No, Not (Every)one

There are many things I daren’t say
Of those who call upon Your name
Of being followers they claim
They say theirs and Yours are the same
But only a glance shows they don’t walk as they say

There are many things I daren’t say
Of my own shameful turn from grace
For fear of reliving a dark place
Amazing love amazing grace
By faith makes You my hope and stay

There are many things I daren’t say
Of this long road I travel on
The tempts, trickeries, snares and cons
That try to steal the vict’ries won
They surround the light and try darken the day

There are many things I daren’t say
For I know it’s not my duty or aide
To make of their sins excuses made
For me of their sand to have my foundation laid
In the end the floor being lava is not a game

There are many things I daren’t say
But here is what I am able to
I would like everyone to love You
And treat me as You do
For you ask me to
Love them just as You do
But it remains true
They have not chosen to
But don’t let this tear me from You

For there is no God like You
Who shall I instead run to
They may have not made commitments to you
But I do
You are the Only One who makes me able to stay true
They may not know You
But I do
At least what glory I am granted to view
And just for this little bit I love You
By Your grace I try to
But it doesn’t mean they do

So I get disappointed when I am scarred
By these pilgrims marred
Nevertheless, Your will be done
In my tiny life and hope others’ one by one
Because there are few who strive to run
No, not (every) one
No, not (every) one
