words and music by Greg Scheer
text based on Psalm 52
1. Why do you boast, you haughty one, as if you were secure?
You trust your tongue to cut down those whose hope in God is sure.
Your love of lies has served you well, but will your confidence endure?
2. For God will rise and you will fall– your fleeting riches gone.
Plucked up like weeds and whithering, your life will come to naught.
Your memory will tell the tale: eternal refuge can’t be bought.
3. But we will be like towering trees within the house of God.
Our faith secure, our refuge sure, in God’s unfailing love.
We will proclaim God’s holy name for all the good that God has done.
