Were It Not

We deserve the fire that burned up Sodom
We are owed the brimstone and the smoke
We are no less wicked, we are no less wrong
It is time to look beyond ourselves for hope

Were it not for Yahweh of Hosts,
Were it not for His One and Only Son:
We would be destroyed in a moment
We would be forever ruined!

He stands with open arms to receive us
His eyes strain to scan the horizon line
His Father-voice commands the joyful feast
In His embrace He says, “You are Mine!”

Were it not for Yahweh of Hosts,
Were it not for His One and Only Son:
We would be destroyed in a moment
We would be forever ruined!

So, come to Him, you weak and heavy-laden
Come to Him and lay your burdens down
Weeping is for only one night staying
But joy comes with morning’s glorious crown

Were it not for Yahweh of Hosts,
Were it not for His One and Only Son:
We would be destroyed in a moment
We would be forever ruined!
