With Eyes Wide Open

The Crown of Life


2 Timothy 4:8
New Living Translation (NLT)

8 And now the prize awaits me—the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of his return. And the prize is not just for me but for all who eagerly look forward to his appearing.

The Crown of Life

Simple truths are hard to handle,
They tell more than i wish to know,
i prefer a sugar coating,
i feel the sting but the venom’s slow,

i walk along with eyes closed tightly,
Seeing only what i wish,
Truth is not my cup of tea,
Nor crow my favorite dish,

A trio blind leads me onward,
In truth it’s me, myself, and I,
If it weren’t so doggone funny
i might sit right down and cry,

Dear Lord above, two truths you tell,
They’re all I need to know,
First i am a hopeless sinner,
But still you love me so,

With that i’m free of all my cares,
I can lay these fetters down,
You see me as i really am
And still grant to me to wear a crown.

You are Truth in its purest form. You are the very essence of love. Have mercy upon us all…sinners in need of grace.
