THE WORDS OF THE PREACHER

Behold the words of the preacher!
See as it goes down the drain
He shouts “honour thy father and mother”
Those shouts have gone out in vain.

Behold the words of the preacher!
Sharper than any two-edged sword
Is any creature hidden from the maker?
Are our actions hidden from the Lord?

Behold the words of the preacher!
As powerful as the mighty wind, yet
Rendered powerless by the hearer,
That seems to have forgotten the hour of death.

Behold the words of the preacher!
It calleth upon you – the hour is near!
Behold in the drain the words of the great teacher –
Standing to judge you for the hour is near.
