GOD'S RIVER OF LOVE
Misguided souls practice unworthy acts
As they struggle to fulfill selfish need.
Performing what they must without regret
Consumed by mistrust, fear and greed.
God's river of love, grace and deliverance
Free us from past mistakes, guilt and blame.
The longer we delay improving our conduct
The more we suffer heartbreak, ignorance and shame.
It's never too late to submit to God's will
Broadcasting His wisdom from our heart.
The greater we trust and live by His word
From impurity and transgressions we part.
When we are called into, a new life with Christ
We encounter obstacles, barriers and heart break.
The worst barrier is the culture in which we live
Where too many prosper by corruption, consumption and take.
Our world's primary focus is possessions, wealth and sex
Not caring about others, faith, values or God's command.
In many ways our society is spiritually blind and rebellious
Defying the laws of God, nature, wisdom and man.
Thank heaven for faith and the righteous of heart
Who shine by their love for others and God's grace.
We're blessed to be successful, grateful or alive at all
As we cling to our planet in the speedway of space.
