Excuses will not be tolerated

On that fast approaching day…

Since we’ve all been told, encouraged or warned

Of God’s standards and His ways.

The work of God Almighty

All of creation it glorifies;

The flora and fauna so perfect

In every shape, form or size.

A healthy reverence for God

Will make us all realise;

That we’re fearfully and wonderfully made

And so precious in God’s eyes.

Through pain, trials and tribulation

Our character is strengthened and changed,

And its through the ashes of our experience

That a lasting beauty remains.

But our pride and the lust of the eyes

Should leave us and depart;

As we abandon the shackles of our deceit

And sincerely repent from the heart.

Don’t allow the opinions of others

To confuse or unsettle your soul…

The solution is in the Word of God

As all of God’s treasures unfold.

No excuse will be justified

So let’s awaken from our slumber,

And when the saints go boldly marching in

Let’s all ensure we’re in that number!
