If the world hates you
Do not marvel

Is it our deep desire to approach Him or do we hide
from knowing what can sometimes be hard to know.
Confronting truth can be filled with painful fears.
Anger and blaming life is the curse of our souls.
To know Him is to love Him.


If only we could all live
under the One God of our salvation!

If we take His Truth above man's.
