(Henry Law, "Psalms")

"Let us break their chains," they cry, "and
free ourselves from this slavery." Psalm 2:3

Self will rejects restraint.

Pride will not yield to rule.

Conceited reason lifts up defiant head.

The gentle scepter of Christ's kingdom;
His sweet, His light, His easy, and His
loving yoke; are hated as chains which
restrain, and cords which fetter.

When Jesus came, earth raised the cry,
"We will not have this man to reign over
us." It still resounds.

When will man learn that widest liberty
is true submission to the Gospel sway?

He is a free man whom the Son makes free.

He is a slave in whom unbridled lusts and passions rule.

But can proud man prevail?

Can he drive back the ocean's might with a feather?

Can he lift up his puny hand, and bid the sun conceal its rays?

Can he bind the hurricane with straws?

Can he lay mountains low, lift up the
valleys, and change the laws of nature?

Can he scale heaven and dethrone our God?

Such, doubtless, is his frantic will.

"Let us break their chains," they cry, "and
free ourselves from this slavery." Psalm 2:3

But give ear again!

"But the One who rules in heaven laughs.
The Lord scoffs at them. Then in anger He
rebukes them, terrifying them with His
fierce fury." Psalm 2:4-5

God may be silent long; but His patience
is not impunity. Reprieve brings not release.

When the appointed time comes, the
floodgates open and wrath overflows!

Who can conceive these terrors?

What must His displeasure be?

Who can endure when His anger issues forth?

What weeping! What wailing! What anguish!
What gnashing of teeth! When God arises to
execute due judgment on His foes!
