“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” — 1 Peter 5:8 (NIV)
The seas pound with rhythm,
Like rhyme in an ancient song,
The daily theme of life flows by,
As the church bells go bong, bong, bong,
People quickly drift out of houses,
Making their way to service;
The wicked and thieves plan their vices,
They pray a victim will fall into their traps,
Agents watching the devils prey
They have schemed sinful snares
Waiting for the innocent and guilty alike
Patiently they wait.
YMI note: Although the world may at times resemble a choppy sea, do not be dismayed for the Lord our God is at the helm of our ship and He will always guide us to safety.
