Thy Justice Stands Demanded

Dear God, I seek assurance,
For I have come to see
That justice seldom comes to man
In this mortality.

I’ve witnessed villains prosper,
I’ve watched as angels died;
I’ve sought in prayer for things thought good
To find myself denied.

Thy will is most elusive
To one who seeks to know
Why, if Thou art just and true,
Unfairness reigns below.

How can it be that justice
Could stand apart, alone;
The one thing in Thy kingdom
Unbalanced on it’s own?

In chemistry, astronomy,
And biology we find
Every action countered by
Some plan Thy hand designed.

Velocity and gravity
Combine to balance out
The orbits of the planets
Defined in perfect route.

From galaxies to microbes
We see the Master’s hand
That levels every scale that’s hung;
Why not the deeds of man?

Thy judgement stands demanded
By tears of the oppressed,
By laughter from the wicked
Who mock the hands that bless.

Consistent with Thy pattern,
A judgement day MUST come;
When all mankind will reckon with
The good and bad they’ve done.

And so life’s lack of fairness,
That spurs religious doubt,
Is only proof we’ll live again,
For all must balance out.
