Wonderful Precious Apathy

 

I was lost in the depths of concern and love for my brother,

but now I am free and know I need not bother.

 

I used to want to help others, so I would study and dig and pray,

but now I know that it was all in vain for such efforts do not pay.

 

Let me tell you about wonderful apathy, for I have been born again you see ,

I used to fret and be so concerned, but now I'm so free,

thanks to wonderful precious apathy.

 

The world goes on in sin as it has for ages past,

It is bad, but thankfully our concern will not last

 

We will soon get used to this downward slope,

and will then with those in sin too elope.

 

Let me tell you about wonderful apathy, for I have been born again you see ,

I used to fret and be so concerned, but now I'm so free,

thanks to wonderful precious apathy.

 

Just watch the children who round our feet do play,

Soon it is them who will have to pay.

 

By then we can go on our own merry way

For we've no need to fear a coming judgment day

 

Let me tell you about wonderful apathy, for I have been born again you see ,

I used to fret and be so concerned, but now I'm so free,

thanks to wonderful precious apathy.

 

Jesus came and then he left and has yet to come again,

So why worry about today or tomorrow for we all know that sin is sin.

 

We say no one can obey God, and yes, He said otherwise, so we must still try.

Admittedly, hypocrites we are, but we will be perfected when we meet Him in the sky.

 

Let me tell you about wonderful apathy, for I have been born again you see ,

I used to fret and be so concerned, but now I'm so free,

thanks to wonderful precious apathy.

 

 Is this not how it is with so many of us?  This is what the perversion of self-esteem produces.
