Well or Woe?

"Run now… and say… Is it well with thee?" (2 Kings 4:26).   [Title:  A Song or Psalm for the sons of Korah…] "O LORD God of my salvation… lover and friend hast Thou put far from me" (Psalm 88:1,18).  "The memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot… The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich " (Proverbs 10:7,22).  "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us… that the blessing of Abraham might come… through Jesus Christ" (Galatians 3:13,14). 

Now is it well or is it woe?
We need to hear what God will say! 
There is no other way to know
As we're approaching judgment day. 

As Korah's sons could testify,
They saw God's blessing in the end
Because they chose to not deny
The Lord for kinsmen or for friend.

The memory of the just is blest;
The name of wicked men shall rot.
All those who come to Christ find rest,
But those rejecting Him do not. 

O Lord, for our sakes You were cursed,
So with our souls it may be well. 
Our woe has been by grace reversed,
For You have rescued us from hell.
