Submission to Authority

Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work. Titus 3:1

Lord, thou has bid thy people pray
For all that bear the sovereign sway,
Who as thy servants reign;

Rulers, and governors, and powers--
Behold, in faith we pray for ours;
Nor let us plead in vain.
