What should I write, O LORD GOD most high
I believe your second coming is drawing nigh
I am waiting with the pen of a ready writer
To write words to make someone's day brighter

It is useless to write unless inspired by you
The words you give are wise and true
I read in the Bible these words by your son
He said it is finished, thy will be done

The words that come from you will stand
In Daniel came forth fingers of a man's hand
The king saw the part of the hand that wrote
The words scared him so, his knees did smote

Belshazzar's kingdom was coming to an end
This was the written message that you did send
His pride and greed caused his quick downfall
Your handwriting was clear on the palace wall

The scales of justice were balanced on that day
Belshazzar ignored God and did not pray
He thought that he was king on his own
And that God did not put him on the throne

Promotion comes not from the east or the west
But God is the judge, he knows what is best
He gives understanding and wisdom to the wise
Causes kings and kingdoms to fall and to rise

Trust in the LORD with all of your heart
Keep his commands and do your part
Be humble and know that God is in control
He owns your life, your breath and your soul
