Before My Birth

Known, consecrated and appointed all before my birth, 

to be a prophet to all nations resident on earth.

I tried to wiggle out of it, and later on to crawl, 

but God commanded me to go and prophesy to all.


I’m not to fear, ‘cause God is here to rescue me from death. 

The things I say you’ve got to take, the praises and the threats.

I’m over nations, over kings, to pluck up and pull down. 

So don’t be coy or I’ll destroy your countryside and towns.
