Oh how can we be fooled?
How can we forget
How can we be so wrong?
We know everything....

We choose a heading
Then we just sail...
even though we can spot the rock
hiding in plain sight

All we know that we do so wrong
We will try and reason it just
We will even bargain
Just to try and make it right...

But we forget
To take the compass's heed
And head straight for the gaping jaws
That jwas just waiting in plain sight...

Oh Lord we can just call
Call for Your heading to be restored
to follow again that compass
The Spirit so Holy...

Please Lord YHWH
Please restore the path
The path You chose for us
The path, that we have lost....
