Let the rocks cry out

Bloodshed follows bloodshed,
There’s no knowledge of God,
Swearing, stealing, and adultery,
No one faithful in love.

The law is forgotten,
And the truth is in doubt,
The Lord Jesus is rejected,
By the lost preacher’s mouth.

So let the rocks cry out,
And resolve to be firm,
To praise the God of Salvation,
‘Til the day He returns.

Bloodshed follows bloodshed,
For the cleansing of sin,
And there is no other Savior,
Who can rescue lost men.

And this God is faithful,
His promises endure,
He is certain as the sunrise,
And His coming is sure.

So let the rocks cry out,
And resolve to be firm,
To praise the God of Salvation,
‘Til the day He returns.

Behind the lines

As found in the book of Hosea, there is a pattern in the Old Testament of God’s people turning away and then coming back to Him because of His faithfulness to them.

The rocks referenced here have double meaning. Physical rocks (Luke 19:40) crying out, and Christians who are living stones being built up as a spiritual house because of Christ the Cornerstone (1 Peter 2:5).

If the children of God do not cry out in praise and stand firm on the Truth, let the (physical) rocks cry out in honor of Him.
