Need of the Next

"The people served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and… all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the LORD, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel" (Judges 2:7,10).  "Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things" (Proverbs 28:5).  "And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man… the flood came, and destroyed them all" (Luke 17:26,27). 

There is need to now impart
The training to this generation
To seek the Lord with all their heart
And understand His great salvation. 

The great deception of our day
Has left the multitudes perplexed,
As generations go astray
And pass confusion to the next. 

There is a clear and present danger
That generations that we raise  
May count the Lord to be a Stranger
When they arise beyond our days. 

O Lord, these days are very dark,
As in the days of Noah's pleading,
But You are like the mighty ark
Our next of kin are sorely needing.
