Manipulation, what a sin
That many people jump right in
Controlling all of those they touch
And claiming still to love them much

Manipulation takes away
The other’s choice to God obey
Manipulation controls choice
And gives the other’s little voice

It reaches in to get its way
It knows exactly what to say
No other choice will it allow
And to its will you must bow

Manipulation seeks its own
It’s will it wants and it alone
It may smile and act so sweet
It’s goal, your service, at it’s feet

It cannot serve it’s self and God
Yet many men don’t think this odd
They seek to use you for their gain
Control of you, they must maintain

Manipulation destroys man
Removes each person from God’s plan
Then puts each man in it’s control
Would gladly take his very soul

This conflict every man must fight
To do for others what is right
So know your place, and know your role
Go lead them into Gods control

Don’t let yourself get in your way
But show them how to God obey
And guide each man to God’s control
He doesn’t hurt, He makes men whole

The heart of Christ is simply found
But not by those who are sin bound
The two directions never meet
‘Cept for repentance at His feet

His heart He wants to share with you
His love, His life and all that’s true
His heart is good, His heart is kind
It’s for the ones who seek and find

His heart today is still the same
His love like when to earth He came
He cares for me, He cares for you
To know His heart we must pursue

And all who walk the streets of gold
It’s not because they all grew old
It’s for the ones who found His way
Then didn’t falter, fall away

And those who walk the streets above
First here on earth walked in His love
They found His heart, He led the way
Now do the same without delay
