O how quick we are to run from You
We turn away from You
And to the filthiness of life so easily
How we love the ugliness that life offers
We turn from You
And love the joy that sin receives
We indulge ourselves in baths of unrighteousness
Lying, Stealing, Cheating
We love the evil and hate the truth
We never realise or understand or perceive
How ugly these things are
Which we so politely put in front of You
We give ourselves and our desires
The throne of our lives
All is about us
And what a big problem if anything comes in our way!
O Lord please help us to see!
Will we ever see?
We thrive on the selfishness of life
Calling it true life!
