Light amid Lies

"In [God's] hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind… He discovereth deep things out of darkness, and bringeth out to light the shadow of death" (Job 12:10,12).  "This God… will be our Guide even unto death" (Psalm 48:14).  "A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself" (Proverbs 18:2).  "Who then can be saved?  And Jesus… saith… with God all things are possible… For even the Son of man came… to give his life a ransom for many" (Mark 10:26,27,45). 

The soul of every living thing
And every single human breath
Are in the hand of God our King
Who brings to light our day of death. 

Though many think they can dismiss
The truth about when one has died,
The Lord Himself exposes this,
And graciously, He is our Guide. 

A fool has no delight in truth;
His heart in darkness is content,
Though God reproves him from his youth
With light that bids him to repent. 

O Lord, Your light amid the lies
Reveals heaven's love so full. 
You gave Your Word to make us wise;
You gave Your life to save our soul!
