The Earth is the Lord’s

Read Time: 1 minute

For centuries men, in their blindness
Have fought for war’s doubtful rewards;
Have wrested the land from their neighbors
And known not “The Earth is the Lord’s.”

They’ve sought, with their might and their cunning
To triumph again and again;
Like Nebuchadnezzar, not knowing
That God rules in the kingdoms of men.

The rulers of earth are like puppets
Controlled by the hand from on high.
Who work out God’s plan, and His purpose,
Unchanged, as the centuries fly.

It is good, in the midst of the turmoil
Amid unrest of the Earth’s weary hordes,
To know that the MOST HIGH is ruling
And truly, the “Earth is the Lord’s.


Marguerite C. Curry
Christadelphian Herald of the Kingdom

Suggested Readings
The vision in Revelation 21 is something we all look forward to, the time when there will be “a new heaven and a new earth” (v1) and when God “will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” (v4).
