Plagues abound Blood in The Nile The Pharaoh hardened Life defiled. Blood on my chin Smoking black tar The dragon I chase My heart is hard. Let my people go! The frogs in a heap The Pharaoh unfazed His pride runs deep.
Rivers flooding I hear The Spring Peepers I drink like a glutton Denial runs deeper.
The dust transforms By the strike of Aaron's staff The gnats surround The Pharaoh still deaf.
Early in the morning I arise with new meaning By noon I get high I resist God's pleading.
The deceit of The Pharaoh A feeble compromise God does not negotiate In come the flies.
Five on the bottom Jack on top Hit me dealer I can't stop.
His heart unyielding The Pharaoh would not balk The Lord told Moses I will kill his livestock.
Perpetual lust A debacle ensues Family destroyed My flesh rules.
The soot was thrown From Moses hand The boils festered By God's command.
I kill in my heart I'm seething within From God I depart Jealously wins.
Moses confronts With God's word to Pharaoh Let my people go! Or hail will impale. Lightening and hail And thunder resounded The land was demolished Will God abandon?
Why do I shirk And halt like a sloth God's Spirit is pleading Like Pharaoh I'm receding.
How long will you refuse And not be humble The locust swarmed in The Pharaoh incompatible.
Eerie darkness Fell upon Egypt For three days heavy blackness Pharaoh still reluctant.
Crisis after crisis Pharaoh's heart cemented Loud wailing throughout the land The first born lamented.
The Pharaoh's affront To God with pride My disillusionment Similar reply.
Will the plagues fall on me In a different form Succumbing to darkness Abandoned and forlorn.
The Pharaoh was steadfast Unbending from the start My mind suspicious Can He change my heart.
Let myself go! Holy Spirit enter in My flesh, please depart No longer can I contend.
Caught in the drift Blown the wrong way The tension from guilt God perilously away Living in selfishness The root of unhappiness Sin is the problem Perpetual hopelessness. A break in the wind The result of prayer The realization of Christ We become aware That we are free And He is the wind Blowing us back To him once again.
Mindful of nothing Paralyzed dreams Lazy and apathetic What does it mean. Rash and unfinished Resolve is diminished I seem to compete With what I can't complete. Moment by moment Grandiose feelings Never content Nothing appealing. Is this a test That God is dealing My heart is stubborn My mind is stealing. Stealing His will for my soul I still refuse, I still feel dull. Oh, he is persistent Despite my distance I don't take serious What seems so mysterious. The fulfillment in Him And in Him alone Seems so nebulous My faith is incredulous. But nothing is working And nothing I feel God help me to reach thee To You I appeal.
Jesus in the garden His plight, Gods plan, He knew He prayed with sorrow and anguish He knew what would ensue. Can one man endure all sin? Can he take on Gods mission? His sweat tinged with blood He fell face down in submission. The agony and torture was upon Him The Judas kiss labeled Him the accused He was mocked, beaten, and flogged He was spat upon, His heart contused. Prophecies and miracles made it obvious That Jesus is the Son of God But that did not matter to Caiaphas As Pilate's soldiers continued to flog. The Lamb would not perish Until it was all complete He endured the cross to Skull "They have pierced my hands and feet." "MY GOD WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME!" He had finally breathed His last. He bore the sin of the World The future and the past.
I cast my nets I walked on water You are The Christ You are The Father. I will die I will not leave I'll never disown The Nazarene. You were with Him The girl cried I don't know Him I denied. I swear to God I swore and cursed I gave my oath The rooster rehearsed. For three times I did not say I cried, I wept I ran away. Jesus looked back My repentance he foreknew He felt my sorrow He made me new.
