The news each day is filled with hate and greed;
The leaders of the land evade and lie;
No matter where you go they all have need
To reach into your pocket, slick and sly.
And worst of all, you too have joined the crowd;
Your anger’s like a cloud around your head.
The wish for more and more is clear and loud;
You lie and cheat and steal your way ahead.
O friend! Repent right now and turn away!
This world of flesh and sin will bring you down!
Get on your knees this second, start to pray,
And give your life to Christ before you drown!
To separate yourself from sin and death
You must cede all to Jesus with each breath.
For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them
every one is given to covetousness;
and from the prophet even unto the priest
every one dealeth falsely.
Jeremiah 6:13 KJV
