God’s Voice




For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him as God nor gave thanks to Him, but they became futile in their thinking and darkened in their foolish hearts. Romans 1:21

The Way we already know,
the Bible plainly tell us so.

We’ve known the Way, all along;
here is where we’ve gone wrong.

We create our own alternate reality
through vanity, and sensuality.

God’s already done it all;
He has restored our souls.

We must practice maturity,
self-discipline, and self-control.

We’ve sought after things,
that do not profit.

We’ve played the charlatan.
and filled our pockets.

Many are completely blind;
they’ve been given a reprobate mind

They can no longer distinguish,
between right and wrong.

If it’s bad, it’s good
has become their song.

Forgive us Lord for we have strayed.
Just look at all the mess we’ve made.

Let’s remove the veil,
from our eyes.

Lets no longer be foolish,
but instead wise.

It’s up to us to change;
we’re all given a choice.

We’ve been following,
the wrong voice.

Lord bring us back,
from where we’ve been.

Cleanse this nation,
of Her sin.

Like I said previously,
we all got a choice.

Will we choose,
to follow God’s voice?
