Surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses,
Discard all obstacles that are weaknesses;
Sin so easily entangles as a web we weave,
Not even realizing just how it will deceive;
Be patient through life as we run this race,
Till we hit the finish line see Jesus' face;
For He's the author to faith suffering loss,
As the plan was set in enduring the cross;
Despising the shame as was vividly shown,
Now sits at the right hand of God's throne;
Consider Him enduring such contradiction,
Giving those sinners a chance at salvation.
Such a chaotic society that we're living in,
Every direction you turn is filled with sin;
It distorts our perception robbing vitality,
As it slowly changes our sense of morality,
It is baffling of the direction of mankind,
Being wearied and faint within your mind;
We must let go of our sin that we cling to,
Then committing in wheresoever pursue.
