Rage & Vanity


the nations rage

the peoples plot vanity

endlessly seeking to overthrow God

Who in the heavens laughs

Who ridicules their futile schemes

uses them to accomplish His own


and we

we who call ourselves by His name

what then of us

do we shudder at the nations' rage

do we quail before the peoples' plots

do we cower before an ineffective world

do we live in fear and trembling

of nations and peoples who have no power, or

do we have our hope in He Who saves us


Rage & Vanity
