lyrics

O Laodicea
Have you so soon forgotten
It cost Me everything to set you free?
You’re taking Me for granted
And flirting with the world
You’d rather dialogue with another god

The world is mired in subterfuge
Will you despise the zeal of your youth?
Somewhere down the road
You’ve been defiled
By the leaven of hypocrisy
Of secret sin, of apostasy
Mine eyes behold
Your indifference to Me

And it’s plain to see
Though I address you as My people
Your heart is far from Me

O Laodicea
I’m standing outside your door
Ask me thy will to bless
As you blow me a kiss
While hirelings preside
And nepotism rules the day
Take away the noise of your songs
Your cacophony

Cause it’s plain to see
Though you pay me lip service
Your heart is far from Me

Triumphalism crept in
Snuffing dying embers
Ravaging My bride
While you milk the golden calf
Consumerism runs the show
Against My Word
I’ll have you know
Watered-down lukewarm
Pragmatician milquetoast

And it’s plain to see
Though I address you as My people
Your heart is far from Me

You say you’re rich
Increased with goods
And have need of nothing
Yet you are blind and naked
And wretched and miserable
And poor

Your love’s grown cold
You must repent
The lampstand’s quickly dimming
Get oil for your lamp
And cast the wolf out of the fold

Cause it’s plain to see
Though you honour Me with your lips
Your heart is far from Me

And it’s plain to see
Though I address you as My people
Your heart is far from Me
Yet I still love you
But do you love Me?

O Laodicea ...!
