Each turn of the Old Testament,
from Garden fall through lions' den,
records great efforts God has spent
to call His children to repent
in spite of kings and learned men.
God did not seek the proud and strong.
He does not now, He did not then.
For pride cannot admit one wrong;
instead, it rushes in headlong
pursuit of kings and learned men.
So through the ages God has watched
and pressed His Word through prophets' pen.
Though blades and axes have been notched,
Man's power-grab was clearly botched:
firstfruits of kings and learned men.
What science can't explain away,
the press still buries on page ten.
No black and white, just shades of gray,
obscure the truth to "seize the day!"
this curse of kings and learned men.
Before the jury stands and sits,
the Judge convenes the courtroom when
His calendar and schedule fits.
Whom God condemns, or Christ acquits
unheard of kings and learned men.
