In one quick flash, I hear a splash,
The trouble some get in!
They scream and shout and then yell out,
"Please help me from this sin!"
The selfishness of those God blessed!
May lightning strike them down!
They misbehave. Let Jesus save -
or let them sink and drown.
Life guard, to be, is hard you see,
and I'm a nervous wreck.
To help someone? I'd rather run
than risk my precious neck.
I disappear in church right here
with friends, safely on shore -
and say on cue, "I'll pray for you"
then pray five seconds more.
It really stinks when someone thinks
the obligation's mine.
Though sin assault, it is their fault!
And that's the bottom line!
Am selfish, I, if I don't try?
I'm just one lone observer.
I have my place. I have my grace.
I have my 'life preserver'.
By now you've guessed that I've been blessed
and Heaven-bound indeed!
So don't be blue. They'll rescue you
and other folks in need.
Who cares 'bout sin - and things within
that dark and angry sea?
Why should I care who's thrown in there?
(unless, of course, it's me).
