Foolishly Looking Back

Exodus 14:12,13,15; 15:1,2
Don’t look behind through tinted glass,
and paint untruthful rosiness;
don’t look ahead in fear, and fret,
– God’s power and love you thus forget.

Don’t moan and groan, be quiet and wait,
stand firm
and let your words abate.
Look up
and think about the LORD,
and see what help he can afford.

Move on as he directs, but do
not fear the things unknown to you.
A life of faith must always lean
upon the LORD whose grace we’ve seen.

And so then sing up to the LORD,
all you who’ve known his gracious Word,
and tasted his redemptive grace,
salvation, help and warm embrace.
