In seeking laws, you've strayed from your story,
Replacing God with manufactured rules so hoary.
For equity, you aim, but judge with no remorse,
Your love for judgments veers far off-course.
In endless statutes, you find your safety net,
Yet, God's laws, you forget.
Ignorance of His decrees you do despise,
Yet His divine commandments minimize.
Your arrogance closes your eyes to heavenly ways,
You trust your hands, your heart, and not the gaze.
Devoid of a mercy seat, your palms are stained and cold,
For innocent blood, your hands withhold.
The fear within corrodes your very soul,
Justifying deeds that take a heavy toll.
You cherish not the treasures of the heart,
And in your eyes, they fall apart.
With words of peace, you sow destruction's seed,
You've lost the path to God's steadfast decree.
In your pursuit of laws, you've gone astray,
May grace and peace guide you back today.
Let me repeat!
Your need for law, shame or glory,
Legal acts aim to guide from paths untold,
Yet, artificial rules now tell the story,
Replacing God, with corrosive gold.
In equity, you seek, but judge with pride,
Judgment secures your own way,
Traditions make the innocent decide,
While truth is silenced, silenced, day by day.
Thousands of laws, yet God's you can't recite,
Ignorance is no excuse, you boldly claim,
But His commands, you choose to overlook,
By your own judgment, you're to blame.
Conceit, that adjective fits,
You look not to heaven nor within,
Your hands, like some mercy seat, blood on them sits,
Your merciful heart remains so thin.
Corrosive fear justifies your deeds,
What you'd defend, as truth, has lost its worth,
You speak of peace, yet sow destructive seeds,
God unknown, His grace, His peaceful mirth.
Turn to His love, His healing, and His grace,
Let go of pride and lean into His warm embrace.
