We look around at a world
That is changing day by day.
A little here, a little there,
Truth and Justice fade away.
It is so easy to react,
To point our fingers and to judge,
But we must learn to forgive.
It only hurts us to hold a grudge.
We can't condone these changes.
The churches must shine a while more.
We must learn to love the sinners
While our hearts are torn by war.
A battle between God's Spirit
And the lawlessness of man.
While the Lord still extends his mercy,
The end must come as planned.
We must keep walking in the Spirit,
Holding forth the Word of Life,
And pray that they will hear it
Amidst the emptiness and strife.
Petitioning our Father
For the souls that come our way.
With our hearts in one accord,
Waiting for that coming Day.
As brethren in Christ Jesus,
We must firmly hold our ground.
Watching for our Lord's return,
Praying a faithful remnant will be found.
Pleading for the Righteous Judge
To establish Justice once again,
Waiting for the Prince of Peace
To begin His endless reign.

The Lord is not slack concerning his
promise, as some men count slackness;
but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish,
but that all should come to repentance.
2 Peter 3:9
For unto us a child is born, unto us
a son is given:
and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end,
upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it,
and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever.
The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
