If God Should Go on Strike…

[192 words]

How good it is that God above
has never gone on strike,
Because He was not treated fair
in things He didn’t like.

If only once, He’d given up and
said, “That’s it. I’m through,
I’ve had enough of those on Earth
so this is what I’ll do:

I’ll give my orders to the sun,
cut off the heat supply!
And to the moon, give no more light,
and run the oceans dry.

Then to make things really tough
and put the pressure on,
Turn off all the vital oxygen
till every breath is gone!”

You know He would be justified
if fairness was the game,
For no one has been more abused
or met with more disdain

Than God, and yet He carries on,
supplying you and me
With all the favors of His grace,
and everything for free.

Men say they want a better deal,
and so on strike they go,
But what a deal we’ve given
God to whom all things we owe.

We don’t care whom we hurt
to gain the things we like;
But what a mess we’d all be in
if God should go on strike.
