Give Up

Proverbs 9:6

Forsake your folly and live, and proceed in the way of understanding.


The difference between what I gain and forsake

is the same as feces and cake

it is my folly I’ve been asked to give

a small price in order to live


Give up darkness receive light

give up blindness receive sight

give up sickness receive health

give up debt receive wealth


That’s all I hear that’s all He’s saying

patiently and carefully He’s been conveying

He’s calling me to receive His touch

and release the folly I love so much


Give up pain receive pleasure

give up stress receive treasure

give up restlessness give up strife

give up death and receive life
