Let God, who called the worlds to be,
arise in all-consuming fire
to judge the people righteously
and faithless ones with awe inspire.
This God is ours, and yet we break
the covenant made long ago.
God's words we foolishly forsake,
God's ways we have refused to know,
for though our lips have preached God's law,
our erring hearts have scorned the Name.
We choose the thief and slanderer as friends,
and so increase our shame.
What then shall God, the Lord, demand?
Not gifts or lavish offering,
but vows and promises performed
and lives from which true praises spring!
