PSALM 119:97-120, READ IT

The Bible stands!  Sure, known as The Word.

Word of God, of course!

Testimonies it stands alone.

Ordinances!  With force!

.

.

Of course, commandments!  To be sure!

Believe!  Obey them and live!

Righteous judgments!  Can you not see?

Sure, promising to give.

.

.

Testimonies of all the Great Ones.

Statues, with all complete!

If we keep them!  But how can this be?

Heard of the Judgment Seat?

.

.

Sure, “There is none Righteous, no not one”.

How then anticipate?

The joys of Heaven?  “Wages of sin…”

“Death” to many, too late!

.

.

All hearts should tremble!  Falling way short

With fear of Hell eternal!

But Jesus gave His Life for sin’s wage,

Cruel cross, discernible!

.

.

Sure, the naked eye could see!  And cringe!

Sight of One hanging  there.

Held  by spikes to die painfully!

But the self-righteous could not care!

.

.

Suffered there!  Yes, the suffering Christ!

The Son of God who gave

His own life, yes, of course He suffered!

All my soul to save!

.

.

Reaction?  Surely it grieves the heart

Of God of love to see

The way we treat this knowledge, His love,

So adamantly!

.

.

Could not care less, our attitude,

Nails, spikes, a cross!

Wear it, see it, just everywhere!

Forgetting the pain, the loss!

.
