Self Inspection

 

Is your sleep blessed with peace of mind?

Is your heart trouble free?

Amazing things in truth we find

When eyes selfless can see

 

Please ask yourself if Christ is real?

Ask if the bible’s true

If God’s aware of how you feel

And sees the things you do

 

Now ask yourself who made the earth?

The starry host above

Who gave to Eve and Adam birth?

If not The King of Love

 

Just spare a moment, look inside

Take stock of how you live

Are secrets there you seek to hide?

Or wish The Lord to give?

 

Such thoughts prevail from time to time

The young as well as old

We each have fallen fowl to crime

When lives in truth unfold

 

The feelings in one’s heart at night

The murmurs deep within

These thoughts from which we’d soon take flight

Are fruit of wayward sin

 

Regardless of your answer now

In spite of how much shame

Let wisdom lead your knee to bow

Seek God in Jesus’ name

 

Through God alone is life restored

Beneath His healing wing

When Christ becomes one’s living Lord

Life’s victory song we’ll sing.....
