Oh Christian! By David E. Mills

Oh Christian, dear Christian,With your eyes wide shut;Unwilling to see,How deep is your rut.
Out of tradition you cling,To your man-made creeds,Stubbornly trusting in them,Though God’s grace set you free!
His grace so abounds,If only you knew;That His love is His gift,It’s not what you do.
You’ve boxed our God in,With the doctrines you teach;Limiting His grace,But never exceeding His reach.
Our God is so faithful,To restore all things to Him;Yet His grace you refuse,His favor to win.
Break down all the walls,Of the denominations you’ve built;And allow God’s love,To take away all of your guilt.
He’s faithful you see,For His love knows no end;He yet knocks at the door,Won’t you please let Him in?
He sent us His Son,To die in our place;That we be restored,Through His holy grace.
Your works do no good,To earn you a place;At God’s holy throne,It’s His amazing grace!
Your works do no good,His favor to win;He sacrificed His Son,To take away our sin.
Oh let go of your creeds,Rush quickly to His arms;And receive His great gift,And be not alarmed.
For it is man who has told you,(And you remember it well);That breaking God’s “rules”Will place you in “hell”.
But “hell” is man-made,Not God’s will for man;He’ll restore ALL to Him,As only His Grace can.
For our Father is fair,And He made us for Him;Won’t you open your heart,And let God’s Grace in?
And don’t let men rob you,Of our Father’s great plan;To bring ALL men to Him,Through the death of One Man!
When you lay down tonight,Please give God His place;To surround you in love,And immerse you in Grace!
