EAT MY WORDS

Take my words seriously
Or don’t take them at all.
This is my desperate plea;
This is my final call.

Take the key to the Kingdom
Or stay wrapped up in shame.
There’s a new Heaven to come,
And it is yours to claim.

Voices from the wilderness
Echo on down through time.
We all would love to confess,
But pride’s our major crime.

You can dwell in the darkness,
Or you can seek the light.
Toss and turn with all that stress,
Or sleep right through the night.

It’s an open invitation,
All-you-can-eat buffet.
No long-term initiation;
Your dues already paid.

No need to be sad,
No need for dismay,
No look of sorrow,
No sorrow displayed.
Rejoice and be glad
For this is the day,
This is the day
That the Lord has made.

For from Him
And through Him
And to Him
Are all things delivered.
For from Him
And through Him
And to Him
Glory springs forever.

Take my words seriously
Or don’t take them at all.
This is my desperate plea;
This is my final call.

Take the key to the Kingdom
Or stay wrapped up in shame.
There’s a new Heaven to come,
And it is yours to claim.

Voices from the wilderness
Echo on down through time.
We all would love to confess,
But pride’s our major crime.

You can dwell in the darkness,
Or you can seek the light.
Toss and turn with all that stress,
Or sleep right through the night.

It’s an open invitation,
All-you-can-eat buffet.
No long-term initiation;
Your dues already paid.

No need to be sad,
No need for dismay,
No look of sorrow,
No sorrow displayed.
Rejoice and be glad
For this is the day,
This is the day
That the Lord has made.

This is no fable,
No allegory.
Those who are able
Will heed His story.
