Love came from heaven to walk the earth

It was all who’s lost He came to search


He was beaten bloody, bruised black and blue

Hung on the cross meant for me and you


It is His message that changes our heart

It is His Spirit that He imparts


It’s His grace that’s free for all

A response is needed with the call


A new creation is what we are

He set the standard, He raised the bar


Our walk with Christ is paramount

It is the cost that we must count


A humble heart is our goal

We belong now to God’s fold


It’s His grace we can’t earn

For this is the message we must learn


If you’re broken or lost or can’t find your way

Jesus is the answer for everyday

We are told to turn and run from lust

One look can take away all our trust

One look is never just one look

You sneak another and that’s all it took

One look has you captured by surprise

You never look into their eyes

One look inhabits the pleasure zone

Which in the end leaves you all alone

You’re captured by an adrenaline rush

Which turns your reality into mush

One look will cause you to sneak around

When in full bloom has you bound

One look gets you all aroused

Before you know it has you soused

One look has deception whispering in your ears

Then tells you lies that turn into tears

One look has you in chains of selfishness

Then has you blind and saying To Hell With This

One look will rob you of your family

Which will have you chained to calamity

But there is someone who can free you of these chains

Turn to Jesus and hand over the reins

Submit to God resist the devil and he will flee

When you submit to God He’ll be all you’ll see

What are secrets and what will the do

They are hidden stories, they kill and

destroy too

If I keep a secret, carry it under my hat

Is that so bad, what is wrong with that

They don’t just destroy, they hurt people


They break people’s trust, then I don’t

know what to do

Secrets are hidden lies that I try to cover

What’s so wrong with that, I always have

to tell another

To not keep any secrets, should I be open

as a book

Watch out for wrong motives, always

examine and take a look

Being transparent, open and honest as

can be

To carry around secrets is not the way

for me

So really, how do I not keep secrets around

Tell myself What Would Jesus Do and Trust

He is my Solid Ground
