Fact and fiction side by side
Occupying significance in our minds
Everyday we live one way
So often evil as though Christ had no say

Yet in our minds we know the truth
Jesus died for my soul to be loosed
Loosed from evil, loosed from sin
But again and again sin wins

Why this way? Am I a fool?
Or must I school my heart to use
The way of truth and obedience rules
Jesus is Lord and He is the king

I take for granted those truths of grace
Jesus gave them for me to face the day
The unknown looms and the stacking pole
Gives me strength to walk in the cold

This world-this place is passing away
Soon I’ll stand before His throne
I’ll give an account-I can’t tell a lie
Obedience is the key to controlling my mind
