The Righteous and the Wicked
The Word has been hard against me,
How have I spoken against God?
Because it is too hard to see,
Just exactly where I am flawed.
Is it vain for serving the Lord?
What profit of keeping His charge?
Walk mournfully in one accord,
To be corrupted by enlarge.
Now we call the arrogant glad,
Bless be the proud fortunate;
Considering the righteous as bad,
And the evil as passionate.
Evildoers not only prosper,
But always puts God to the test;
The government seems to pamper,
The wickedness that they do best.
And then those who have feared the Lord,
Are speaking with one another;
But the Lord has never ignored,
Those who are kind to their brother.
They are His treasured possession,
He will spare anyone who serves;
Without an earthly obsession,
Being humbled with righteous nerves.
Between the wicked and righteous,
Those who serve God and who does not;
The Lord will be serving justice,
Of those whom the darkness has sought.
