What’s the scariest of woes?
Some say snakes and some say spiders
What strikes terror to your toes?
Some say floods and some say fires
Some say dentist drills or creepy clowns
Climbing up or falling down
But I’ll tell you what’s the scariest around
Sin–it’s the scariest
Sin hurts everyone
Sin–how it hides in us
It’s all the wrong we’ve done
It separates us from our God
Behind these prison walls
Oh, sin is the scariest of all
What’s the scariest to you?
Some say living, some say dying
What’s the worst thing you can do?
Some say failing when they’re trying
Some say getting germs or getting shots
Getting lost or getting caught
But I’ll tell you what’s
The worst thing we have got
Since Adam and since Eve
Sin’s spread like a disease
We know that on our own we cannot beat it
But though it seeks to kill
Our God is stronger still
And only by His grace can we defeat it
