Will You Then Understand

If God takes the rod from your hand
     and casts it to the ground as a snake,
Will you reach out and take it by the tail,
     trusting it won't coil back and bite?

If God takes your perfectly healthy hand
     and on your heart turns it deadly white,
Will you then so entrust it back to Him,
     trusting it will come back alright?

And if you don't, will you then understand
     when God takes water from the river
And to blood it turns when poured on land
     ...your judgement is at hand?

Exodus 4:1-17
