Sin vs Grace

 Sin seems so close, so easy, so enjoyable,
It seems subtle and sensible when it is obvious and absurd,  
Its seems fulfilling and life giving yet is empty and dead,
We chase it and want it though it gives nothing back,
Lord God, through your Son give me grace now instead.

Grace is so free, so easy, so undeserved,
It is direction to a heart when a heart would chase sin,
It gives life and fulfillment when you’re empty and dead,
It need not be chased for it is a gift,
It is needed not wanted, for what could we give,
To merit Gods favor when we so treasure sin,
Lord God, through your Son I treasure grace now instead.
