Still

Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices!
- (Psalm 37:7 ESV)

And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
- (Mark 4:39 ESV)


Still…
As the words pour from His mouth
Bring eternal life to the dead
And surety of death to the lifeless

Still…
Seated on His throne from on high
Righteous in judgment;
“King of Kings and Lord of Lords” on His thigh

Still…
Let the killers kill
Let the dealers deal
If you’re filthy, stay filthy
And if you’re righteous, be certain

Still…
Let the world be shocked and stunned
When the Kingdom comes
Put an end to sin and death
By the power of His tongue

Every knee bow at the return of the Son
The Righteousness of God –
The Holy risen One!



From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.
- (Revelation 19:15-16 ESV)

And he said to me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near. Let the evildoer still do evil, and the filthy still be filthy, and the righteous still do right, and the holy still be holy.”
“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay each one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
 - (Revelation 22:10-13 ESV)


Soli Deo Gloria,
