Out Of Bondage - Poem by Bob Gotti

Delivered out of many years of bondage and given a brand new start,
All they had to do was follow Moses and trust God's unchanging heart.

From the bondage through Moses lead they were given complete relief,
But some never saw The Land because of hardened hearts of unbelief.

Forgetting that Moses was on Sinai speaking to God on their behalf,
The Israelites complained they had no God so Aaron made a gold calf.

Angered by their faithlessness God wanted to destroy them that day,
But Moses pleaded for the people and God allowed a remnant to stay.

The people continued to complain to Moses almost every single day,
So God wouldn't stay with them for fear He'd destroy them on the way.

When being lead along the Red Sea many simply complained and cried,
So The Lord sent venomous snakes among them and many of them died,

But when the people went to Moses and acknowledged that they sinned,
He put a snake on a pole and all who looked to the snake would live.

Their rebellion had angered God so much when they surveyed the land,
That most of Israel was judged by His Mighty Righteous Uplifted Hand.

For 40 years they wandered in the desert because of their wicked sin,
And only those under the age of 20 with Joshua and Caleb entered in.

Will you friend stay on the straight path that God allowed to start?
Or will you have your journey shortened by a sinful rebellious heart?
