Arise! Obey! And Follow God!


Arise! Obey! And follow God!
Upon these feet which he hath shod.
He guards us with his heavenly sword,
Which is his own, almighty Word.

But do we thank him for his deeds?
For tending to our every need?
No, we think we had all the wit,
And our Lord Jesus we emit.

The mocker pride’s our sure demise.
Why listen to the devil’s lies?
For pride will come before a fall,
Oh, sinner listen to my call!

The dragon pride, creeps in on us;
What happened to our selflessness?
We need to see that we are low,
Arise! Obey! to God follow!
