Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

Greater things

Greater things

 

I want to do greater things

than even you have done

I want to do greater things

Lord to glorify your son

I want to see greater things

happening in my life

And the greatest thing of all

Is more of Jesus Christ

IOU

IOU

 

There’s pleasure in sin for a season

But God has your name on an IOU

Can’t you see we are the reason

Jesus died to pay your IOU?

If I confess

If I confess

 

Another night of frustration

in looking back over today

I know in light of our relation

I’ve missed the mark

But I hear you say

 

Child I love you more than you can know

My precious promises are there to help you grow

 

If I confess my sins

God is faithful and just

And He will purify my heart

If I confess my sins

And in Jesus I trust

I know by faith I’ve got a brand new start

Is this a test?

Is this a test?

 

Here I am in the wilderness again

wondering how I got here this time

I had my sights on the Promised Land

but it seems I’ve lost my way

 

Is this a test of my faith?

Where is the hope to bring me through?

Is this a test of my faith?

 

Here I am reaping what I’ve sown

I want to believe that you still love me

That doesn’t make it right

That doesn’t make it right

 

You’ve got excuses, you’ve got it all figured out

Your mind’s made up beyond a shadow of doubt

If it isn’t clear in black and white

You don’t see any difference between wrong and right

 

That doesn’t make it right

No that doesn’t make it right at all

 

You say it doesn’t matter what you do

How you choose to live is up to you

You claim to believe but you’re living a lie

I don’t see any truth in your compromise

One single tear

One single tear

 

One single tear

falls from my eyes

One single tear

for all your compromise

Electronic babysitter

Electronic Babysitter

 

Electronic babysitter

What do you think they really see?

Electronic babysitter

Reality or fantasy it’s just TV

Electronic babysitter

What is it putting in their minds?

Electronic babysitter

The eternal price is much too high

Dawn comes early

Dawn comes early

 

Dawn comes early

when you’re hiding from the light

Dawn comes early

when your life isn’t right

with the Lord

Borderline

Borderline

 

You think it’s exciting, you think it’s fun

You love the danger you’re just beyond the gun

You play the game by your made up rules

You pretend it doesn’t matter if you win or lose

 

Borderline

you like living on the Borderline

Borderline

how far can you go over the line?

You’ve convinced yourself it doesn’t matter at all

How close can you get to sin before you fall?

You’re on the Borderline
