Seek the Lord as He may be found,
Call on Him while He is near;
For He will not make any sound,
Very carefully you must hear.
Let wicked people quit their ways,
As the evil abandon thoughts;
Trying to trap the one that strays,
From all their enticing onslaughts.
Let them return unto the Lord,
And He shows compassion to them;
Confessions will not be ignored,
And no longer will He condemn.
Let them return to our God,
Because He will freely forgive;
If they show Him honor and laud,
He will then allow them to live.
For His thoughts are never as yours,
As your ways not the same as His;
Since you are tempted by the lures,
Fallible to stray in a whizz.
As Heaven is higher than earth,
So are also the ways of God;
Because His thoughts has much more worth,
And why they would never be flawed.
Rain and snow come down from the sky,
They stay until they soak the earth;
As the seeds sprout where they would lie,
While the sun is giving birth.
That produces food for to eat,
To be consumed by man and beast;
As animals provide the meat,
So man will be having a feast.
His Word comes from His tongue and lips,
And not come back without results;
Quenching the throat while one sips,
Through the prayers for someone consults.
It will accomplish what He wants,
To achieve what He is to do;
As any unbeliever taunts,
Understanding they misconstrue.
