If oft you feel like options lack
refuse to see things “white” or “black”
There’s joy and freedom in the gray
your heart and conscience know the way
Sounds deviant and selfish, yes?
this morass only makes a mess!
If that is so, just practice more;
You’ve patterns to undo from yore
Ungodly! Have you read The Book?
I have – perhaps you ought to take a look.
Start with Matthew, hear His voice;
you won’t find legalistic “choice”
Just two great “laws” on which all hang
and shackles fall off with a clang
Love G*d with all your power and might
then neighbor, too, and you’ll be “right”
Too easy! There must be a list!
There is one – read Leviticus(t)
If you can follow THAT, my friend,
you don’t need Jesus – that’s your end.
Did not intend to make this “Christian”
I know for some it’s merely fiction
Believe or not, the “rules” apply
it’s love that helps us all get by.
There’s nothing you can know that isn’t known
Nothing you can see that isn’t shown
There’s nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be
All you need is loveJohn Lennon / Paul Mccartney
All you need is love
All you need is love, love
Love is all you need
