Light

Psalm 119:105Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” (KJV)

John 8:12  When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (NIV)

1 John 1:7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” (KJV)

Happy Fool

Fool For You

There are times when faith
And common sense do not align
When hardcore evidence of you
Is hard to findAnd I am silenced in the face
Of argumentative debate
And it’s a long hill
It’s a lonely climb’Cause they want proof
They want proof of
All these mysteries I claim
‘Cause only fools would want
To chant a dead man’s name
Maybe it’s true, yeah, butI would be a fool for you
(A fool for you)
All because you asked me to
A simpleton who’s seemingly naïve
I do believe you came and
Made yourself a fool for meI admit that in my darkest hours
I’ve asked what if
What if we created some kind of
Man made faith like this

Out of good intention
Or emotional invention
And after life is through
There will be no you

‘Cause they want proof
Of all these miracles I claim
‘Cause only fools believe
That men can walk on waves
Maybe it’s true, yeah, but

I would be a fool for you
(A fool for you)
All because you asked me to
A simpleton who’s seemingly naïve
I do believe you came and
Made yourself a fool for me

Unaware of popularity
And unconcerned with dignity
You made me free
That’s proof enough for me

I would be a fool for you
(A fool for you)
Only if you asked me to
A simpleton who’s only thinkin’ of
The cause of love

I will speak Jesus’ name
(A fool for you)
If that makes me crazy
They can call me crazed
I’m happy to be seemingly naïve
I do believe you came and
Made yourself a fool for me

A fool for you

For Me and For You

Why

We rode into town the other day,
just me and my daddy.
he said I’d finally reached that age,
and I could ride next to him on a horse
that of course, was not quite as wild.We heard a crowd of people shouting,
and so we stopped to find out why.
There was that man that my dad said he loved,
but today there was fear in his eyes.

So I said, ‘Daddy, why are they screaming?
Why are the faces of some of them beaming?
Why is He dressed in that bright purple robe?
I bet that crown hurts Him more than He shows.
Daddy please, can’t you do something?
He looks as though He’s gonna cry.
You said He was stronger than all of those guys;
Daddy, please tell me why.
Why does everyone want Him to die?’

Later that day, the sky grew cloudy,
and Daddy said I should go inside.
Somehow he knew things would get stormy.
Boy was he right, but I could not keep from wondering
if there was something he had to hide.

So after he left, I had to find out.
I was not afraid of getting lost.
So I followed the crowds to a hill
where I knew men had been killed,
and I heard a voice come from the cross.

And it said, ‘Father, why are they screaming?
Why are the faces of some of them beaming?
Why are they casting their lots for my robe?
This crown of thorns hurts me more than it shows.
Father please, can’t you do something?
I know that You must hear my cry.
I thought I could handle a cross of this size.
Father, remind me why.
Why does everyone want me to die?
Oh, when will I understand why?’

My precious son, I hear them screaming.
I’m watching the face of the enemy beaming.
But soon I will clothe you in robes of my own.
Jesus, this hurts me much more than you know,
but this dark hour, I must do nothing,
though I’ve heard your unbearable cry.
The power in your blood destroys all of the lies;
soon you’ll see past their unmerciful eyes.
Look, there below, see the child
trembling by her father’s side.
Now I can tell you why…
she is why you must die.
