Fall Foreseen

"If Mordecai be of the seed of the Jews, before whom thou [Haman] hast begun to fall, thou shalt not prevail against him, but shalt surely fall before him" (Esther 6:13).  "Surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto Him" (Psalm 32:6).  "The wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it" (Proverbs 2:22).  "Whosoever shall fall on this Stone [Christ] shall be broken" (Matthew 21:44). 

When Haman had begun to fall,
His dreadful end was surely clear. 
There was no way to then forestall
His self-destruction drawing near. 

The flood in Noah's day was sent
Which was foreseen for many years. 
Yet no one bothered to repent
Before destruction came with tears. 

The day is coming on this earth
When all who will not seek God's face,
Refusing thus the second birth,
Shall perish then without His grace. 

O Lord, the fall has been foreseen
Of all who stumble at the Stone,
And yet we pray You'll intervene
Where we have made Your Gospel known.
