Whom do I serve?

There are times (I must admit)
I serve the god of my career
There are others (I’m ashamed to say)
I serve the god of my possessions

The god of my wants
The god of my ego
The god of my regrets
The god of my emotions

A noxious assiduity
Utterly self-absorbing
Pushing away all others
Pulling away from Truth

You have called me by name
Your oft rejected voice woven within my lifesong
My heart grieves for Your unrequited longing
There is none beside You

While many gods surround me
None are as true as You
None are so steadfast in love
None are so lavish with mercy

I cannot continue to serve the others
Whose sadness threatens to destroy
So as for me and my house
I will serve the Lord
