Psalm 2

A Poetic Transliteration

Why Do Nations Rage is a transliteration of Psalm 2. This Christian poem is a part of the series Christian Inspirational Poetry by David. It was written in June, 1999, to complement a sermon series called Summer in the Psalms, by Rev. Carl Heuss.

The ungodly are not so, but are like the chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 
Psalm 1:4-5, NKJV

Why Do Nations Rage
By David L. Croft

Why do nations rage
Peoples plot and rulers plea
There upon the stage
To dethrone the Trinity
Foaming in anger
Now they tear at the cords
Gnashing against Him
The Omnipotent Lord

Now their time awakes
As the Lord of heaven laughs
Hills and mountains quake
Floods and fire for the chaff
Yet I’ve anointed
Lord of glory and grace
Who visits from Zion
With His mercy or mace

To Him God has said,
“Now I have begotten Thee
Lord of live or dead
Lift Your voice and ask of Me
For all the nations
They shall be Your reward
To bind or break them
With Your winnowing sword.”

Rulers now be wise
Kings of all the nations flee
Wrath from paradise
Serve the Sovereign Majesty
Lest in His anger
You perish in your way
Blessèd are only
Those who trust and obey

© June 29, 1999 David L. Croft 

Truly God is sovereign, not only over the nations, but over individuals as well, as we are reminded in this glorious Psalm of praise. May we all remember to,

"Serve the Sovereign Majesty, Lest in His anger you perish in your way. Blessed are only those who trust and obey."
