but our souls we can always find–
they’re in God’s Heaven, safe and sound.
And the Holy Spirit comes to his aid
and overpowers the spirit
of Satan, who tries to make man afraid
of his own soul and not get near it!
It’s in prayer we reconnect and know
God’s will for us each day–
find out where He wants us to go,
and say what He would say.
But if we withhold the fat of the lamb–
whatever that may be–
we’re trying to cheat the Great I Am!
Only truth shall set us free!
He asked us what we’d give to Him
in exchange for our dear soul
and that must be our thoughts, our whim–
which Satan from us stole
on that first day we, like a fool,
questioned whether Heaven was best.
We then were sent to His footstool
to be put to the test.
Would we sit at the feet of the LORD
or would we continue to search
for something that has never adored
us–would we leave the church?
Once upon a time, my friend,
you were His servant, but you got hurled
to earth to test your will to the end
of the breath His grace unfurled.
And we all have to the end of it
to make the choice for Home–
or we can choose not to submit
to His will, and, homeless, roam,
until He wills His Son’s return
when spirits will be recalled
to stand judgment, to arise or burn
in oceans that will scald.
Why gamble on a losing bet?
Why not choose life right now!
The price is this: short-term regret–
give up your sacred cow.
