GOD IS GOOD; BUT SOMETIMES I WONDER
By Ken Blue
(Read Psa. 73)
“God is good to all who walk upright”, but this truth was not confirmed in my sight.
The wicked prosper; their strength is firm; while the righteous suffer lives infirmed.
They have no fear of the judgment time; pride adorns them, while mocking the Divine.
“There is no knowledge in the most High”, boast the rich, ill prepared to die.
“Is God really good?” a voice asks of me; have I cleansed my hands in vanity?
I’m plagued every day, morning till night; still they prosper, while not doing right.
I turned to God and the Bible in prayer; He opened my eyes, the truth was there.
Judgment awaits their wicked schemes; and earthly pursuits are only a dream.
He was always with me, holding my hand; guiding by grace, wherein I now stand.
None in heaven or earth I desire; await Your call to come up higher.
God is good! There’s no mystery now, my affections were misplaced, and here is how.
I envied the rich and their ease of life; and brooded through my days of strife.
God is indeed good! Let us draw nigh; reading His Word and His name glorify.
God is good to the just and unjust; walking by faith, His wisdom I’ll trust.
The first shall be last in earthly quest; all will vanish in their moment of death.
God is good, there’s no wondering now; He works His plan, His Word explains how.
