Poetry

You Are Forgiven

By Ron Ben-Dov

The donkey and the elephant going round and round

Each one trying to tell you what is best for you

They argue like children on the playground

They tell you what they think you want to hear

But neither one intends to deliver what’s best for you

The devil stands behind encouraging the double talk

But Jesus isn’t like that, He’s interested in saving souls

He doesn’t promise you eternal life, if you send a donation

For Jesus Christ has already paid the price for you

Your sin absolved, the price been paid

For Jesus is the life, the truth and He is the way

You are forgiven
