Let us all be subjected unto a higher power,
Since no one ever supersedes the Endower;
For there's no authority that is not of God,
All ordered by Him who we honor and laud;
Whoever is against His law is against Him,
And the wrath of God will make things grim;
Rulers are not causes of fear in good works,
Rather to the evil hiding in caves it lurks;
Having no fear of the authority go do good,
And you shall have praises as you should;
But if you do evil deeds then you have fear,
Then the sword of His wrath is very near.
Maybe we do not like government as it is,
But it's a blessing of authority that's His;
Whoever president is acting on His behalf,
Just as a cabinet is picked as his staff;
Power of authority from a higher source,
As for our elections that God will endorse;
That is why to vote is a God given right,
To keep government good in His might.
