I read the words of a modern day Saul
And how he persecutes the church in the name of God
With his self-righteous, legalistic load
I just pray that he walks down his Damascus road
Not gonna let him bring my joy down
I've been set free by Jesus blood and now I...
Spin round, round
Drop down touch the sky
You thought I'd say ground
But I'm leaving it far behind
Down below me now
The clouds are my dance floor
And I know you've got so much more in store
More in store (for those who love you)
I read the headlines every other day it seems
Some politician's attempting some double-speak
Misquoting scripture to suit his own agenda's needs
Confusing issues of stone-written morality
Not gonna let his spin catch me off guard
I'm anchored in your grace, but my feet still find it hard not to...
He came so we might enjoy life more abundantly
And that our joy, in his love, might be complete
So stop dragging others down with your chains of rules
Just let your joy jump free, stop playing the fool
"For I know the plans that I have for you
Plans to prosper and not plans to destroy"
What eye has seen nor any ear heard it
What God has prepared for them who love him
Jeremiah 29:11; 1 Corinthians 2:9
