Wrote this a while ago, thought I'd post it anyway.
Where shall I flee?
Men to my left, an Army pursuing
A squadron right, and a minefield looming
How can I escape my enemies?
I run and I pant
I work hard every day
Yet I fall down, my legs can’t carry me
I fight a loosing battle.
Hounded by these devils and demons
Tempted to stand and die in my pride
I make a choice.
On my own I will never survive.
As I stand ready to die
For my heart to beat its last
The oasis in the desert appears
A light before me shines.
I greet Death joyfully.
Yet I finally truly live.
The heart that was mine is no more.
My enemies fall to the left and the right.
Behind me they tremble, turn, and run
Apart from you I was broken too.
I was lost and in despair,
Stricken with iniquity
Yet when I gave my heart to You,
You forgave and bought me.
Not by the blood of my enemies,
But purchased by your very own.
The Lamb of God, the Son of Man
I will follow daily.
