Drive Them Out

Taken From Judges 1:19-36

The land of promise, Lord, is ours;

The land of honey, milk, and rest.

We need but conquer as we go;

Our Lord will drive them from their nest.

 

But, Lord, we have a peaceful spot;

A place that we can call our home.

We grow so weary of the fight;

No longer do we want to roam.

 

The gentle people that remain;

Who dwell in towns we cannot take.

We do not want to drive them out;

We just want peace; we need a break.

 

We wonít fight them; they wonít fight us;

We will have rest and dwell in peace.

Yet, Lord, you say thatís not the truth;

Our trials now will never cease.

 

Because we failed to drive them out,

Forevermore theyíll cause us pain.

What we had thought would bring us ease,

Will hold us like a mighty chain.

 

Lord, may I now this lesson learn;

Please drive it deep into my heart.

Until I leave this evil world,

My battles never will depart.

 

When I shall find within myself,

Unconquered heart; rebellious flesh;

The battle trumpet I will blow;

Once more Iíll join the fight afresh.

 

With grit and mud; with sweat and blood;

With heart and mind; with toil and prayer;

Iíll show myself to be a man;

Iíll do for God as faith will dare.

 

With God my Helper, I will fight,

Until the battles all are done;

Until my days on earth are oíer;

Until my race has all been run.

 

Then I shall go to my long home,

To be forever with my Lord.

In that sweet day Iíll know true peace;

Iíll then remove my battle sword.
