1. We have a debt to pay
in currencies of love,
and there must surely come some days
when God's love must be tough.


2. Accountability
is what it's all about;
and our sincere ability
not to be over-proud.


3. I need you, you need me:
together we are strong.
But get too proud for listening
and we won't last too long.


4. So tell me when I stray
and cause you some concern
and I will give my all to pray
for grace to humbly turn.


5. Pray also for the grace,
that when you're off the track,
I'll boldly tell you face to face,
and gently lead you back.


6. Together we will fight
in armour of the light,
and clothed with our Lord Jesus Christ,
defy the darkest night.
