Why do the nations rage?

NationsRage

from psalm 2

Why do the nations rage?
Why do they plot in vain?
Why do they come together?
What do they hope to gain?

Let us break their cords and bring division
So united they won’t stand
Then we’ll have all power and glory
As we rule over every land

He who sits upon the heavens
Laughs a hearty laugh
Yet His voice shall cause displeasure
Nations will feel His wrath
But those whose eyes are on Him
Rejoice with Him and Sing
For you know that out of Zion
Comes your Groom & King

So make yourselves ready
As Righteousness returns
Is He the only One
For Whom your heart yearns?
Make yourselves ready
Watch as the world turns
But before the Glory comes
The fire burns

The Father prophesies this decree
“You are My Son; You are from ME
Ask and I will give You
The nations as Your reward
Break them with an iron rod
Rule them by the sword
Dash them into pieces
Bring valleys high and mountains low
Oh kings and judges of the earth
What have you now to show?”

Kiss the Son lest He be angry
And you perish in the way
Burn up your worthless idols
Before the approaching Day
Serve the Lord with fear and trembling
Rejoice! Oh barren! Sing!
For fire comes before His Glory
And prophets before the King
His ministers are as flames of fire
Preparing the way for the King”
