ABIDE, STAY

Life may throw a curve ball or two

When you are just dawdling around,

But if your feet stay out of concrete

You may come through safe and sound!

.

.

A whole bunch of sordid accoutrement (*)

May accost you on your way,

But as you abide by Jesus’ side

You could see another day!

.

.

Just fasten your eyes on Jesus!

While keeping focused on Him

Controlling emotions is easier

Staying away from sin.

.

.

So calling it as I see it

Sin in simplicity

Is turning away from Jesus,

That is as true as it can be.

.

.

Do not fool around, Ole’ Satan still

Can put a strangle hold

On anyone who loses touch

And strolls from His control!

.

.

“Abide in Christ,” yes, stay with Him!

Do not ever leave His side!

Christ in you and you stay with Him

That is what it means to abide!

.

.

So as we dawdle and fool around

Just make sure that Christ is there

Ever abiding with Him within!

Living within His care!

.
