How to fear the Lord’s strong hand That seeks to do me good When dark foes throughout the land Don’t fear him as they should. How audacious is their plan? They strive. They war. They kill. Disrespecting every man Who seeks to do thy will. Punishing your children far And wide and close to home, Oft’ I wonder where you are And why you let them roam. Lord, I know some future day Your justice will cry out. Why do you not show today That these men you will rout? Lord, I find it hard to fear You when your works aren’t seen. Let me see that you are near With just and loving mien. Let me know the wicked foes Are under your control And your loving justice grows To make the broken whole. Teach me how to fear a’right And live so you I please. As you then for justice fight, I’ll live down on my knees.
