belief

we're caught up in thought and expecting the worst
searching for wisdom and purity to quench that deep thirst
falling and failing at what's most desired
our efforts are tailing and our souls have been mired

you hate yourself, you hate the sin
you hate the sinner, killing love within
don't let it win, don't let it grin
love and forgive

it's time to look again and see what we've done
advised by the world and its daughters and sons
we've gotta screen what we've heard and what we've seen
defy our emotions, find out what did God mean

you hate yourself, you hate the sin
you hate the sinner, killing love within
don't let it win, don't let it grin
seek and discern

forgive and forget cause we're all just the same
rebuke then encourage, He's already been slain
all here by grace and all equal in debt
no one is holy, the demands we couldn't have met

you hate yourself, you hate the sin
you hate the sinner, killing love within
don't let it win, don't let it grin
don't let your eyes be clouded by your self and your cares
let God work in your soul and destroy evil's lairs
turn over thoughts that you're in control
live as He lived, touch your lips to the coal
anger will inflame you
despair will consume you
distrust will destroy you
the Lord defeats all, call on Him up as your shield
believe
