February 22 - March 24, 2022

 

why would we condemn the un-Godly

that they do not govern righteously

 

why would we hold them to the standard

that they reject and ignore

 

why would we be surprised

that they rule against the love of God

 

and

 

why would we not weep

that they have not our Hope

 

more to the point

and

more close to home

 

why should we condemn the Godless man

that he does not act in a Godly way

 

why should we hold him to the standard

that we rejoice and adore

 

why should we be surprised

that he does not know the love  of God

 

and

 

why should we not weep

that he has not our Hope

 

even more to the point

and

even closer to home

 

how can I reach the Godless man

that he may see the Godly way

 

how can I lead him to the standard

that he may rejoice and adore

 

how can I encourage him

that he may know the love of God

 

and

 

how can I not sing

when he has found his Hope

 


Hope
