Temporal or Eternal

Around and around you’ve been spinning

Lying to them all, you know they’re not winning

With your vastness and your mighty tilt

They say you’re innocent holding no guilt

Running after the things of you blindly they follow

Don’t they see what you’re offering is shallow?

They call you Mother and they call you home

And for happiness to the ends of you they’ll roam

In their green houses; a worldly affair

They worship you as if you care

I don’t wanna gain you and lose my soul

I’ve been down that road, played that role

Someday soon they will all see

Every tongue confessing on bended knee

You will pass away on that hallelujah day

When our bridegroom comes to carry us away

  1. Amen, amen!!! Like the song says,

    This world is not my home
    I’m just passing through
    My treasures are laid up
    Somewhere beyond the blue
    The Angels beckon me
    From Heaven’s open door
    And I can’t feel at home
    In this world anymore.

      1. Gosh, I remember Petra back in the early 80’s. One of my favorite Christian groups. Yes, we are just pilgrims passing through. ♡
