Let God count the ballots: a poetic take on the Election pandemic

It is as it is to be
In the hands of GOD the king heart be
My celebration is not as men revelling
Give praise to GOD who ordains who win
No man and nothing can change it
No court house can overturn it
Theirs is a losing battle

Surely they know but refuse to admit
GOD no man can resist
Not on its own it happened
GOD ordained and it happened
But there will always be those who cast doubt
Always be some to spread rumors
Many they be that persist to resist

Del dicho al hecho hay mucho trecho
Do not get lost within mijo
All their words will amount to nothing
They will accept their loss and our win
How difficult it is to sail against the wind
Sunrise cannot be seen in the evening
But the sun sets and red clouds prevail.
