Who Will Hear Us Then?

If we sin against man to man
A barrister will plead our case
But oh, if we sin against God
And scorn redemption’s saving grace
Then who will for our good entreat?
Or save us from Death’s judgement seat

If we, without care for God’s Word
That He preserves from age to age
So that by Him, man’s hearts are stirred
If we dare to ignore its page
This love-letter from God to us
How dare we die… without Jesus?

If we choose ignorance, what then?
If we reject the cross, blood-stained
And He who gave His Life thereon
So that Death’s hell could be contained
Oh, tell me, who will plead our cause
Or intercede, without Jesus?

 If someone sins against a man, God will mediate for him, but if someone sins against the LORD, who can intercede for him?” 1 Sam.2:25
