Reasoning Without
By Timothy G. Cochran

In our search, oh in our searching
We seek to know right from wrong.
It matters not, without God;
No reasoning would be so strong.

First expelled from paradise,
Prophecy left for fulfilling.
Purchase of the church sanctified...
Follow Christ in now, God willing.

Accepting this is not enough.
Faith alone does not get us in.
Satan has faith, with the wrong stuff.
Repent not without penitence.

We sing our praises in worship,
Completed when God we obey.
Then grace empowers our goodness;
Amending sin becomes our way.

His grace enables fine service,
He furthers work in us to see,
That someday we shall live like Christ.
What a goal to have, what a way to be!!
