Chaos seems to reign
Life nothing but pain
Existence without meaning
Happiness always fleeting
No hope or point at all
Eat and drink today, then wait for death to call.
Order created by gift
A universe He did uplift
Made man in His image and likeness
So that all might return to His highness
Reason and intellect instilled
But the greatest gift was free will.
Pride, anger, lust and envy
All the evil deep within me
Demons call with tempting lies:
"He doesn't love you, why even try?"
"Don't let Him rule you with an iron rod
Give into your passions; be your own god."
But from a land called Galilee
Came the Son born to hang on a tree
To repair the rupture caused by sin
Reconciling the Father to all men
Gave His body and blood to pay an infinite debt
The victory is won; the table set.
Still the darkness remains deep within our hearts
Since the Garden of Eden, the devil plays his part
A sickness in the soul; gains met with loss
Symptoms always worsen when eyes are off the Cross
The cares of this world blot out the rays of light
Many turn their backs; lose the will to fight.
So "come to me" He says, "and I will give you rest"
"Pick up your cross and follow me towards that rocky crest"
"I cannot promise you leisure, or a life absent pain"
"But the suffering I endured merits your eternal gain"
"Have no fear my child, I'm present here and now"
"Upon the altar; a tiny Host; My love cannot be bound."
God love you.
