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 won’t fight them; they won’t fight us;
We will have rest and dwell in peace.
Yet, Lord, you say that’s not the truth;
Our trials now will never cease.
Because we failed to drive them out,
Forevermore they’ll 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 I’ll join the fight afresh.
With grit and mud; with sweat and blood;
With heart and mind; with toil and prayer;
I’ll show myself to be a man;
I’ll 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 o’er;
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 I’ll know true peace;
I’ll then remove my battle sword.
