If it's not in your Heart

If it’s not in the Heart 
You say you love the Lord 
And want him in your life 
You say you need a true friend 
To comfort you at night 
You said the Lord saved you and 
Fill you with the Holy Ghost 
You never stop lying 
Running from coast to coast 
Stop pretending you are doing 
Right if it's not in your heart 
Stop saying you are holy 
When you don’t love the Lord 
You go to church on Sunday 
Because it is a tradition 
Serving the Lord everyday 
Is always the main issue 
It seems to be in your mind 
And not in your heart 
You are playing your script just right: 
Down to the very last part 
When you stand before the Lord 
On that great getting up day 
If you didn't live your life right 
What do you think he will say? 
Do what the Lord ask you 
Right down to the very last part 
Stop living church in your mind; 
And start living it in your heart.
