They do not want what could be

They do not despair of what is lost;

Their god would not save you or me

He counts the wages, he counts the cost;

In the balance he tips the scales,

One to the left one to the right;

What is it to him who passes or fails

He will not have day without the night.

But this is not the God who has the Son,

Who came for all who fell in Adam;

The Father leaves not His work undone,

His Spirit perfects what they will not fathom.

They could not believe that He was good

Because they only looked from where they stood.
