Injustice Will Receive its Just Reward

As most of you already have noticed, I have tried to ignore extreme politics. However, the state of our nation and other nations around the world scream anger.  No longer can I ignore injustice.  George Floyd called for his mother and mothers around the world heard his cry. It is hard for me to put my emotions in print.  I can only give you this hymn I learned when I was in college.

Once to Every Man and Nation

Verse 1

Once to every man (woman) and nation,

Comes the moment to decide,

In the strife of truth with falsehood,

For the good or evil side;

Some great cause, God’s new Messiah,

Offering each the bloom or blight.

And the choice goes by forever,

‘twixt that darkness and that light.

Verse 2 

Then to side with truth is noble.

When we share her wretched crust,

Ere her cause bring fame and profit,

And ’tis prosperous to be just,

Then it is the brave man chooses

while the coward stand aside,

Till the multitude make virtue

Of the faith they had denied.

 

Verse 3

By the light of burning martyrs,

Christ, Thy bleeding feet we track,

Toiling up new Calvaries ever

With the cross that turns not back,

New occasions teach new duties,

Time makes ancient good uncouth,

They must upward still and onward,

Who would keep abreast of truth.

Verse 4

Though the cause of evil prosper,

Yet ’tis truth alone is strong;

Though her portion be the scaffold,

And upon the throne be wrong,

Yet that scaffold sways the future,

And behind the dim unknown,

Standeth God within the shadow,

Keeping watch above His own.

God will take care of His children. The brave man dies once

but the coward dies many deaths.
