 A form of Godliness/ Poem by Lightwalker

A FORM OF GODLINESS

The gospel is a simple truth
It only asks one thing
That we should rise from death
By faith
His resurrection bring

An offering he asks of us
Of every thought and deed
The self must hang upon the cross
His spirit he must lead.

The liberty the children have
It must not be confused
With outward forms
Doctrines of men
It is the power to begin

To mortify the deeds of death
That we might live to life
To open up our eyes to see
The glorious power that works in thee

That mighty power that he wrought
When Christ rose from the dead
Gives us the power to obey
To walk along His narrow way

The letter brings us down to death
The spirit only life
The life of jesus manifest
A walk of love and peace and rest,

Yet if we say we follow him
And walk not as he walked
The truth it does not live in us
For God is love, all else is dross.

And when you in the mirror see,
The lack of love in you, turn not away
Your Lord has given sight to blinded eyes
That you might come to him for strength
In humbleness not pride.

And so my brothers sisters see
The power he has given thee
To die to death, the self is death
And christ the only life.

And he has come to save you from yourself
But you must strive
With all your heart , and soul, and strength
The seed it must first die.
