Up to a Point

I’ll follow You, Lord.
Up to a point.
I’ll live by Your word.
Up to a point.

I’ll sit here in church.
I’ll tithe and I’ll pray.
I’ll read my Bible.
‘Most every day.

As long as it’s easy.
As long as it’s cool.
Don’t ask me for more.
I’m nobody’s fool.

I’m at Your command.
Up to a point.
I’ll take a firm stand.
Up to a point.

I’ll listen and nod.
I’ll give an “Amen!”
I’ll lift my hands high.
I’ll sing praise again.

As long as it’s easy.
As long as it’s cool.
Don’t ask me for more.
I’m nobody’s fool.

I’ll walk as You walked.
Up to a point.
I’ll talk as You talked.
Up to a point.

I’ll bask in Your love.
I’ll enjoy Your grace.
I will serve the world.
From my comfort place.

As long as it’s easy.
As long as it’s cool.
Don’t ask me for more.
I’m nobody’s fool.
