Fail not your Lord God

Fail not your Lord God,
At any place your trod.
Be in your heart wise and brave,
And from sinning yourself save.

Fail not Christ Jesus at all,
Keep away from doubt whether big or small.
Be in always pure and humble,
Against the Saviour do not grumble.

Fail not the Holy Spirit so dear,
Against evil you do not fear.
Reject the vile ways of the flesh,
And by God’s Word your soul refresh.

Avoid having a vacant mind

Avoid having a vacant mind,
Lest from heavens path you get left behind.
Blank not your mind even mildly,
Lest your life goes on wildly.

Avoid being away from God’s Word in thought disengaged,
Lest by the dark insidious world you get upstaged.
Never ever hollow your soul,
Lest you miss your heavenly goal.

Avoid blankly using your head,
Lest you don’t discern instead.
Avoid not thinking at all,
Lest you don’t do good either big or small.

Stay away from pride

Stay away from pride,
And in God confide.
Stay away from pride,
Lest mercy from you hide.

Stay away from pride,
And in God’s word abide.
Stay away from pride,
Lest it cause you to backslide.

Stay away from pride,
And in God’s way stride.
Stay away from pride,
Lest your faith gets dried.

Stay away from pride,
And in God’s will, be justified.
Stay away from pride,
Lest your life be unqualified.

The righteous are bold as a lion

The righteous are bold as a lion,
Everywhere and even at Mount Zion.
Those led by God, fear not anyone that hates,
And by Christ, they possess the enemies gates.

The wicked flee when no one pursues,
Such hearts secretly fear sins dues.
Those that are proud, God resists,
And for the unrepentant, judgement persists.

Now righteous or wicked, you cannot be both,
Accept what is good, but all sin you loathe.
Courage comes naturally to God’s chosen,
So, against the darkness don’t be frozen.

Look at those brave who the evil overcame,
They stood for God and his name all the same.
Ignore not these witnesses in heaven,
But partake of the Gospel’s leaven.

Do not idolise those close to the Lord

We often make the people closest to the Lord into our idols. This is why Moses was not given a public burial, because God knew the people would have dug up his bones and worshiped them, making them into idols and relics, which is what eventually happened to Moses’s staff. It’s also why he veiled his face, to keep himself from pride, and other from worshiping him. (Robert Brownell)

Tougher than the Holy life

Compared to the Holy life the sinful life is tougher,
For the wages of sin in eternal life is rougher.
In the Holy life you’re rejected by worldly beings,
While in the sinful life you’re rejected by heavenly beings.

Sin may seem to have pleasure in its initial payoff,
But from eternal joy it’s simply much way off.
Now holiness makes less friends,
While sinfulness begets hopeless ends.

Some think of sin as useful tool,
Only to be caught up like a fool.
Beware that anger, hate and regret,
In Hell does the sinner get.

Work out your salvation

Work out your salvation with fear and trembling,
Always have faith to refrain from stumbling.
Guard your heart with much care,
Against all those to deceive you dare.

Work out your salvation not alone,
Be always in the Holy Spirit’s zone.
Ever be vary of apostates vile,
If they your belief revile.

Work out your salvation with cleverness,
Always worshiping God with eagerness.
Your salvation so great is given by God,
Through Christ where no other could trod.

Work out your salvation with quality,
That your conduct never have frivolity.
The Gospel you’ve been given to hold and follow,
So that you walk with Christ beyond each tomorrow.

O Lord keep me away from danger

O Lord keep me away from danger,
From things familiar and stranger.
Keep me O Christ from traps hidden,
And the paths where darkness had ridden.

Turn me away from crookedness,
Let me not delight in wickedness.
Make me not desire timid silence,
Nor let me cherish sinister violence.

Cause me O Lord Jesus to be secure,
And also keep my gaze pure.
Let me not be enticed,
By those you have despised.

By your Holy Spirit cause me to have favour,
In the eyes of others when I rest or labour.
That all creatures benign or deadly,
Refrain from harming me, readily.

Let me be hidden from witchcraft’s eyes,
And from evil spirit’s especially one’s in disguise.
Keep me O Lord always in your grace,
That in your presence I find my place.

When do sinners receive justice without mercy?

Carry your cross daily

Carry your cross daily O believer,
And do not listen to the deceiver.
Carry it for Christ’s honour,
Even if you’re in a lonely corner.

Hold on to your cross even if others fail,
Be steadfast in both spring and hail.
Consider the saints and witness of God above,
For they endured in holiness and love.

Crucify the flesh and its sinful desires,
And you’ll escape the everlasting fires.
Don’t please the haters of your soul,
For destruction is their goal.

Walk towards the Lord God with humility,
To receive peace greater than worldly tranquility.
Ask for grace if you find the cross difficult to carry,
Don’t be overconfident and unwary.
