1.

In this world where sins abound

It’s easy to despair.

Precious is the truth when found

How vital that we share.

 

For evil will grow stronger

Before the light prevails.

We know not how much longer

This battle will entail.

2.

In this world where right and wrong

Are easily confused

Where the wicked ones grow strong

And power is abused;

 

We daily flee deception

In order to stay pure.

We must change our perception

In order to endure.

3.

In this world where God is mocked

We all must heed them not.

For God’s work cannot be blocked

By any evil plot.

 

Those who bear the burdens now

Will stand when Christ returns.

Then, when every knee shall bow,

This earthly vineyard burns.

4.

For this world will rise anew

Cleansed from impurity.

God will His every Saint renew

With holy surety.

 

We’ll not dwell on former things

Nor have a need of tears.

Servants of the King of Kings,

We’ll praise a thousand years.
