“she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat.”
Doesn't it make your spirit blue?
When you realize,
“God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”
Doesn't it make your insides grieve?
When you grasp,
“the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked.”
Doesn’t it make your heart so sad?
When you understand,
“God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.
Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”
Doesn’t it make your soul lament?
When you recognize that,
“ye walk every one after the imagination of his evil heart.”
Doesn‘t it make your life distressed?
When you consider,
“the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart.”
Doesn’t it make your essence weep?
When you take into account that,
“from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness.”
Doesn’t it make your days distraught?
“Our backslidings are many, we have sinned against thee.”
When you comprehend that,
“God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
And “Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Doesn’t that make your spirit feel better?
Doesn’t that cause the blue to disappear?
