The Last Song

This is the last song for the Fundamental project, hence the name. I posted all the lyrics primarily for convenience sake as I'm to old to read the liner notes on a cd.

Let me seek not my glory
Nor favor from any mortal man
Let me flee from all so unholy
Turn a blind eye to all that is sin
Let me be a vessel so broken
Tried and true till the end
Let me mirror the Gospel
To a world condemned from within 


Like a rose with a thorn
A beauty I have to defend
Stands alone in a field that’s dying
A sight I behold, defying the wind

Floodwaters are rising
Levees of time still buying, still buying
The land cracks wide, so dry, so dry
Inviting waters come rushing in
The stench of sin to reek, to reek
The heart still meek to weep, to weep
Still the wrath comes pouring down
Still the waves come crashing

Chorus :

Help me stand against the tide
Binding wounds on every side
Help me in Your truth confide
Let the I inside me die
Hear me, Lord, Lord hear my cry
Help me stamp out this pride inside
Lord bring me to my knees
Just bring me to my knees

Listen up, listen up if you’re wishing
Wishing what, what to do when your time is due
If you’re freakin’ look, look there’s a beacon
It’s a lifeline sent just for you
Well, are you ready, steady eddy ready eddy
For a break, No mistake, it’s time to ride
All aboard, cut the cord; all aboard just one more time
See, I’m feeling mighty fine

And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted his hand to heaven,
And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer.  Revelation 10:5-6
