Poetry: Trust Displaced

by J. Randal Matheny © 2013

Proverbs 29.26

Many seek a ruler’s face,
And plead his help for justice’ cause;
To find a verdict for a righteous case,
Seek out the Lord with perfect laws.

Trust in man is trust displaced,
For power corrupts in human hands;
No prayer of saints is ever erased
By God who rules angelic bands.
