Don’t kid yourself

 

Don’t kid yourself
That you are right –

Just love the Lord
With all your might. 

Don’t kid yourself
That you are kind –

Just love the Lord
With all your mind.

Don’t kid yourself
That you are smart –

Just love the Lord
With all your heart.

Don’t kid yourself
That you are whole –

Just love the Lord
With all your soul.

There is no healing

 

Lord, 
There is no healing
In dogmas, rules and creeds –

For only a relationship with you  
Can meet my needs. 

Lord,
There’s no forgiveness
In formal prayers of shame –  

For only a relationship with you  
Will clear my blame.

Lord,
There’s no salvation,
In attending church each week –

For only a relationship with you
Gives what I seek. 

Lord,
There is no kingdom 
To be found beyond my soul –

For only a relationship with you
Can make me whole.

Lord,
I’ve always kept my shadow self
In darkness,

Shunning the thoughts
I’d rather not accept;

But now, I’m sharing
My whole self with you,

So these thoughts become the cure
That makes me whole.
