Avenger God

Guard your turf,

Avenger-God,

Judge of earth.

Pay back the proud

for their loud mouths.

How long, O Lord,

will the wicked be glad?

How long will their words

boast and brag?

They pummel your people;

they crush your kids.

They kill widows and orphans

and immigrants.

They believe you don’t see.

Well, listen up, fools!

Get a clue!

God makes the rules.

Give him his due!

Ear creator hears.

Eye designer sees.

Knowledge maker knows.

Wicked plans get trashed,

but God’s plans stand.

And we’re blessed.

inspired by Psalm 94:1-12
from Simple Psalms, #232
