8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
Psalm 37:8-9 KJV
When someone does you wrong it’s natural
To let your anger get the best of you,
But wrath will be your wisdom’s funeral
And then the worst of you will soon break through.
Yet you’re no slave to sin: the old man died; 1
He’s crucified with Christ when you are saved.
If you’ve been wronged let Spirit be your guide;
Just wait upon the Lord; let hate be waived.
When evil’s done to you first turn to prayer;
The patient love of Jesus will descend.
When you are meek the new earth’s yours to bear. 2
God cuts off evildoers in the end.
Serenity belongs to those who wait;
In Christ there is no room for those who hate.
