From My Cross

Father remove these cups from me The curse of lies, lust and trickery Repeat after me and we shall see If the promise of God deliverance be. Life is laced with seduction and surprise And the ways we're seen through others' eyes "To err is human" -- the great disguise Leaving scholars the world over to philosophize. Come death to do us thy diligent deed Carrying crowns of glory upon thy steed For we fail to call upon thee but for greed  Having chosen the abyss from which to feed. We utter in want "thy will be done" Without accepting the flesh of the Son One's left to live not as the chosen one In denial that the Truth would ever come. Father remove these cups from me Selfishness, vanity, hate and disbelief Entertwine within our spirits for the world to see A love that's lasting, unconditional and free.
