Will you also go away,
and turn your back on Him too
will you be the one who forsakes
all that Jesus has done for you?
Will you as well forget Him,
and from your faith go astray
will leave your trust behind
to find your peace another way?
Will you be caught up in the lies,
and give up on the old and desired
will you turn from the true Word
for one that isn’t God inspired?
Will you give up your holy future,
and settle for another death
will you give up on the Holy Spirit
until your dying breath?
Will you give up your inheritance,
and separate from the All-Sufficient
will you throw away His eternal love
for one that can never be efficient?
Will you give it another thought,
before you listen to Satan’s pitch
will you become poor once more
so Jesus can again make you rich?
King James Version
“From that time
many of His disciples went
back and walked
with Him no more. Then
Jesus said to the twelve,
“Do you also want to go away?”
Deborah Ann Belka
