I thought that I was the power

So I built a high tower

I wanted to reach the stars

But left only scars

Then I built walls that were high

Over my head that touched the sky

Reinforced with mortar and brick

So no one can see how I tick

They were made to keep you at bay

At league to keep you away

The higher that I would climb

To seek pleasures sublime

I thought that I was doing well

But I was on the road to hell

Little did I know

There was a different way to go

The Lord stopped me in my tracks

Now I know there’s no turning back

It was His Goodness that I taste

Unmerited favor and His Grace

He washed me with His Blood

Clean me from all the mud

My life is what I give

To serve Him is how I live

His commands I try to obey

His Word is where I should stay

I am free to live at last

I’ve been freed from my past

I’ve been washed by His Blood

Freed only by His Love

I take and take and take

In your skin I make you quake

I pose as the angel of light

With me you’ll do nothing but fight

You will fight to keep me around

As I turn your life upside down

I first come as your friend

Life with me never has to end

I’m your secret that will destroy

I will use you as my toy

They say curiosity killed the cat

You thought that I was phat

My aim was to destroy your life

To take your family and wife

All you have is what I took

I would even take your looks

Your dignity and pride were next

There was nothing I would reject

I caused you nothing but pain

On the just and unjust it will rain

I take and take and take

In your skin I make you shake

You quiver when I’m around

I turned your life upside down

What Am I

It’s the church that we are called to be

Because Christ died on Calvary’s tree

It was the lost He came to save

Death couldn’t hold Him in the grave

On the third day He rose to life

To conquer sin and strife

It was His message that was spread

From His Word is where it’s read

His commands we learn to obey

As we walk with Him each day

He came to redeem us all

From the curse of the fall

He will come in and change your heart

From there you will be set apart

We then have a new life to live

It’s our service we learn to give

The church is who we are called to be

Now this is the call for you and me
