— Psalm 46:10 —
“Be still, and know that I am GOD.
I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”
I only wish to teach you right,
Why do you ignore the light?
You have to kick against the goads,
Clinging to your heavy load.
Will you not accept his way?
And praise him ever–all your days;
It truly is, son, for the best,
And then you would be really blessed.
You must give in and don’t fight GOD,
Yes, tread the way the Master trod;
Be submissive–do his will,
With JOY-your days He’ll fill.
He says “Give in, please do not fight,
To serve me you must know is right;
I am your Master, I am the LORD,
The one who bears the mighty sword.”
And soon will come the reign of peace,
The will to struggle–it will cease;
For everyone shall know my name,
The reason why–Christ Jesus came.
For soon the iron rod will rule,
So listen please, don’t be a fool;
For Jesus loves you–serve him now,
For soon to him all knees will bow.
