What life would be like
If someone followed you around,
Someone that loved you dearly
And didn’t want to you to make any selfish or poor choices.
Someone who cried every time you sinned
And forewarned you of consequences to come.
What life would be like if Christ,
In flesh and blood,
Followed you everywhere.
Would you yell at your sibling for taking your stuff?
Would you be late for fist hour just to talk to your friends?
Would you pass notes about the teacher,
If your Lord read them as you wrote?
Would you swear,
When there really was no need?
Would you put in that CD your parents don’t approve of?
Would you lie to your parents about where you were going,
With Jesus following you there?
Would you take that smoke,
With God’s Son looking into your eyes?
Would you drink
Even a swallow
With your Savior on his knees begging you not to?
Would your life be the same
If your God followed you around?
Haven’t you ever heard,
“Jesus is always by your side?”
