Who’s on the Lord’s side?

Tomorrow, in SC, is primary day for voting. I am usually quite silent on these issues. However, I cannot stand by and see the Trump take this state… He is not a good man, and a TERRIBLE candidate to represent the “conservative” side of the nation. 
I am one that typically places little, to no, faith in the “power” of political figures. My hymn today reflects Who’s side we should be on. The Republicans are inundated with “Christian” options for the ticket. Let me be clear that we are not a Christian nation – and I’m glad of it. We shouldn’t be. That said, I want to see a candidate take office that reflects the values and holds dear the truths that Scripture preach. We shouldn’t enact laws that enforce our religion – again, we are not a Christian country – but at the same time holding those truths (and they ARE truths whether you hold them or not) should not be damnable in this country. 
So, read this hymn brothers and sisters, and when you go into vote in the primaries tomorrow remember that, ultimately, we must be on God’s side. We ultimately need to trust Him in our lives. Amen?
#hymnsforHim
1. Who is on the Lords side? 

Who will serve the King? 

Who will be His helpers, 

other lives to bring? 

Who will leave the worlds side? 

Who will face the foe? 

Who is on the Lords side? 

Who for Him will go? 

By Thy call of mercy, 

by Thy grace divine, 

We are on the Lords side 

Savior, we are Thine!
2. Not for weight of glory, 

not for crown and palm, 

Enter we the army, 

raise the warrior psalm; 

But for love that claimeth lives 

for whom He died: 

He whom Jesus nameth 

must be on His side. 

By Thy call of mercy, 

by Thy grace divine, 

We are on the Lords side 

Savior, we are Thine!
3. Jesus, Thou hast bought us, 

not with gold or gem, 

But with Thine own life blood, 

for Thy diadem; 

With Thy blessing filling each 

who comes to Thee, 

Thou hast made us willing, 

Thou hast made us free. 

By Thy grand redemption, 

by Thy grace divine, 

We are on the Lords side 

Savior, we are Thine!
4. Fierce may be the conflict, 

strong may be the foe, 

But the Kings own army 

none can overthrow; 

Round His standard ranging, 

victory is secure, 

For His truth unchanging 

makes the triumph sure. 

Joyfully enlisting 

by Thy grace divine, 

We are on the Lords side 

Savior, we are Thine!
5. Who will stand for justice 

in a time of need 

Who will hear the poor man 

and his children plead 

Who will heal the rich man 

of his poverty 

Who will tell the homeless 

of eternity 

By Your love and mercy, 

and Your grace divine 

We are on the Lord’s side 

We are on the Lords side 

Savior, we are Thine!
