Judgment Day

Roads are crumbling, bridges falling,
ground shaking, sinkholes yawning,
waters rising, Jakarta drowning,
superstorms roaring, forests burning,
bee colonies collapsing, oil spilling,
plagues spreading, species winking
out of existence, and I have to tell you,
it makes me uneasy. If I didn't know
it was all part of His plan, I might worry
about the mess we're making of His place.
But thanks to the power
of the vote and the power of prayer,
we have His people in charge, making
things ready for His return,
when all will be judged according to their works.
