We need a living God
Guiding us each day
Let go of those idols
They pull you away

Away from loving
Away from truth
Away from happiness
Into futile pursuit

Look at your habits
Traditions load you down
Hate for others
Causes you to drown

Drown in your sorrow
Pity deep and swift
Blinding you to wisdom
Ending in your defeat

We need a living God
To listen as we speak
Giving us solutions
Before we are old and weak

Choose to follow Jesus
Choose to claim your life
Step out of the shadows
No idols in this life
