Do the Math

The fear of zero creeps
While faith in one
Does the math and says:
Nothing will never come.

Minus work
And the ability to,
No more money...
What's a man to do?

Naked I came
Naked I will go,
Bless His Name
This I know.

Minus friends and neighbors
And extra family too,
No more vacations...
What's a man to do?

Accept the good
Along with the bad,
Praise Him we should
And be glad.

Minus house and home
And new car too,
No more toys...
What's a man to do?

As I've breath in me
Yet will I say,
All thanks to Thee
This I pray.

Minus wife and kids
And all pets too,
No more bedtime stories...
What's a man to do?

The Lord gives
And He takes away,
As this flesh lives
All glory to You I say.

Minus health and pride
And sound mind too,
No more anything...
What's a man to do?

The calculation I fear,
There's nothing but nothing,
Turns out it's not true.
My faith's still left
And there's nothing but You.

Do the math
No zero here,
Just One
And nothing to fear.
