Blind to Blessing

"Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty, do they that know Him not see His days?" (Job 24:1).  "Thou hast given a banner to them that fear Thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth" (Psalm 60:4).  "My son, if thou wilt receive My words, and hide My commandments with thee… then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD" (Proverbs 2:1-5).  "Can the blind lead the blind?  Shall they not both fall into the ditch?... Why call ye Me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?" (Luke 6:39,46). 

How blind are men in these last days
To truth that God has clearly shown: 
The prophecies that He displays
Have been fulfilled, yet are not known! 

The banner that we have received
Displays the truth fulfilled in Christ: 
The prophecies we have believed
Foretold He would be sacrificed!

So why do men not see today?  
And why do they refuse to hear? 
They're blind because they won't obey
The Lord whom they refuse to fear! 

How blind to blessing which they need  
Are sinners, Lord, who could be rich! 
We pray for them and those they lead
Before they fall into the ditch.
