What Does It Look Like?

Some try to push Christians out of the public square.  That won’t be done.

What Does It Look Like?
by Michael Romani

What does it look in this crumbled society
To find that Christians have imputed notoriety
Confronted by a kingdom fill with much error
A bringer of much carnage and living terror

Do what you will in the midst of stammering
I am fully disclosing the truth of the hammering
Like Daniel walked into the oven's fire
I choose to live by what goodness and God inspire

The God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob ascends
Reigning over a world from ends to ends
Giving the best in everything that we can be
Living by the guidance of truth Divinity

We refuse steadfastly to cringe and bow down
Just as in the past we know who has the true crown
Focused on the good that can be done in the Empire
Living and doing the will of the living God who inspires

Drawing the line in it's last point of re-education
We stand fast in the deepest roots of our dedication
Resolved into the focus that we'll not be defiled
And to our truest principles we are reconciled

The world around us wants to tell us not to quietly pray
Telling us what to think and do and even what to say
I for one will do exactly as my faith teaches and shows me
Always true, even if separated from the norm of society

I have not given up on walking society back from the brink
In total and utter dependence on my Lord for what I think
I put this into the every bit of how I act and try to talk
Though sometimes imperfect I will stay on this walk

Called out and separated as the Church of God's family
Proving our best service in deeds not in printed homily
We who belong to God are born to live out our best praise
And by our example to society, hopeful the tides will raise
