Lot travelled along with Abraham, he left his home behind

His faith was small, but focused on, the Promised Land to find!

But the Promised Land it lost itís worth, when Sodom came in view

So... with peace of mind his choice was made - but the will of God he blew!

 

Now, from that choice, heís all alone, and caught in a war with kings

If not for faithful Abraham, heíd lose most every-thing

So Abram fought and risked his life, for a nephew far from the Lord

But, Lot... didnít see where his choices ledÖ or where he was headed toward

 

He lived in Sodom like everyone else, he got along just fine

Lot rose to power and sat in the gate, not minding living with swine

How far from God can we find ourselves - just, how low can we go?

OurÖ choices have such consequence; youíll al-ways reap what you sow!

 

Chorus

Oh ďset your affection, on things above, not on things on the earthĒ

Right choices are made, with heaven in view, not sinís fleeting worth

Itís the only way, to beat sinsí wages - to escape, the wrath to come!

So weíll stay to the course, never looking back - our eyes only on Godís Son

 

Finally Godís judgment came, His patience had run out

Fire and brimstone would come down, Lotís future was in doubt!

And once again, olí Abraham, Godís mercy he would plea

For... Lotís, end was coming his world was lost and all he could-do was flee


Lot started well, he had a faith, that walked along with God

But quickly Lot had traded faith for Sodomís bright facade

This righteous man though saved by grace, was still a servant of sin

If, heíd... only yielded to Godís word, not trusting his heart within


Final Chorus

Oh ďset your affection, on things above, not on things on the earthĒ

Right choices are made, with heaven in view, not sinís fleeting worth

Itís the only way, to beat sinsí wages - to escape, the wrath to come!

So weíll stay to the course, never looking back - our eyes only on Godís Son
