The Wrong Path

by Greg Linscott

Mankind denies his origin.
He mocks Your Holy Name.
The evidence of Your design
Seems but an “empty claim.”

The actions, thoughts, and words of man
Are selfish, vile, and cruel.
No place for truth; no absolutes;
He’s pleased to be a fool.

The path embarked on by their sort
Seems right and paved with ease.
Its destination overlooked
While their own flesh they please.

That path, however, leads to death,
And all must face that day.
Their gods destroyed, Your wrath unleashed,
Your glory on display.

Have mercy, Lord! Our only hope
Is found in Christ, the Way.
Forgive our sins; direct our steps-
That we your truth obey.
