Do Not Follow

A Legion of them pleaded with the King:
"Do not us into judgment bring"
For they knew he held the key
That soon every subject would see
The destruction that would soon be theirs
As the day of reckoning their sin bares
They are in darkness now and forever
From spiritual enlightenment he did them sever

 They shudder at the mention of his Father's name
That in the end belong to HIM ALONE the fame
Still They seek to mislead the masses
Whose entropy toward the end He passes
Look not upon the shame of said Legion
Nor listen to His false reason...

 Jehovah is the God of Truth
Follow His path while yet in Youth
Strive to continue all through life
Escape the demons path to strife!
Glorify the God above...
Worship him with heartfelt love...
