Have you not known?

Many appear to have such a dim and defective view of God,
Few seem to understand what it means to believe in the Lord!
God declares what He, the Creator of the earth can do for man,
His understanding and power are way beyond man’s ken!

He is able to give power to those who are weak and weary,
He can give strength to those who find life sad and dreary.
The natural strength of youth will fail them before too long,
But to those who wait on the Lord, He gives a joyful song!

The faithful turn to the Lord and find their strength renewed,
They learn just how God, would cause their sins, to be subdued.
The reliance on our flesh and our human will end in futility,
God will bless and honour those who seek Him in humility.

The Scriptures contain many promises to all who believe in God,
What is required is the exercise of our faith in the Lord!
We will then discover for ourselves the meaning of “glory,”
God will grant us His power and we can live triumphantly!

The glory of the Lord is evident in the strength of one who is weak,
That strength is seen in the way the servant of God attempts to speak.
He will always testify of the Lord’s grace and mercy from on high,
His heart is filled with joy for he knows that the Lord is truly nigh.
