Life is so very, very seared;
Be sure not to let it pass you on by.
Jesus promised that He would always be near,
But first, unto Him, you must draw nigh.
His love for you is very, very deep;
Sometimes, it can almost seem intoxicating.
Yet, He is such a gentleman, merciful and meek;
His love is never made to be suffocating.
This world is so very, very impure;
It will always turn your ’round and ’round.
He longs to give you a hope and a future;
He wants to free you from these chains you are bound.
His time is so very, very uncertain;
We cannot know the hour or the day.
Turn to Him before they draw a curtain;
Surrender your heart or be eternally swayed.
