Rehearsing the Reversal

"Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness… The wicked shall see it, and be grieved… the desire of the wicked shall perish" (Psalm 112:4,10).  "Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the LORD all the day long.  For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off" (Proverbs 23:17,18).  "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!" (Isaiah 14:12).  "They rehearsed all that God had done… and how He had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles" (Acts 14:27). 

The light in darkness shall arise
For all who trust in Christ our Lord,
But everyone who trusts in lies
Shall forfeit heaven's sure reward. 

It's time for us to comprehend
The plight of those without salvation,
For God has shown to us the end
That contradicts their expectation.

When Lucifer from heaven fell,
Deceived at last by his own pride,
His great reversal led to hell
For him and all who take his side. 

We thank You, Lord, as we rehearse
The price You paid to save the lost:  
You gave Your life to thus reverse
Our destiny at such a cost!
