I do always remember Him— At work and play, home and gym I do always remember Him— Deliberate, consistent, not on a whim I do always remember Him— Now and still when eyes grow dim I do always remember Him— My heart, all pride, I strive to trim I do always remember Him!
Around my heart with anger, I built a hardened shell; And planted thorns of bitterness to further guard it well. Then sat in smug depression as the persons passing by, Unable to ever reach me, no longer stopped to try.
Thundering forth from Sinai’s height With lightning, smoke, and fire light— An invitation to take God’s grace, And prepare the soul to see His face. Yet Israel’s children with hardened heart, Chose, instead, a lesser part.
Doing laundry is such a chore. Sort the colors? I ask what for? Then throwing whites with red and green, I toss them all in the wash-machine. But all my smugness turns to dread When all the whites go tie-dye red!
