Spurred to Speak

"If we assay to commune with thee, wilt thou be grieved?  But who can withhold himself from speaking?" (Job 4:2).  "The curse causeless shall not come" (Proverbs 26:2).  "As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.  They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all" (Luke 17:26,27). 

In view of coming consequences,
How can we withhold from speaking? 
Though many raise up their defenses,
The Lord will draw those who are seeking.

If judgment does not have a cause,
Then let us rather hold our peace.
If God is silent, let us pause,
That vain opinion thus may cease. 

Alas, the curse has made its case,   
For sin demands God's holy wrath! 
Yet now the Lord extends His grace
Through Christ, His only saving Path. 

For Christ is likened to the ark
Which Noah built by God's command. 
When clouds had gathered full and dark,
There was a refuge in the land. 

Yet as it was in Noah's day,
The multitudes are not concerned,
Though evidence is on display
To prove the Gospel they have spurned. 

O Lord, how clearly You have spoken
Of things today which have occurred! 
Your Scriptures never have been broken,
And so we speak as we are spurred. 

Lord, guide us daily in Your truth,
As we are spurred to speak for You
To reach the lost, to train our youth,
And show the proof of what is true.
