Because the rain clouds cover
Doesn’t mean the sun is gone -
Because the winter claims the earth
Doesn’t mean it will be bare;
For when the Springtime comes again
The flowers will appear,
Because God says “Wait awhile”..
Doesn’t mean that He’s not near.
Because the old time cherished ways
Are voted down - dismissed;
Because the double standard holds
Means something is amiss;
But unless they chisel granite ~
Less they have civil war,
The Words are woven in the rights
Right down to this country’s core.
God is standing by to see
A few good men awake;
God gives opportunity for
He knows what’s at stake,
If we don’t stand tyrants will rule ~
And even if they vote God out...
It won’t cause His great authority
To wane, ~ please, have no doubt.
There still will come a day to stand
Because He said ‘twould be;
There still will stand a host to answer
What we did with Thee;
There still will be the gathering
To the heart of God, His own ~
There still will come the Land of peace;
When all the saints get home!
