The people had gathered outside the king’s court
To hear what Isaiah would say
They’ed broken the serpent and leveled the groves
And thrown all their idols away
They thought God would thank them for doing their part
Yet He looked past their deed to their heart.
The thoughts that would lead you away from the Lord
The way that would bring you astray from His Word
Which path will you take, which choice will you make
From sin are you willing to break?
We carry our Bibles and offer our tithes
We vote the conservatives in
We’re standing for Israel, for marriage, and life
Ignoring our personal sin
We think God will thank us for doing our parts
Yet He looks past our deeds to our hearts
