Broken and Defiant

He has entered and found chaos.
He has observed and is broken.
He has found defiance and disbelief
To every word He has spoken.
He has reached out in love
And even personally sacrificed.
But the blood of His only Son
Was not a high enough price.
Selfishness, greed, and pleasure
Is all they care about.
They are eager and ready
To leave God out.
But when they are broken,
When they are distressed,
They will call on Him
And they will expect.
When they don’t get what they want,
They will throw Him the blame.
He will merely reply, “Depart from me.
I never knew your name.”
