GOD IS GOD
When you say to men "God is God
They seem to see the truth and nod.
And when you say "He can do anything"
They will surely like that orthodox ring.
But when you say "HE chose"
Their minds begin to close.
For they have learned by rote,
Mankind has the deciding vote.
It matters not what scriptures say;
Modern man must have his sway.
"Let God be God but not over me!"
In every man Adam shouts his plea.
For in each man there speaks a voice,
"Thank you,please, I'll make my own choice.
Let God be God and do what I say.
If He won't, then I won't play."
Then he boasts and appeals to reason,
"I chose God and I'm not teasin'."
"Reason will answer," men declare,
"We chose him, that makes him fair."
Some never learn that they've got it wrong;
They just keep singing that tired old song.
Reason wins over every decree.
God does not decide they all agree.
"He has no right over man's clay.
We saved ourselves on a lucky day."
This is the pride of Adam's whole race.
"We need just a little divine grace.'
And that pretty much tell man's story;
If he needs little grace, he gets much glory.
Except that truth just keeps on repeating,
"Don't you know my grace your depleting?"
So, my friend-----
When you learn your opinion to shun,
You'll probably find an "election" you've won.
You'll hear, far above reasons noise and din,
A voice, "My will too needed to be born again."
