You will remember that in David's day
The Ark of God they took
But placed it on a New Cart
And not according to God's Book ?
When they came to Na-chon's threshing floor
In error Uz-zah did reach
As the Ark began to topple
Upon him God made a breach.
Now, King David was displeased
And afraid of the Lord;
But soon he came to understand -
They had disobeyed God's Word.
So to the priests of Levi
King David this did say,
'You obeyed not God's due order
but did things your own way'

Now, by some sections of the Church
A New Cart has been made,
Where the Lord must dance their tune
In this, I am dismayed.
'Now Lord WE release you
And toss you to and fro;
God, you better do it
For we are the boss you know'

This New Cart the Church does drive
A new Ark they've made too;
The registration caption is
'God do what WE tell you!!'

This warning I now give
You must burn all your New Carts
Or God wil make another breach
Please, let Jesus touch your hearts !

1 Chronicles 13:1-11; 15:1-13
