Psalm 12: As in the days of Noah
My apologies, for this Psalm does contain swear words. If you are using this in worship you might like to tone down the language!
Help, Lord! The world has gone to the dogs!
Not a soul is godly
not a shred of decency anywhere!
All that was good has leeched away
All that is disgusting is applauded
We’ve thrown the baby out with the bathwater
All that’s left is lies
Bullshit reigns supreme
No one gives a damn about truth any more (perhaps "no one cares about truth" would be better?)
All is sham and show
All is boast and bravado
And worse, far worse, than all the bluffing
is that no one cares about the poor.
“If you’re broke it’s your own stupid fault”
we say and turn the other way.
This upsets the Lord God
for he made a promise to the poor
to uphold them, to be with them
and God’s promises are crystal clear
tough as titanium.
What will you do about it, God?
Wash the whole lot away? Start over
if you could find one good man
and a boat-load of animals?
When will you bring him back, that Son of Man
to make all things new?
Dare we pray – come, Lord Jesus, come!?!
Psalm 12 (verse 6): Pure Silver
The promises of God are pure
pure like silver
silver melted and poured
melted and poured
until it shines so perfect.
