Attorney Glen Kotten, Who Founded Our NT Greek Class,
Composed a Song

 Attorney Glen Kotten, left, composed the song below.His law firm is in Sleepy Eye, Minnesota, a town named
after an Indian chief with strabismus.
The Parker clan (my mother's kin) were known for strabismus,
which I had as a child.



The Just Shall Live By Faith – 
By Glen A. Kotten

The Bishop Ichabod is guarding Zion with written polemics
‘Cause the wolves are hungry with gimmicks and tricks
Drunk on Babylon wine in their minds and right hand
Forgiveness without faith their antichristian stand
They're scattering the flocks, slaughtering the sheep
False prophets Lord, cast them into the deep

(Refrain)
Lo I saw an angel fly in the midst of heaven
With the everlasting gospel to preach
Justified by faith alone, one baptism for the remission of sins
Thy Word is a lamp to thy feet
The righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith;
The just man shall live by faith

Hopelessly apostate, no parish work done by the slug
Money money money, Thrivent pyramid scheme grub
The church is a business says, growth wolf chicanery
Festival charades of reformation mockery
The holy martyrs Huss and Tyndale burnt at the stake
Translated God’s Word for the righteous sheep’s sake

Refrain X2
