Your light streams out

“Don’t they know?” asks the Lord. “Are all these evildoers ignorant? They live by robbing my people, and they never pray to me”
(Psalm 14:4; GNT).

Lord,
Your light streams out
To show the way,
Yet we would rather slip and fall,
Than pray.

Your truth streams out
To help with every task,
Yet we would rather fail, alone,
Than ask.

Lord,
Your peace streams out
To end all strife,
Yet we would rather hate,
And waste this life.

Your love streams out
To heal each barren soul,
Yet we would rather kill
Than be made whole.

Lord,
Your fire streams out
To cleanse all blame,
Yet we would rather die
Than face our shame.

Their minds are full of darkness; they wander far from the life God gives because they have closed their minds and hardened their hearts against him
(Ephesians 4:18; NLT).
