What's been getting you down lately?
I feel like I'm sloshing through the mud,
Of the earth.
It's just not the place I knew before,
The place of my birth.
It's a changed place now, full of deceit--
Hate and lies.
I look for the people who're hiding,
Their scared eyes.
"Everything I do doesn't count,"
"I'll never do anything big,
Like what Jesus did that day."
But you realize the truth yourself,
And stoop to their side.
"Trust in Jesus," you say,
"In him abide.
"Do everything for the glory of God,
That he might say,
"Welcome home my good and faithful servant,
When it comes to that day."
