In The Darkness . . . To The Light


IN THE DARKNESS . . . TO THE LIGHT

God, Where Am I Going If I Don’t Need YOU?
And When Am I Going to Seek What Is True?
Why Do I Long to Just Satisfy Flesh?
And Choose to Ignore That the Penalty’s Death?

Who Do I Really Think That I Am?
That I Have Ascended My Throne Past THE LAMB?
I Choose When to Call HIM . . . When I Have A Need
And All of The Time Causing HIS Heart to Bleed.

HIS Love Is Forever . . . But So Are HIS Laws
I Must Face Who I Am and Admit Grievous Flaws
You Laugh: “That’s the Old Days! The Law’s Passed Away!”
But Not If THE LORD’s Not Your Savior Today
You Say You Have Grace So It’s Cool You Deride
Grace Is for Service . . .Not So Sinners Can Slide!

What Makes Me Think I Can Live Life A Loner?
It’s GOD’s Air I Breathe – It’s HIS World. HE’s the Owner!

So, Who Am I Kidding When I Live Like This?
No Better Than Judas’s Traitorous Kiss
I Can’t Say I Love HIM and Live Life in Sin
I Can’t Stay A Loser and Think I Can Win.

It’s Time That I Face the One in The Mirror
And Look in My Eyes and See My Soul Clearer
For I Was Created for GOD’s Own Good Pleasure
Since When Do I Think in Myself, I’m A Treasure?

Eternity’s Not Just A Series of Years
It’s Forever and Ever in Joy or In Tears
If I Don’t Repent and Turn from My Own Pride
HE’ll Pass on The Judgment That I Did Decide.

This Life Will Be Over in Less Than A Blink
So, It’s Time That I Tell Self the Truth and To Think
That If I’m So Sure That I’m Doing So Well
Is Eternity Fine. . . If I Spend It in Hell?

Heaven’s Forever . . . And Hell’s Dungeon Too
Heaven’s the Place . . . GOD Created for You
Hell Is the Pit Where the Wicked Will Be
It’s Time You Get Real . . . Let the Truth Set You Free.
Not One of Us Knows When We’ll Breathe Our Last Sigh
To Live? To KNOW JESUS. NO JESUS? To Die.
