I hate vain thoughts,
They sneak up into my brain
Too often, I notice them for what they are
Late. After they’ve grown, but hopefully
Hopefully before a decision or action.
I hate vain thoughts.
Who am I to think like that or compare
Ego and envy are sneaky opponents within
I so love God’s Word, to my rescue and refuge
The Gospel in my pockets left and right.
A KJV paper in my left thigh, a device in my right hip
So when I recognize my longing or languish
I can reach and refresh and re-realize
God’s gifts and grace and truth.
“I hate vain thoughts
But thy law do I love.” (Ps. 119:113 KJV)
