His Name In Vain - Poem by Bob Gotti
There is no God, some insist, and live as though He does not exist,
They live daily in opposition to, The God embraced by me and you;
Changing His Name to nature’s mother, denying Him to one another,
Yet, His Name is heard everywhere, from men who truly do not care.
The use of The Lord’s Name in vain, especially when one is profane,
Is not simply disgraceful my friend, but contributes to a chilling end,
For a soul will not be found guiltless, for such a dark, irreverent use,
Of the One Name, above all names, for this is what the Bible claims!
Could a soul even know The Lord, if this Commandment is ignored?
Could one’s lack of Godly reverence, come from simple ignorance?
And if one knows Christ personally, will he use His Name flippantly?
Or do men simply have no fear, of The Lord, Who we hold so dear?
This fear was once commonplace, even in men who knew not Grace,
When there was a fear deep inside, and God above, was not denied,
Even if that person did not believe, a silent respect, God did receive,
Now, He’s blasphemed and worse, His Name is used just as a curse.
God is seldom lifted up, in praise, in these spiritually darkened days,
“Oh my God”, you will hear today, but, who is their god, to you I say!
All who do not believe right now, shall on their knees, someday bow,
As every tongue will surely confess, that Christ is God to all the rest!
