Judgment of God

So many of His sheep are prey,
They have become food for the beast;
Since they wander and go astray,
Evil creatures will have a feast.

There was no shepherd for the flock,
That would go and search for the sheep;
They would rather go out and talk,
Then merely go and fall asleep.

So they just fed themselves instead,
Of feeding the sheep day and night;
No care for sheep being unfed,
Not keeping them within their sight.

But the Lord Himself will go search,
He will look for them high and low;
Rescuing them where vultures perch,
And where the poison waters flow.

God will rescue them from the tomb,
Where they wandered into a cave;
And bring them out like from the womb,
Seeing that it is not their grave.

God will seek them out from each land,
And take care of them so they rest;
Leading away from sinking sand,
To a place where they will be blest.

But those sheep that will not come back,
The judgment of God will occur;
Because the faith and trust they lack,
He allows fire to conquer.
