MONEY: OUR FRIEND, OUR ENEMY

 

1. MONEY: OUR FRIEND, OUR ENEMY

Oh, thou precious friend!
In your absence lies my end
You are graciously made and adorned
Don’t ignore me till I’m gone
I can’t stay a second without you
Even when my worries are so few
I feel empty when you are far off
For in you lies my strength

You are so exalted above human lives
Though you can’t save lives.
You are needed everywhere
But we can’t use you everywhere.
You were created to live on Earth all-day
We will leave you behind
When we finally leave this earth someday.

You are cherished by all
We can do anything to make you stay with us
We are never bothered to commit crimes to have you
We are desperate for you every day.
You are our only hope, we believe
We are doomed without you, we pray
The root of all evil
That is who you are
Though you don’t originate from the devil.

 

2. I FEEL MISERABLE

Thy will be done in my life
I never knew you purposed
For me to be down for a while
I couldn’t hold it any longer
I thought your will was so vile
I feel miserable

Christianity is in the heart
I say
It has nothing to do with my dress
I thought
The enemy looked so smart
And placed me where I belong
I lay in ruins
I am in many tears
The heart of a man
Reveals the dress on a man
I feel miserable

I will never do it
Even if I watch it
I only want to gain experience
To help and change others
But it gained power over me
And changed my manners
I feel miserable!

I live in the company of bad friends
But I’m too strong to win every war
For I am always receptive to your call
Beware of friends!
They can make the fire in you null
My complacency caused my fall
I feel miserable!

I pray I will never sin again
But inwardly I feel I have uttered such words in vain
I am always forced to do what I hate
The attraction is so great
I feel miserable!

Thy words are pure
It saves the sinner and takes him out of much mess
Thy words are lights on my path
May they save me from thy wrath
For I feel miserable
