Father’s Firm Hand

From Psalm 94:1-2:  “Lord, you God of vengeance, you God of vengeance, shine forth!  Rise up, O judge of the earth; give to the proud what they deserve!”

Holy, perfect Father

Bringing justice for all

Earth’s one, ultimate Judge

Love covers, like rainfall

 

Truest God of vengeance

Providing blessed Grace

Living high in Heaven

Father’s firm hand, in place

 

Lives thirst for discipline

Teaching knowledge, His Word

Knowing our hollow thoughts

Empty breath, minds stand blurred

 

Over the roaring seas

On highest mountaintops

Across fertile valleys

Earth’s Judge shall never stop

 

Gracious to believers

God’s goodness and kindness

Through our faith, accept Grace

Love overcomes blindness

 

Judging with righteousness

God’s law rules over all

Vanquishing the wicked

Justice builds righteous walls

From Psalm 98:8-9:  “Let the floods clap their hands; let the hills sing together for joy at the presence of the Lord, for He is coming to judge the earth.  He will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with equity.”
