When Praise Demands a Sacrifice
(written 1219.02 | in response to Ate Grace’s special number one sunday…)

Lord, let me brave with the truth
than to be safe with a lie
and when those times come
keep me standing, taking the blows

Because i probably deserve them
Because i’m irresponsible with looking at the monsters eye to eye
I duck, and surmise in hopes they will go away

but the more i linger in happy times
they brood for another day
and gather more troubles to come after me one day

Lord, I come to You
Because you can face the pain,
you fought yourself to Calvary
and you fought the innocence of Your Holy name
When praise demands a sacrifice
Let me step into the fires
with arms outstretched to your glory.
