The kings of earth have set themselves
Against almighty God.
Their wicked counsel fills their shelves
In books that they applaud.
The day is coming when the Lord
Shall have them in derision.
The Word of God now looks toward
That clear, prophetic vision.
The Word of God now gives a choice
Which counsels us to yield,
To heed the warning of God’s voice,
And trust Him as our Shield.
How clearly has His Spirit spoken
And called us to be wise,
For like a potter’s vessel broken
They’ll be who trust in lies!
We thank You for Your precious Word,
O Lord, so pure and true,
And that Your Shield is assured
For all who trust in You.
