“Lest We Regret It Later”
If it’s just for one night
Then I don’t want this.
Won’t throw away what I can’t get back,
It’s not worth the consequences.
‘Shows me it’s not worth the price we’d have to pay,
Show me there’s another, better way.’
Even if it’s what we want,
This just isn’t what need.
Innocence is too high a price
To pay for feeding infatuation.
Better to fight temptation now
Than to regret choices later.
It isn’t easy to resist such things
And without God it’s no use trying.
Against fools’ ways we must now stand,
Better to refuse sin, reject compromise.
‘What about these feelings growing strong?
Why not just seize this moment now?’
Lest we regret it later
We must do what’s right now.
Won’t throw caution to the wind,
Won’t be guilty of that common sin.
‘Isn’t the heart stronger than the brain?
Doesn’t the mind often get in the way of love?’
Put to the test with eyes fixed on Christ
Resist sin and temptation in this sick age.
Preventative measures taken now, count the cost,
To avoid future heartache, regret, and loss.
