He dwells in the countries of Anger and Hate.
He takes counsel of those that deceive him.
He succumbs to the lie that this life is his fate.
He rejects the hand that’s stretched out to relieve him.
Day after day demons whisper their lies.
Day after day this man listens.
It’s heartbreaking to hear the-demons-triumphant-cries
Of success in their unholy mission.
Sir, please, please listen! It isn’t too late!
Take hold of the hand that’s stretched out!
It’s the hand of the Lord! All your sins he’ll negate!
Love and forgiveness is what it’s about!
