Slipping Away Into Silence

Some souls are considered foolish; some may be just a bit unwise,
As times become nearly ghoulish, all canít seem to open their eyes.
Accepting things that should not be, accepting with a wink and nod,
Having eyes that will not see, minds dismiss the wisdom from God.

Some seem asleep in The Body, men who say in God they believe,
And ignore things morally shoddy, to follow men who truly deceive.
Arenít we here to be Godís Light, in a world that is darker each day?
Instead of embracing whatís right, many appear to be going astray.

Today many of Godís Holy people, bought at an exceptional price,
Gathering weekly under a steeple, forgetting Godís Great Sacrifice.
Weíre here to be vessels for Christ, to hold up high all Godís Truth,
But, it seems like weíve been iced, frozen by fear of manís reproof.

Have we been silenced by those, leaders without God who are lost?
By the devil theyíve been chose, to become an enemy of the cross.
Which side are you on these days, on Christís side to be His voice?
Or working for manís empty praise, as in darkness he does rejoice?

The time may be slipping away, to be that voice for Christ our Lord,
It would be grand if we could say, all together in one strong accord,
That The Lord above changes not, and Heís coming back my friend,
And God has cast the enemyís lot, and Judgment shall be their end.

He's coming very soon, the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, weíll be otta here!
Waiting in Him with Great Expectation,  Bob Gott

You have written a wonderful poem, reflecting deep beliefs that definitely inspire me to be more passionate about my own faith.
Thankyou.
