Sacrificial Love

December 16, 2008

We must live a soldiers life

Sacrificial giving our time to the fight

To work in His kingdom

Must be in our sights

 

The clock is ticking what will tomorrow bring

A bomb could blow, the earth, the wind

Everybody on earth’s life will someday end

 

We hide in denial to deal with the pain

But it gets us no where 

And nothing is gained

 

Time to get rooted 

And work in the field

Time for the harvest that’s ready to yield

 

Time for the river 

Of life in our souls

To come forth and pour out that healing flow

 

Time for the mercy and compassion to go

Into the land 

And into their souls

 

They are fainting from grief and dying all around

They are dying before us

Before hitting the ground

 

Dying inside so hurt and so cold

Who will rescue them 

Who will take hold

 

And run with the answer

The love that they need

Take up the bandages and stop the bleed

 

Why have our eyes been so blinded til now?

What will it take to get us out of ourselves?
