Who is the man so wise that he can understand this? To whom has the mouth of the LORD spoken, that he may declare it? Why is the land ruined and laid waste like a wilderness, so that no one passes through?
Jeremiah 9:12

The emptiness of lies
the broken smoldering remains
of what once was nice
beauty gone in the decay

That is the entropy stain
sin brings to a land
and no reasoning human brain
will fully understand

Ruin follows in sin's path
as surely as night to day
there is no escaping holy wrath
when we have gone our own way

That's why a savior came
so long ago to bear our sin
we have redemption in His name
a path of life to enter in

He Who makes all things new again
will change burned landscapes to bright
and with Hime we praise and sing "Amen"
He turns all our darkness into light
