Kingdoms rise and kingdoms fall...
Times of sickness, times of health,
Times of poverty and wealth,
But the LORD is over all.
He will keep his chosen few...
All who seek not wealth, not fame;
All who live in Jesus' name.
Though they die, they'll be made new.
It may seem sins just increase.
Do not fret though evil sways
Multitudes to sing its praise,
Rest in Jesus. Be at peace.
...the Most High rules the kingdom of men and gives it to whom he will and sets over it the lowliest of men. (Daniel 4:17 ESV)
