HOW LONG

How long can rolling waters stay
Impure in their decree
How long can all the world behold
The many signs they see
And not consider what is meant
And come to understand
The fig tree has sent forth her leaves
The summer’s nigh at hand

What power can stay the heavens
Does the world posses the force
Can man with puny arm turn back
A river from its course
For it is written every jot
And tittle must fulfill
The day rolls on and God doth move
According to his will

But it would seem mankind will not
Allow the signs they see
To soften heart and open mind
And fall on bended knee
Ere long the scripture stands in place
And sadly it is true
“They that are called be many…
And the chosen are but few”
