The Fool

Psalm 14

Who is the man who says there’s no God?
The Bible calls him a fool.
In arrogant pride he lives on this sod
Believing God’s Word is untrue.

His heart is corrupt, his deeds are vile;
His ideals are empty gas.
With vain philosophy he beguiles
The sycophants in his class.

The Lord looks down from heaven on high
Observing the human race.
He searches vainly for all who are wise,
Who desire to seek His face.

He finds not one, for all turned away
To a state of spiritual demise.
There’s no longing to learn or pray,
For they’re tuned to the Father of Lies.

These sons of Satan never learn.
They devour the poor like bread.
Someday the truth they blithely spurn
Will fill them with fear and dread.

But the Lord is the refuge to the poor;
It’s a truth in which to rejoice.
Believers will go to heaven for sure
At the sound of the trump and His voice.

How I long for the day of salvation
When all that was lost is restored;
Receiving heaven’s glorification
And living with Christ our Lord.

I’m going to live in heaven some day.
I hope you will be there too.
Seek the Lord, His teachings weigh;
Don’t play the part of a fool.
