This song has been running through my head during the last few days. It seemed like it would make a timely post, as the general American public loses confidence in “the idols of an age.”
No Confidence
by Twila Paris
The Lord does not delight in human reckoning.
He offers us the wisdom of His Spirit.
The idols of an age are falling all around,
but we are told to stand and not to fear it.
We find our strength in Him alone.
We have no greatness of our own.
We put no confidence in the flesh.
We will trust in the Lord in our God (2x)
And we will shine like the stars.
We will shine like the stars in a darkened world.
We turn away from hoping in chariot and horse.
We come aside to listen and to wait.
The One who brought us here will speak and lead us on.
Go forward on abundant, simple faith.

We find our strength in Him alone.
We have no greatness of our own.
We put no confidence in the flesh.
We will trust in the Lord in our God (2x)

And we will shine like the stars.
We will shine like the stars in a darkened world.
