The Lord is asking

Is it stop
Or is it go?

Is it yes
Or is it no?

Is it death
Or is it life?

Is it peace
Or is it strife?

Is it moving as one
Or is it falling apart?

Is it warmth of the Spirit
Or is it hardness of heart?

Is it zeal for the Kingdom
Or is it drift and decay?

Is it the gloom of the night
Or God’s glorious new day?

Is it muting the trumpet
Or wielding the sword?

Is it forward
Or back?

Is it defence
Or attack?

Is it moving
Or staying?

Is it striving
Or being?

Is it watching
Or seeing?

Is it fluttering
Or flying?

Is it living
Or dying?

Is it a temple
Or a tent?

Is it in ownership
Or rent?

Is it here
Or is it there?

And if not here
Where oh where?

Is it now
Or is it then?

And if not now
When oh when?
