on't lead me down the shadowed roads
To show me earth's debris―
I saw my share of hidden sin
Before God rescued me;
I'll not forget how blind I was
Before He set me free...
...just let me walk in Jesus' light,
That's all I need to see.
Don't lecture on theology,
No matter how sincere;
My poor brain cannot comprehend
Such teachings so austere!
They tend to muddy up my thoughts
Instead of making clear...
...just tell me more of Jesus' words,
That's all I need to hear.
Don't frighten me with prophesy
Of times I might outlive―
When saints and sinners, sheep and goats
Are filtered through God's sieve;
It breaks my heart to know the fate
Of those He can't forgive...
...just teach me more of Jesus' love,
That's all I need to live.
