Your Desires Deserve

Why are you making it so hard
Keeping your lonely heart on guard
You want to get me down on my knees
To help you decide to become free

I’m too tired to try and play the game
Tit for tat is never quite the same
It’s time to come down on your own
Off your towering self-absorbed throne

This is our last chance before I leave
Let me turn back for you to see
Here I am giving my hand and heart
Your desires deserve a new start

Heb 4:14 – 5:4 Lenten Day 31

Tempted yet without sin
So that we can have mercy
Coming to the throne

Priest offered sacrifices
Compassion for ignorant

I hope this inspires you to check
the scripture for yourself.

This is not supposed to replace
the Word of God; it’s only my
interpretation.
