If the Lord Removes His Blessing
If the LORD removes his blessing,
All may seem at first still stable--
Lots of lovers still caressing,
Human deeds as folks are able--
But without the Spirit's power,
Evil flourishing and crowing,
Truth will perish in an hour
And go fleeing from men's knowing.
Once God's blessing's dissipated,
Can a curse be far behind?
And the feeble thing created
Doesn't know that it's now blind.
For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. (Romans 1:21 ESV)
