“I See You”

ãGreg Alan Oosterhouse, 2-22-2006



When no one else is in your company,
You are home sweet home,
I want you to know that I can see
What you do when you think you’re alone.

When you converse with other folk,
You give compliments and encouraging words,
I hear your thoughts, the insults and jokes,
How you really think of them ‘nerds’.

You desecrate your temple in vile ways.
Your tongue is used as a deadly weapon.
Praising the Lord with others fill your days,
While at night you are a disgrace to look upon.

I know your plans, you promise to change.
I am there when you pray to the Lord.
You plan to sin, then ask Him to rearrange
Your way of thinking, you give Him your word.

It doesn’t work that way, you can’t do wrong,
Then ask for forgiveness afterward everyday.
Ask the Lord to change you, then it won’t be long
Until you stop swaying back and forth, then “Amen!” I’d say!

I am you, the one that is with you always.
The one that sees you do right and wrong.
So remember that when you plan deceitful ways,
I am there watching you, so remain fervently strong!
Live life in love, for to love is to live!

[Councillor's note: I moved this poem here to the Worship in Song and Poetry forum.]

True words, Greg--far truer than many of us are comfortable with. :?

Oops! I thought I posted this in anything goes. It is about one's own conscience. Maybe, Greg.
