A desert landscape view
Committed as Israel’s foe
Kill them, don’t let them go
Their idols had no strength
God’s hand moved
Moses conquered

Solomon rebuilt Arad’s strength
Built an altar, a high place of worship
His pagan wives knew
Arad was their place too
Baal, and RA and Asherim and others
This was mixed with a little bit of God
They said He was there

Solomon lost his way
The evil they would do
Offended all of Heaven
Broke God’s heart too
He loves obedience
They loved doing their thing

God is looking for a heart
That hungers after Him
One that is surrendered
The world isn’t its friend

The hand of God rules kindly
Always in truth
His patience once depleted
Man’s failure is viewed
