In my pursuit of happiness, I met pain
A companion of sadness almost driving me insane
Lost into the desert of helplessness with hand in chains
But just in my faithfulness, my hope remains
In my pursuit of happiness, I met shame
My passion still desperate and my dreams the same
Entrusted into the hands of hard work
But infected by the enemies of good luck
In my pursuit of happiness, I met mistake
That hardcore loyalist to dangerous heartbreak
We swam together in the ocean of unseriousness
My dreams and visions simply blamed my foolishness
In my pursuit of happiness I met love
Maybe the affordable hope for my pains to get solved?
Should transport me to the den of deliverance?
Now my vision wept!!What a perfect hindrance
In my pursuit of happiness I met Jesus
He boasted to redeem me from all my loss
Son, your life required my death on that cross
Just pledge your allegiance to obey my laws.
