Give Up

Give Up
January 9
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
