Integrity vs. Insanity

"Know ye that the LORD He is God: it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves" (Psalm 100:3).  "The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them… He that winneth souls is wise" (Proverbs 11:3,30).  "The loftiness of man shall be bowed down… Cease ye from man… for wherein is he to be accounted of?" (Isaiah 2:17,22).  "Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved… Save yourselves from this untoward generation" (Acts 2:21,40). 

The Lord has made humanity,
But not all come to this conclusion. 
How blind is this insanity
That credits self-made evolution!   

Integrity shall be the guide
That clearly sees God's evidence.
Perversity shall lead to pride
That robs a man of common sense. 

The loftiness of men is short,
And their insanity shall cease, 
Yet now the Gospel they distort
Is still man's only hope for peace. 

O Lord, integrity today
Now seems to be in short supply. 
Against insanity we pray,
To see souls saved before they die.
