you say I have relinquished my sovereignty

have given up my own authority

for that of the government

that I am now no more than slave, a vassal

for yielding my power to another

but I ask you to think, have I done so

I live beneath the authority and governance of man

behind whose righteous acts is always God

Whom I obey in obeying them

 

you say I have relinquished my sovereignty

I say I am merely a man

yielded full to his Sovereign

 

you say I am a coward

I say I am merely a man

obedient as righteousness allows
