The anger of the Lord can flare,
If you are trying make a dare;
If you are defying His Word,
And ignoring what you have heard.
He has killed of the strongest men,
And whole cities time and again;
He has brought down the tallest towers,
Flooded the earth with His powers.
In spite of all this we still sin,
Remaining corrupted within;
No longer with any belief,
That God would give any relief.
You brought all their days to an end,
When you refused to make amend;
And like the whisper in the wind,
You disregard as you have sinned.
But you brought their years of terror,
While realizing your error;
God decided not to condemn,
And able to kill some of them.
And for the rest you searched for them,
Since God promised He would condemn;
If they did not turn from their sin,
As they look for God deep within.
They remembered God was their rock,
He will listen if you will talk;
The Most High was their defender,
To whom your soul you surrender.
Do not flatter using your tongue,
Words from the heart not from the lung;
His promise is faithful to forgive,
And in His peace able to live
