The root of the problem

by Gloria Beach © 1994

To maintain a beautiful garden
the weeds you'll have to pull
not only on the surface
but the roots deep down below.

To be a shinning servant
the sin will have to go
not only on the surface
but the heart deep below.

The Bible talks about bitterness
take a look at Hebrews 12::15
if that's the root of your problem
be assured your weeds can be seen.

Deep inside there's lots of anger
some bitterness and hate
as you confess all this to Jesus
weeds and roots he'll gladly take.
