Throne to Throne

Moses was afraid to speak
Afraid to face his foe
But with God’s strength, he sought the king
And cried, “Let God’s people go!”
Aaron threw his staff upon the ground
And it became a snake
Pharaoh refused to believe the sign
And thus sealed his own fate

Chorus:
Because, Pharaoh wouldn’t listen
His heart was hard as stone
God had to teach that king a lesson
A lesson, from Throne to throne

The river Nile was turned to blood
Frogs plagued the countryside
Egypt’s dust evolved to gnats
Flies swarmed from far and wide
Their livestock was no longer live
Boils broke on beast and man
Hail, locusts, and darkness came
From God’s almighty hand

Chorus:
Because, Pharaoh wouldn’t listen
His heart was hard as stone
God had to teach that king a lesson
A lesson, from Throne to throne

Finally, one plague remained
Moses spoke out for the Lord,
“At midnight, your firstborn son will die.
Consider yourself warned!”

Which throne had the power?
Which throne would overtake?
Which throne lost a son forever?
Which throne made the mistake?

God is all-powerful!
Our God would overtake!
Pharaoh lost a son forever!
He made a big mistake!

Chorus:
Because, Pharaoh wouldn’t listen
His heart was hard as stone
God had to teach that king a lesson
A lesson, from Throne to throne

The message of this rap is one
That you had better hear
Christ is King and He will reign
His Word has made it clear
But like Pharaoh, are you stubborn
And for what, your earthly pride?
To love the Lord and obey His Word
Will bring you home to the other side

So people, will you listen
Or will your heart be hard as stone?
God gave us His Word and He taught us a lesson
A lesson, from Home to home!

About Arrow

Hi and welcome! My pen name is Arrow. The word “arrow” intrigues me because it has two meanings that describe my passions. One, it is an instrument used offensively to reach a target, and two, it shows the way. As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, my goals are to live for Him, lead others to Him, and glorify the Heavenly Father. I pray that the stories, poems/song lyrics, and devotional thoughts I share on this website may always be inspired by the Holy Spirit and aligned with the truths found in God’s Word. My hope is that the words may penetrate your heart and point the way to a closer relationship with the Savior. I look forward to sharing my journey with you. Experiencing what God has in store is bound to be exciting! May you be blessed! ~ Arrow
