Oh how I envy you

You’re so lucky
You don’t ignore
You just don’t have a clue
Working with the guys
to get back to normal

Oh how I envy you
As your newspapers
Don’t inform
And your pastors
Echo ignorance

Oh I wish
I was this ignorant

As this will pass
And the temporary
Turns out
being the permanent

Oh my god,
You ask around
How did this happen

Then they sadly
Have to reveal
“While you
We’re Sleeping”

But then
There’s God

Ignoring your ignorance
In the hidden
Preparing the unexpected
The seemly unneeded

Building the Manger
While they build the Cross

Salvation to be born
So ready to die

May ignorance
Not stop
The promise to come

May lack not withhold

While vision departs
And wisdom is far
Thank god there is He
To step in

Oh remnant take courage
Hold on a little while
Don’t envy the ignorant
And answer the call

Be Gideon
Be Moses
Be Daniel
Be Him

Don’t stop to be silent
Don’t think you’re irrelevant
It’s the few
That answer the call
For the sake
of the many

As the One
came for us all!

“Unless the Lord builds the house,
those who build it labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city,
the watchman stays awake in vain.
It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to his beloved sleep.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭127:1-2‬ ‭ESV‬‬
