Time and Time Again

Time and time again,
You give so much to us.
Instead of giving praise,
we cry, “You are so unjust.”
Time and time again,
we whine for what we want.
We reject You for something else
that we merely use to flaunt.
Time and time again,
You must punish us with
consequences we created
with our fleshly sin.
Time and time again,
we cry for You to rescue.
We need salvation
from what we asked of You.
Time and time again,
we come to see Your heart.
Though we can be so cruel,
You hate for us to be apart.
