Is There Really Love In This World...

Is there really love in this world?
Sometimes it makes me think
By wondering out loud
As I walk observing coldness
Life is like being lost in dark clouds

Stepping down, observing
Seeing more of homeless
Many people on the streets
With the rich getting richer
As the poor getting poorer
With not much food left to eat,

Many that are blessed, feeling so exalted
Seems to be actually cursed
Since to all the pain
That others go through
Their blind eyes are closed,

With many always thinking
That they are special in God's eyes
It makes me remember
What one rich pharisee once thought.
As we read some words of Christ,

In Luke Chapter Eighteen
Verses Ten Through Fourteen
About a Pharisee together
With the tax collector
Standing in the temple,
Praying to God,

Deep from their hearts
Each pouring their own thoughts out,
The rich full of pride spoke
Thanking about what he was not
While the poor tax collector
Beat himself in the chest
Saying have mercy on me
Oh dear God.

As Christ said to others
Who do you think left justified?
So I ask
Is there really love in this world?
As I walk in the coldness
Being lost amidst dark clouds,
Is there really love in this world?

Yet still inside, outside of me
I too must beat my heart
By putting all my trust in God
In faith with works by believing
In the ultimate example of His Love
As He sent us His only begotten Son.
Gave us time to repent,

It makes me think
That He could of destroyed us all
By recreating everything
With His mighty right hand
Yet because of His gracious love,

He gave this world a second chance,
By sacrificing his only begotten Son
Sacrificing Him for us all
So we would have everlasting life
Once once and for all.

He was bruised for our iniquities
But still crushed the serpent's head
Through love and meekness
By giving hope of everlasting life
He gave our souls a second chance
To be saved from eternal death,

So an example of true love is He
Who gave His life away
So we could have that second chance
By being forever free through Him
And in the end a better day we'll see
So why not start today
By accepting Christ into your heart
Before your life
Turns into black clouds,
Then slowly fades away, by crumbling apart.
