The World Is Not Enough!

 

The World Is Not Enough!

I’m thankful for my time
My Mama said to me
But there is so much more to life
Than what the eye can see.
You’ve nothing when you’re born
You live your life for more
But you will end with even less
If God you still ignore.
The world is not enough
My Mama said to me,
Just like a movie it will end…
The world is not enough!

She lay on her death bed
As if without a care
For she had made her peace with God
And had no worries there.
But as she slipped away
My Mama gave a frown
That spoke to me like nothing else
She sighed, and then was gone.
The world is not enough
My Mama said to me,
Just like a movie it will end…
The world is not enough!

Don’t get emotional
The devil said to me
For that’s the danger at these times
Be manly! Stay with me!
Immediately I turned
To trust in Christ alone…
God used the devil’s lying words
And Mama’s dying frown.
The world is not enough
My Mama said to me,
Just like a movie it will end…
The world is not enough!

has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe…’
