Answer of the Almighty

"Pharaoh said, Who is the LORD, that I should obey His voice to let Israel go?" (Exodus 5:2).  "He healeth the broken in heart...  Great is our Lord, and of great power: His understanding is infinite" (Psalm 147:3-5).  "Have not I written to thee excellent things...  that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?" (Proverbs 22:20,21).  "And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect in weakness" (2 Corinthians 12:9). 

There was a class that was in session
Which Pharaoh surely would attend
To learn the answer of his question
That God would help him comprehend. 

"Who is the Lord?" we hear him say. 
The time had come to go to school.
It is the wise who will obey;
Rebellion will expose the fool. 

The Lord has given us His Word
So we may answer those so moved
To ask for truth and be assured
With counsel that the Lord has proved. 

Almighty God, Your Word is clear
By which Your answer is imparted. 
To those who seek You, You are near
With grace to heal the brokenhearted.
