The Watchtower

Multitudes upon multitudes,
Clap their hands and dance and sing
Entertainment is the name of the game,
A deceptive spirit has been sent,
Among the congregation.
If you have seen it,
Clasp your hand over your mouth,
And do not follow.

Multitudes upon multitudes,
Their ears are tickled,
Their hearts deceived.
Whitewash the sin and call it something else,
Cover it with platitudes,
And tell them they are blessed.

“Shepherds of my people, my children, repent.”
For the Lord sees your hearts,
Hungry for gain.
“Build the church,” you say.
Yet count the congregation and your tithes,
Erecting whitewashed buildings,
With no light there.

You have lost your first love,
And pride has crept in.
You say in your heart,
“Look and see at all that I have done,
I am blessed.”

But you do not know,
Your steps are ordered &
demons lead my children astray.
Call them to repent,
And do not whitewash the sin.

Know this,
On the day of judgement,
You too will be judged,
As shepherds of the flock,
Accountable for each child lost.

Go up, go up,
Bow down before the Lord,
Clap your hand over your mouth,
If you have slandered your neighbour,
Or gossiped in the street,
Bow down and repent.

Go up, go up,
Bow down before the Lord,
And go before those you have cheated,
Ask if they will forgive you,
And measure out the scales of justice,
and compassion,
Bow down and repent before the Lord.

Go up, go up,
Bow down before the Lord,
If you harbour wickedness and hate in your heart,
Pray for your enemies,
And cover your hate with love,
Bow down and repent before the Lord.

Go up, go up,
And humble yourself before the Lord,
Offer your thanksgiving and praise,
Only after you have repented,
Of the wickedness in your heart.
Speak what is right,
Seek justice, mercy and love,
Give to the poor,
Seek the Lord always.

Go up, go up,
And bow down before your God,
Who has great delight in you,
Bow down and offer your thanksgiving and praise,
And He will grant you His salvation.
For you will be called by name, a child of God,

He will look upon you,
And have great delight.
To serve Him is to serve those around you,
In humility, justice, honest scales and love.
Then your Lord and God will bless you,

Bring your heart and not your lips,
Bring your praise and thanksgiving,
With a clean heart,
And bring your tithes as a sign,
Of the great love, blessing and forgiveness,
That the Lord has shown you.
