Supremacy of His Simplicity

"Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:  let them praise the name of the LORD: for His name alone is excellent" (Psalm 148:12,13).  "Be wise in thy latter end… The counsel of the LORD, that shall stand" (Proverbs 19:20,21).  "The prophets prophesy falsely… and My people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?" (Jeremiah 5:31).  "I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ" (2 Corinthians 11:3).   

Let men and maidens, old and young,
Now gather at our Savior's throne,
And let His praise on every tongue
Declare His excellence alone!

Though mockers in the earth arise
To scorn the Gospel we defend,
The Lord shall vindicate the wise
And judge the scorner in the end. 

Yet fools who choose to mock the Lord
Shall soon regret the end thereof
For all the grace that they ignored
When they refused our Savior's love. 

O Lord, the great supremacy
Of faith's unshakable foundation
Is found in the simplicity
Displayed in Your complete salvation!
