Losing Our Way

July 14th, 2010

I’ve given my life to the One and am following his ways,
I’ve made a promise to serve him all of my days.
I’m convinced nothing can take me off of his track;
No commandment is so tough it’ll break my back.

No price is so big that I will not pay,
And every day I’ll read the Bible and pray.
Yet somewhere in between Heaven and Earth,
A selfish nature has made its birth.

Somehow I’ve found the line that I won’t cross;
I’ve discovered a ransom which saves an Earthly loss.
How did I ever let myself slip away?
At what stage did I lose sight of his perfect way?

How do I get back on the straight and narrow track?
Am I really willing to pay the slack?
Will my friends still be there if I re-claim my beliefs?
Or will knowingly carrying on in sin give me more relief?

I’ve made up my mind; there was no need for hesitation.
I’ll tell my friends with affirmation,
My relationship with God is worth far more,
Than their worldly ways which are relatively poor.

I don’t understand why I’m still taken back by He,
For I deserve to be burnt with justice’s heat.
But I guess that’s why he is God and I remain a blessed sinner,
And the distance between here and Heaven is getting thinner.
