You must make every effort,
Not allowing yourself to revert;
With backsliding into those days,
Of going through your wayward ways.
For you enter that place of rest,
After a week doing your best;
Then no one will be ever lost,
Following how Christ paid the cost.
You cannot refuse to obey,
Throughout each and every day;
Living and breathing in the Word,
Everything that you have heard.
The Word of God is still living,
Still active and always forgiving;
But sharper than a two-edge sword,
Being upheld by our Lord.
It will cut deep into your soul,
Where your spirit meets to extol;
Whatever you have put your trust,
That you continuously lust.
The place where joints and marrow meet,
All of your bones from head to feet;
For God judges your inner thought,
All intentions that you have sought.
No creature can hide from the Lord,
And God never can be ignored;
For the declaration you hold,
Is priceless faith worth more than gold.
