Aha, Aha, Amen

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

The heart, the heart of man
Is wicked to the core
We ought, we ought; all that we can
To read God’s scriptures more

The love, the love of God
Never betrays our trust
We should, we should humbly applaud
His compassion for us

The hope, the hope we have
Is found in Him alone
How cold, how cold the hostile grave
‘Neath unbeliever’s stone

Prepare, prepare with awe
For that from which none flee
The righteousness of Holy God
And Immortality

The way, the way we end
Depends Wholly on this;
Believe, believe, my soulmate, friend
In He who ever IS

It is IMPOSSIBLE not to realize it again and again,
as we turn from the graveyard filled with the dead
 back to the land of the 'still dying',
 how deceitful, wicked and worldly, when left to its own vices,
the heart is!
Let's face it; God's grace is our only, utter hope!
