Precious Truth in Perilous Times

"O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt His name together... O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in Him" (Psalm 34:3,8).  "Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things" (Proverbs 28:5).  "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.  For men shall be... ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth...  All Scripture is given by inspiration of God"  (2 Timothy 3:1-16). 

The troubling times which were foretold
We see unfolding in our day. 
How rightly then we should be bold,
Proclaiming truth while yet we may. 

O let the Lord be magnified,
And let His name be now exalted! 
Christ Jesus lives who for us died;
Let truth be told and lies be halted!   

Though evil men don't understand
The truth of God's approaching wrath,
The Scriptures now are in our hand
As we proclaim Christ's saving path. 

Lord, in these times so perilous
When truth eludes the sinner's heart,  
How precious is Your truth to us
Which, by the Scriptures, You impart!
