We’ve all been subjected
To words that pierce our heart,
And we remember the trauma at the time
When with those words we wouldn’t part.
They affected us in different ways
Because their wounds were deep indeed,
And although they were spoken in haste and anger
Those words we did believe.
But there are several words
That are the most devastating ever,
‘I never knew you, depart from Me’
Where in the Lord’s presence we’ll be never.
They’re amongst the most poignant of His words
Because we can be so easily deceived,
Into believing that we’re right with God
But where His eternity will not be seen.
The bible makes it very clear
That we must be born again;
It’s a spiritual birth from above
And in John 3:3 it’s penned.
Because our carnal and our fleshly ways
Cannot inherit a pure heaven,
And neither can our old nature
Which is absorbed with so much leaven.
When a soul is born again
A new vision will take place;
When man-made religion and false humility
By God’s Spirit will be replaced.
Because it’s comforting to believe
That our piety is sufficient,
But unless the Holy Spirit is received
Our soul will be deficient.
The devil also believes indeed
But we know he is not saved;
It requires the precious blood of the Lamb
In our heart and soul to stay.
