SAVING GRACE


Habakkuk Lyrics

n a world of increasing international crises
and internal corruption,
nation rises against nation around the world and sin abounds at home.
World powers aim an ever-increasing array
of complex
nuclear weapons
at each other while they speak of peace.
The world at war seems incredibly imminent.
While the stage is set for a global holocaust,
an unsuspecting home audience
ignorantly sings a blissful tune.
The world's moral fiber is being eaten away
by a playboy philosophy
that makes personal pleasure
the supreme rule of life.
Hedonism catches fire while homes crumble.
Crime soars while the church grows sour.
Drugs, divorce, and debauchery prevail
and decency dies.
Frivolity dances in the streets.
Faith is buried.
"In God we trust"
has become a meaningless slogan
stamped on corroding coins.
(In this world of crisis and chaos, the Prophet Habakkuk speaks with
clarity. Heed his admonition. Heed his warning.)
Take heart for through intercession,
worry transforms to worship,
fear turns to faith,
terror becomes trust.
Doubts resolved with hope
and anguish melts into adoration.
Then the heart can rest in the surety that Christ is King,
(and patiently await His return.)
Come Lord Jesus!
Emanuel!
Come Lord Jesus
Bring Your Glory!
Come Lord Jesus!
Emanuel!
Come Lord Jesus!
Bring Your Justice!
