about

I wrote this song while going through some soul searching. I was considering my faith in God the importance of knowing the truth about what Christ has done for us. It's not just a story. It's the beautiful and incredible life of Jesus Christ and this song depicts how I see it.

lyrics

Verse1
Oh He wrote a letter and became the ink and pen
with the promise of forever overcame death and sin
He turned the whole earth over and now the veils been rent
What's been done before in shelter has been revealed to all men

Chorus1
and I say
The cross is not just a necklace that you hang upon your chest
and Christ is not just a picture to be framed with all the rest
it's the life that He lived from the child into the man
the life that He would give bled from His own hands

Verse2
He's a chariot of fire with flames in His eyes
His light was burning brighter as He came to purify
His breath was growing weaker when the soldier heard Him cry
Take my spirit Father for the world I give my life

Chorus2
and I say
God is not just a story to entertain a sinful world
His love that day was pouring He overcame the wicked soul
Shining in the darkness bringing glory on that day
when His light burned its brightest the day He took the reigns

Bridge
It's your glory and your wonder oh perfect Lord
your kingdom is coming we're at the door
so humble so lovely and worthy of praise
it's your glory your wonder and your perfect ways

Chorus1
and I say
The cross is not just a necklace that you hang upon your chest
and Christ is not just a picture to be framed with all the rest
it's the life that He lived from the child into the man
the life that He would give bled from His own hands
