 Back to egypt/Poem by lightwalker

BACK TO EGYPT
[1 peter 4:1]


I say I want to serve you
To rest in all your care
But my heart goes back to Egypt
As if I liked it there

Dissembling, Hypocrisy, and yes
I see it clear, my heart diseased,
The thing I hate
Is firmly seated there

O God I thank you for the eyes
You've given me to see
The wickedness, the evil,
That lives inside of me

I know that I must fight it
By your grace given so free
That your strength will reach perfection
In the weakness that is me.

You long to give me life so rich
And you long to set me free
Yet the death that is required
Is a burning pain to me

So God open my eyes to see
The fire that it cleanses me
To willingly submit myself
All my desires on the shelf

And take thy will instead of mine
Your love would set me free
And the death that you require
It would mean my liberty.
