Counter The Culture

I would not want riches
If I was poor in love
and did not have the heart to give it all away

I would not want a weary soul
That had lost sight of Your goal
But one that had given all to save the Harvest

I would not want tired feet
Because I walked away from Thee
But ran the miles to bring Good News to dark lands

I would not want Your grace for me
To lead me to complacency
But grace that drives me onwards to love You

I would not want another way
To steal this heart, lead me astray
For what else in this world could I live for?
