Saturday’s Verse From Deuteronomy

Wicked Generation

Oh you wicked generation 
who has turned away, 
what will you then
at your judgment say?

“But I didn’t know,
nobody ever told me”, 
 when you wouldn’t hear 
and you wouldn’t see.

You deny the Truth 
when in front of you   
because you do not want 
My commands to do.

When the end does come, 
you will see My face
as you stand before 
My throne in your disgrace!

And what of your sins,
for which you cannot lie 
when I’ll see each one
of them before you die?

There’ll be no excuse, 
nor any good reason. 
Know, as with everything, 
there is but a season.

Will only a wasted life
be what’s in your hand? 
Will you hang your head
 when before Me you stand?

Or rather be the one 
who does hold it high
as I say, “Well done!”, 
and your praises cry?

Don’t you want to be 
as the good, wise son 
who does change his ways 
before his life is done?
