Rules of Atonement

He sent down the stones So long, long ago With hopes we would see And follow the road The rules He had set Were etched on the face Of the stones He had sent With hopes to replace The evil That lurked Within us all And so He said, take heed In actions and all that is done We all must follow them Yes, even His Son Who came, to again guide us To that path, to that road With a message to all To release then the load, of The evil That lurked Within us all For though evil may be There is good deeper down And it’s important we see So we can find Holy Ground Where the Father does dwell Where we can also find home So with the rules He had sent We can surely atone
