An Addiction Song

Sometimes a song speaks to our condition better than a sermon. When I heard the song, “O That the Light,” by Jenny and Tyler, I thought the songwriter must have been a fly on my wall. Listen to the track as you meditate on the words.

O That the Light

You surrendered your body to the lust of your eyes
Persisted in the wicked and corrupted your mind
Addicted and masking those habits with lies
You petitioned to death and objected to life

You spent all the money you borrowed and stole
Called the demons your friends and loved ones your foes
How we tried to love you, but we didn’t know
the depths of the evil, the extent of its hold

So you boarded your windows to shut out the day
Hid in the darkness your sins and your shame
You seized and devoured, you drove away
all the lovely and beautiful, but still there remains

…Grace

O that the Light might find you
O that the Light might find you
O that the Light might find you
And open your eyes
And open your eyes

O let it open your eyes
Open your eyes

O that the Light might find you
O that the Light might find you
