"Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more... And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying" (Genesis 37:5,11). "The LORD is righteous: He hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked" (Psalm 129:4). "I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths" (Proverbs 4:11). "Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God" (1 Corinthians 10:31).
Our God knows how to cut the cords
Of envy, wickedness, and pride
That threaten those who are the Lord's,
As Joseph surely testified.
The Lord has led us in the path
That separates us by His light
From those who neither flee from wrath
Nor walk in pathways that are right.
With bands of love by Christ we're led;
The cords of sin our Lord will sever.
Let everything that's done and said
Now glorify our God forever!
Lord, cut the cords that You can see
Still cause our hearts to go astray,
And let the truth now make us free
And lead us in Your perfect way.
