The Lord is not slow in keeping His Word,
It may seem to some of being quite absurd;
But He is really waiting in mercy for you,
Not desiring your destruction to construe;
Rather for you to turn from your evil ways,
And to hear from you worship and praise;
For the day of the Lord to come as a thief,
People will stand in awe of such disbelief;
That day when Heaven will be rolled up,
With a monstrous noise that will develop;
Things on earth changed by violent heat,
As the entire world is burnt up in defeat;
Seeing that all things will come to an end,
Being holy and righteous for to transcend.
Many people show a cheap form of grace,
Lips deceive as the heart full of disgrace;
The day to come soon to judge everyone,
As deception shines detected by the Son;
Be true to your word, truth in your heart,
Holiness and righteousness for to impart.
