Let Me Tell You Why

Let me tell you why
You try and you try
And still come up dry

This generation looks for a sign
And does not recognize
It’s visitation time
Praying and fasting
For days at a time
But ignoring the explicit
Word of the Divine

Let me tell you why
You switched out what’s Living
For what has died
Taken the tradition of men
To try make The Word of God a lie

Let me tell you why
Because deep down inside
Ten commandments
Can’t be made up of nine
And it continues to gnaw
The back of your mind

Let me tell you why
You keep all ten
And still are weighed
And found wanting
Because you still withholding
Still cherishing
The thoughts of men
Holding up a reputation
Rather than a standard
On His love blood-stained foundation

Offended by His suffering
For your salvation
And it calls for your participation
In His pride numbing humiliation

Let me tell you why
Because you wanted outward reformation
But denied for Him
To work within

Let me tell you why
You shout in tones
That can’t be understood or ignored
Now you can’t hear the calm steady
Knock at the door
Seeking to be exalted
Ignoring the glory of Your LORD
And you have to dive deeper in than the last
To get excited more and more
So you ignore
The emptiness you find in store
When the excitement is gone
And you touch the floor

It is not a feeling you seek
But Truth
Not the mountain peak
But Truth
Not the eloquent speak
But Truth
It is not what we want to hear

Let me tell you why
Because you and I
Have dry eyes
When we see Him die
Because of pride
