Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

The Composed Song

1. God is not slack in keeping

Even his promises

Though some have been thinking that

He is a sluggish God

God however is patient

With everyone on earth

For he is not willing that

Anyone should perish


2. God is not slack in keeping

Even his promises

But he wants you to be mindful

Even of the written words

Know ye that in the last days

Scoffers shall even come

Walking after their own lusts

Uttering untoward things


3. God is not slack in keeping

Even his promises

Therefore he calls all men on earth

Even to repentance

Listen not to people saying

Where is promise of his coming

That things have continued as

They wert from beginning


4. God is not slack in keeping

Even his promises

And be thou not ignorant

Of this one thing with him

That one day even with God

Is like a thousand years

And even a thousand years

Is also like a day


5. God is not slack in keeping

Even his promises

Examine thou even thyself

Whether thou be in faith

Because the day of the Lord

Will come as a thief at night

In which heavens shall pass away

Even with a great noise


6. God is not slack in keeping

Even his promises

Therefore even my brethren

Draw closer ‘ven to God

Strive to live ‘ven Holy life

Even in all your ways

Looking forward to the day

That the Lord will appear
