The Temptation of a Believer

People ask me if I’m ashamed
Ashamed of what I believe
Ashamed to say Jesus is the one
Do you offer the apple of Eve
Are you a serpent’s tongue?

Somewhere, I want to go there
Where it is green, I love its light
I have my fears, that I can’t deny
The sounds in my heart are right
And he can hear while you try

I thought I was dying yesterday
But what is new about being old?
It’s something I must consider now
The awakening of the mortal soul
When death reminds of its vow

You are not my temptation
For he does not ask me in vain
I do not need an evangelical’s choice
In my closet, my prayer is always plain
The word of man is not the son’s voice
