Words by Bob Hartman
Based on 2 Peter 2:20

There are things that look attractive
On the surface of despair
There are things that hold my interest when I really shouldn't
Care
I have felt intoxicated viewing
Pleasures from afar
But I've been illuminated when they're seen for what they are
Keep me ever closer
Save me from this strong seducing...

Magnet of the world
It reaches to my heart and pulls me
Magnet of the world
Wants to keep me far from You
If it wasn't for Your love that holds me
I would give in to the
Magnet of the world

When a compass pulled by magnetism points a different way
It's not hard to lose your bearings, it's not hard to go astray
Guide me with Your lighthouse
Keep me from the rocks and from this

When will I be free from this
The unfulfilling counterfeit
When will I learn to resist
The constant pull that does exist
Take me farther from this path
Of least resistance now
Will You show me how?

And if it wasn't for Your love
That holds me
I would give in to
The magnet of the world
It reaches to my heart and pulls me
Magnet of the world
Wants to keep me far from You
Magnet of the world
It reaches to my heart and pulls me
Magnet of the world
Magnet of the world...
