Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
Matthew 10:16 KJV
The wolves won’t hesitate to eat you up,
For you’re the Shepherd’s sheep sent forth to save.
They hate the One who drank the bitter cup
And now He lives within you strong and brave.
The children of the night now circle ’round
And wait for you to stumble in their midst.
Be wise, therefore, as serpents to confound,
And keep the mind of Christ when they persist.
You cannot last a moment on your own;
Depend upon the Savior all the time.
Be harmless, then, as doves – you’re not alone;
No matter what they do remain sublime.
With cunning Jesus rose above the hate.
In innocence He set the record straight.
