Gates and stone
Will not stand
When destroyer’s come

They slash and burn
And throw down stone
Leaving what was behind

How many times?
Have we built forts
To separate ourselves from God

Telling Him we will listen
Telling Him we are true
And yet living double-minded

I bend my knee
Before the Lord
Jesus knows me well

Forgive me Lord
For ignoring you
Help me to hear

Often what I hear
Is not appealing to me
So I quietly slip away

Then one day
I hear no words
Lord, what did you say?

“Obey me
Walk my way
And I will teach you again.”
