Town that surrounds me
appears damaged past restore.
Misplaced ones wander the streets;
evil lurks within the alleys.
Unhappiness afflicts households;
grief omits nobody.
Labor doesn’t fulfill;
victories appear brief at greatest.
Satisfaction evades the hungry;
contentment fades away.
However theres a metropolis that’s coming;
grace has written my identify there.
The best to enter, earned by nobody;
the proper to remain, nobody deserves.
The Son is the gate of entry;
his blood the worth that was paid.
That metropolis provides hope to my journey.
That metropolis brings consolation to my care.
That metropolis awakens me within the morning.
That metropolis provides power for the day.
That metropolis provides solutions to my questions.
That metropolis provides cause to my efforts.
That metropolis provides relaxation when Im weary.
That metropolis provides me peace to sleep.
I used to be made for that metropolis.
