Our God Reigns

I was listening to Delirious? tonight and a song that I’ve listened to dozens of times finally got through to me. I guess I was never paying attention. Here are the lyrics and video:

40 million babies lost to Gods great orphanage,

It’s a modern day genocide and a modern day disgrace

If this is a human right then why aren’t we free?

The only freedom we have is in a man nailed to a tree.

100 million faces, staring at the sky,

Wondering if this HIV will ever pass us by.

The devil stole the rain and hope trickles down the plug,

But still my Chinese take away could pay for someone’s drugs.

Our God reigns, Our God reigns,

Forever your kingdom reigns.

The west has found a gun and it’s loaded with ‘unsure’

Nip and tuck if you have the bucks in a race to find a cure.

Psalm one hundred and thirty nine is the conscience to our selfish crime,

God didn’t screw up when he made you,

He’s a father who loves to parade you.

Yes he reigns, yes you reign, yes you reign,

For there is only one true God,

But we’ve lost the reins on this world,

Forgive us all, forgive us please,

As we fight for this broken world on our knees.

Our God reigns, Our God reigns,

Forever your kingdom reigns.

Un-politically correct truth. I can’t comment, because I wouldn’t do it justice. The words speak for themselves.

    I love that song — we sang it last weekend as we showed a clip from ER where a dying patient wants to talk to someone about forgiveness in light of an eternity defined by heaven and hell — it was such a powerful clip (especially knowing that it ran on network television!)l.
