Who is this that darkens counsel,
Speaking with some words without knowledge;
Stating of things not factual,
Negative thoughts that discourage.
Prepare for a difficult task,
That God will be questioning you;
And you answer what He will ask,
To your knowledge as being true.
Where were you when the Lord had laid,
For the foundation of the earth;
Tell Him if you have been afraid,
Since the very time of your birth.
Who had defined the measurement,
Stretching measuring lines across;
Who do you think that does lament,
Suffering of His Son from loss.
So, on what were its bases set,
And who had laid its cornerstone;
Who do you think had paid your debt,
Now in Heaven sits on the throne.
When all the morning stars had sung,
All the sons of God shout for joy;
Heavenly sound comes from each tongue,
Cries out of love flows to deploy.
Who shut up the sea when it bursts,
While it comes out of the womb;
Who do you think that will be first,
For rescuing you from the tomb.
Who made the storm clouds His garment,
And thick darkness His swaddling band;
Who gave Satan admonishment,
For disobeying His command.
Who would have prescribed its limits,
Setting in place the bolts and doors;
Who punishes who solicits,
For performing sexual chores.
Who does command His decreed place,
Who controls the wind and the waves;
Who saves you with redeeming grace,
Satisfying you of your craves.
For from here you may come and go;
Confined for going no farther;
Calming of your proud waves that flow,
As commanded by the Father.
