Am I just a painted hypocrite,
for all the world to see?
will my fig-tree have any fruit,
when He comes to look at me?
Am I sleeping in the garden,
when He really needs me most?
He’s asked me to be a watchman;
but have I left my post?
I know one day He’s coming
and one day soon I’ll stand
I wonder if I’ll be ashamed…
or be found a faithful man?
Do Him I deny in front of man,
will a rooster crow today?
do I follow Him from way afar,
will He turn and look my way?
Now…is my heart a holy one,
steadfast, fixed, and true?
is my mind cleansed, pure and washed,
devoted through and through?
Does His word mean more to me today,
than in all the years gone past?
is my love brand new – tried and true,
do my words have meaning – will they last?
I’ve considered the cost of building a tower
my hand to the plow…I’m committed
no turning back and no regrets
unto His will I am submitted
Something’s happened deep within
I see in a whole new way
is this what it means to live in glory?
a taste divine…a place to stay
A ladder between my God and me
I climb and He descends
how can this be – it’s too wonderful to grasp
these spiritual things just have no end
No time, no distance…in a world out there
eternal things consuming
I really think that Enoch saw
these truths for all – yet unassuming
Holiness unto the Lord
across my forehead scribed
the work complete – a God to meet
a mind now washed – a heart revived
I hear You in my garden say
“now go…but tell no man”
Your words to me are precious gems
changing me as nothing can
A weight of glory pressing through
time stands still it seems
a shield of light – a cloak of might
a mantle given – blessings redeemed
Have I been blind for all these years,
and let these things slip by?
a softer heart – a wiser man
no more blind, nor deaf am I
I follow fully now the Lord
With Caleb – Hebron, let me share
Christ the Land so fair to me
Christ the Man to Him I care
