Good News vs. Godless Noise

"The floods have lifted up their voice… The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea" (Psalm 93:3,4).  "I have led thee in right paths… The path of the just is as the shining light… The way of the wicked is as darkness" (Proverbs 4:11,18,19).  "I found Him whom my soul loveth" (Song of Solomon 3:4).  "These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace.  In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world" (John 16:33). 

The godless loudly lift their voice
Incessantly like crashing waves,
But God is greater than their noise,
Declaring still that Jesus saves! 

The Lord is leading souls aright
To show the way of His salvation. 
His path is as the shining light;
The way is dark to condemnation. 

How good the news is from above
That God has sent to us a Savior!
Our soul has found Him whom we love;
His love for us shall never waver. 

The godless noise, Lord, does not cease,
But Good News even so is clear:   
Your words to us convey Your peace
With joy that triumphs in Your cheer!
