Entangled in earthly possessions -
the world of the physical,
or free, like a bird, that's flying high -
the world of the spiritual.
I once had lived in the earthly world
of personal toil and grind;
but now I live in a different realm -
a world with peace of mind.
A world that I could never earn,
a world I'll never leave,
a world where others can live too,
if only they'd believe.
I could never leave my world,
and return to a life of sin.
As I've lived in both these worlds
I chose the one I'm in.
Yes, there are two separate worlds.
We can only live in one.
We either build a life for us
or live for God's own Son.
Though I can reach back there to some,
I cannot pull them here.
I cannot pray them here to me,
or bend a lone, deaf ear.
We alone have made the choice
in which world we're living -
and if we haven't seen God's world
we don't know what we're missing....
