What’s that You’re Worshipping?

WHAT’S THAT YOU’RE WORSHIPPING?

© DECEMBER 10, 1984

What’s that you’re worshipping

is it a person or car?

What is on your pedestal?

Is it the best by far?

What about your diamond dreams,

the riches, the fantasies

We hold on to things that fade…

things we hold so precious it seems.

Well, the storms will come and the winds will blow

The things that you worship will crumble and go.

And when the fire comes what will you have

The things of the world will just burn in your hand

And ashes to ashes, and dust to dust

What doesn’t burn is sure to rust

And the only thing that’s left to stand

Is what we build on the Rock and not sand

You can have all that money can buy.

You can be an intellect if you try

You can win your friends and be so wise.

But like the fool you too will die

You’re friends with the world and enemies of Him

Lay down your arms and be His friend

Open your heart, cast down your things.

Give room for Him and worship the King.

Then the storms will come and the winds will blow

Keep your eyes on Him, He won’t let you go

And when the fire comes will melt I’m told

But from these rocks we’ll turn into gold

And ashes to ashes, and dust to dust

What doesn’t burn is a crown for us

And the only thing that’s left to stand

Is what we build on the Rock and not sand.
