Know My Heart

Why do I pray? Do I pray to say I prayed an hour?
Why do I love? Do I want you beholden to me?
Why do I help? Do I help to hear my name called out?
And why do I sing?

Search me and know my heart, Oh God.
See if there is any wrong thing in me
All I have ever really wanted---
Clean hands and a pure heart.

Why do I give? Do I give so I can get a blessing?
Why do I praise? Do I praise to do the right thing?
Why do I serve? Do I serve so others will serve me?
And Why do I sing?

Search me and know my heart, Oh God.
See if there is any wrong thing in me
All I have ever really wanted---
Clean hands and a pure heart.

God allowed you a pure heart and clean hands! God did even better than that: he gave you the opportunity to create whatever you want! Then came the bible! Since then we have suffered more than anybody suffered before! Religions manipulate everything so as to govern their followers!<br />

Peace be with you!

I have blended many religions together, ... made up a few beliefs too ;) but, i follow none. I walk with the Power, whatever name you which to attach to ...God... Peace and Blessing to you.

That's a beautiful song Breeze :) Have you read the bible ? :) xox

have i read the Bible, giggles... throught out it, several times! i even read the Bible that was written with ALL the chapters in it. King Jame version omitted several chapters... why... cause they can... right or wrong! the bible has changed in wording...over 200 times!! each cult... changes the meaning of words... add and take away from the great history book called the Bible!!!! lol...sigh.... yup, i have read it and KNOW there is more of .... the rest of the story. *smile*
