Poem: En-viable Life

Standard

Proverbs 24:1 Do not envy wicked men or desire their company;

Do I envy wicked men?
Would I take their place?
Do I crave the power to rule
More than the pow’r of grace?

Do I worship selfishness?
Does pleasure hold my reins?
Would I rather live in peace
Than share my Savior’s pains?

Why should I live a life that’s pure
When sin’s the surer bet?
If God can’t promise happiness
Why do I trust Him yet?

Maybe because all those gifts
Are hollow without You
Maybe all I need from life
Is Your love so true

Lord open up my heart today
So that Your face I see
And live a death upon the cross
That others will envy
