My heart is in gloom...I feel total despair.
Look at us Christians...Look if you dare!
So far we've sat in luxury and ease.
WE do all that we plan and all that WE please!
We think when we get self-gratification or praise,
"Now that's confirmation! We should be at this place."
And if it "stirs up OUR joy", or OUR wanting to do,
We'll swear by Your name, "This calling's from You!"
When I feel really convicted, or fear falls on me,
I'll quote a scripture that says I'm redeemed!
I see we're all pretty good with the Word,
We pick and We choose what we think we deserve!
Oh Lord! Today I call out to YOU.
A call from my heart of "what should I do?"
"Start over, go back to my first love You say?"
"When I truly loved You, go back to that day?"
Now I see a plum line and it's laid next to me.
I see that I'm twisted and crooked, and not really free.
I'll take one day at a time and one step toward You.
I've got to remember You see all that I do.
You look past my appearance and right to my heart.
You see the real me; and that I'm not really smart.
Yes, I remember the days when it was just us two.
Though I lived in this world I focused on You.
Now my "CRY" is kill ME and resurrect YOU,
in my heart, in my life;...in everything I do!
