Quality of our Quarrel

"Merib-baal [Heb. Quarreler against Baal] begat Micah [Heb. Who is like JAH?] (1 Chronicles 8:34).  "His merciful kindness… and the truth of the LORD endureth forever" (Psalm 117:2).  "My mouth shall speak truth… He established the clouds above… He gave to the sea His decree… He appointed the foundations of the earth" (Proverbs 8:7-31).  "In the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils… Save thyself, and them that hear thee" (1 Timothy 4:1,16). 

We have a quarrel with the liar
Who in our day dismisses truth. 
We stand against the thief's desire
To rob the Gospel from our youth. 

There is no other like the Lord
Who gave Himself for our salvation. 
His mercy and His truth afford
Our soul's escape from condemnation. 

He hung the earth in outer space  
With laws established by His voice. 
He came to save us by His grace,
Presented to us as a choice. 

Lord, in this day of dark defiance,
Our quarrel stands against seduction. 
The quality of our reliance
On You has saved us from destruction.
