Love and Despair

Such a melancholy figure so filled with tribulation
Hitting you where it's sore in stealing all your elation
He will not relinquish his hold but ask you to surrender
He acts like he is so bold but is really just a big pretender

He slowly begins to approach as he looks over his prey
And he will soon begin to encroach having more of a say
He may even sometimes leave as you think you are winning
But something is up his sleeve as he's over there grinning

Then soon he comes back around and just burst right in
For in you he has found that this is an easy win
Now no matter how hard you try or what you attempt to do
You fall right back into his lie in once again feeling blue

Next time you come across this guy just simply replace
As you are on to his lie having now found God's  Grace
Put all his things in a big pile and toss them out the door
His type is so vile and you don't need him anymore

In God's Love you will be free relinquishing despairs own claim
And such despair you will no longer see so you won't feel his shame
Yes in God's Love all despair has been defeated his reign being done
So you can become completed in the Glorious Love of God's Son
