God's Love Forever New


What good is sense
If it only makes sense to you

Proclaiming a litany
When a few words will do

Holding on to bitterness
Rather giving sweet expressions

Sell your soul to evil
Or engage sincere confessions

Walk amidst darkness
Instead of enveloping light

Curse day after day
While longing for inner delight

Trusting in no other
Though you've learned a lesson

Live as in bondage
With the keys in your possession

Waste time on lies
When all that is needed is truth

Living a life of misery
Refusing God's love forever new
