by Pett Ezra Isaac
What’s on Earth that will divert me, That will turn me away from His love, The love that, He feels me with. All were thoughts in me, But I am weak, a sinner. A sinner who keeps sinning Whenever I get tempted He’s the only one who embraces me, Not minding who I am. People have judged, They have punished me, They have abandoned me. You still bring me closer to You. You have given me opportunities, To keep sailing, and You promise me, No wave will turn my boat, No wind will change my direction. You take me where You want me to be. But when I reach, I turn away from You. I sin again, thinking I am right. And You're bringing me back to You.
