To say that I do love you would be a lie to tell,
Because, though, I claim it, I do not obey your words,
I sing about them everyday, I pray about them every time,
But, you and I know that, my heart is full of shame.
Though, men see me all white through, you spot the stains from afar,
You know how many they are, like the sand of the sea shore,
But I want to be a right man, to follow in your way,
To give up all my sins now, and walk with you alone,
I want to change, tonight!
I want to start over again, the friendship I had, with you, my God,
To revoke the curse of leaving, behind the way of light,
To start over again, my life with you before
To think of being in your home, will be the greatest lie I told,
Because, you and I know, that my lamp is almost out,
The flames are but a withering flower; the coals are but a fleeing storm,
But, you and I know, that my soul cannot go down.
Though men find me so lovely, you know what lies in me,
A fading picture of my life, waiting to be shown,
But,I want to be a right man, to follow in your way,
To give up all my sins now, and walk with you alone
Teach me how to follow, all the things you say,
Guide me through your chosen way; prepare me for your throne,
Take from me all evil things, that could make me sway,
Mount me in you, so I stand forevermore.
Awake in me a sense of fear, for the things you say,
Lessen all my burden God, so I pass the test,
Renew my body and my soul that I may be new,
Lengthen my life, for another day with you.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
