In This World

 

in this world

where highest thought is second guessed

treasured words are cast aside

and selfless deeds have little worth

I will simply live

for Jesus

 

in this world

where tender smiles birth bitter tears

promises too frequent break

and life treads dust on noble dreams

I will simply live

for Jesus

 

regardless

of who does what to whom, or why

amid selfishness, pain or fear

and every unfair consequence

I will simply live

for Jesus
