I see them alongside me, Lord

living lives both fast and careless

carriers of your name, as I

and I wonder of the license

allowing them to take delight

in joys I cannot even imagine

am I so tightly laced, Lord

that I cannot see a single joy

where joys abundant flourish

do I alone of all on earth

avoid these delights, they claim

give you glory by their joy


is this path I’m on truly true

or do I walk a way untaught
