Beware the Heart
The sacrifice of God’s own Son
On that appointed tree
Before the world and water were
Was destined for our Liberty.
Like Summer when she breathes
The life that Spring has sown
And offers what we all could share
And yet so few have known,
With ease and swiftness it departs
While heedlessly we wait
For we are slaves of our own hearts
And freedom comes so late.
