 And Will You Murmur? by Thomas Brooks

And Will You Murmur? by Thomas Brooks (1608-1680)

Is not Christ your treasure? Is not heaven your inheritance, and will you murmur?
Have you not much in hand, and more in hope? Have you not much in possession, but much more reserved in heaven, and will you murmur?

Has not God given you…
- a changed heart,
- a renewed nature, and
- a sanctified soul
—and will you murmur?

Has He not given you…
- Himself to satisfy you,
- His Son to save you,
- His Spirit to lead you,
- His grace to adorn you,
- His covenant to assure you,
- His mercy to pardon you,
- His righteousness to clothe you
—and will you murmur?

Has He not made you…
- a friend,
- a son,
- a brother,
- a bride,
- an heir
—and will you murmur?

Has not God often turned…
- your water into wine,
- your brass into silver, and
- your silver into gold
—and will you murmur?

When you were dead, did not He quicken you?
When you were lost, did not He seek you?
When you were wounded, did not He heal you?
When you were falling, did not He support you?
When you were down, did not He raise you?
When you were staggering, did not He establish you?
When you were erring, did not He correct you?
When you were tempted, did not He support you? and
When you went in dangers, did not He deliver you?
—and will you murmur?
What! You who are so highly advanced and exalted above many thousands in the world?

Murmuring suits none so badly as saints.

MUR'MUR, v.i. [L. murmuro.] from Webster's 1828 dictionary

1. To make a low continued noise, like the hum of bees, a stream of water, rolling waves, or like the wind in a forest; as the murmuring surge.
The forests murmur and the surges roar.
2. To grumble; to complain; to utter complaints in a low,half articulated voice; to utter sullen discontent; with at, before the thing which is the cause of discontent; as, murmur not at sickness; or with at or against, before the active agent which produces the evil.

 Re:

Oh that the world around us
Those who will die the death
Might know the Lord of mercy
And recognize His voice.

Then they would not murmur
Against things they cannot see
And would joyfilled see His hand at work
And Glorify His name.

Why would you die? The Lord is asking
His hand stretched out in love
I set the world to spin for you
I call you from Above.

The work is Great to save their souls
It cannot be done with man
For though they die and fade away
It's He alone who can.

I hear You Lord in a fallen leaf
I see your love in rain
I'm here to bid them turn from sin
And Glorify Your Name.
