Acoustified Wretches

The Wretched Brothers had a recording session Sunday, and this is the one good take out of all the songs...
Anyway, this is a great all acoustic song written by Blane Jr.

Here are the lyrics, straight from Blane's blog.

Go away from me Lord, I‘m a man unclean.
Go away from me lord, for you are too holy.
I have spoken once Lord, I will speak no more
I am all undone Lord, crippled to the floor.

Oh God I did not want you, still you wanted me.
Oh Lord I did not love you, Yet you died for me.

Draw me near to thee Lord, Bid my fears depart.
Grant me love for thee Lord, Repentance to my heart.
In your Boundless love Lord, My sins have been erased
Blotted out in love, By indelible grace.

Ch 2
Oh God I could not see you, but you lit my way.
My evil heart despised you, but you chose me anyway

Rid my heart of sin Lord, make my thoughts your own
Teach me more of thee Lord, make your mercies known
Require what you will Lord, Give me strength to obey
Make my heart renewed Lord, More like you everyday.

Sola Scriptura Sunday?

I thought I'd join the ranks, and offer my own rhymey-whymey weekly post! As you can guess, it's a simple
affair; I pick a verse during the week, write about it, and post it on Sunday. After all, what better day to post
about scripture on than the Lord's Day?

Anyway, here's a sample:

John 1:5 - "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."

Later in this chapter, it is made clear that "the light" is Christ Himself (v. 9-13). As soon as I realized that, this
verse became very interesting indeed. Of course, this can be a reference to His final victory over sin and death in His sacrifice and resurrection, but I believe there is a different, but related, application here.
Sometimes we Christians may have the question put to us, "What do you do with the problem of evil?", or
something along those lines. I daresay that herein lies a good answer, for indeed, there is great darkness in
this world, but the Light, which is Christ, has already defeated the prince of darkness, and where Christ is, the darkness can never overcome. Oh, the darkness may creep in and try to swallow us up, but in Christ's
name, and by His blood, we have a sure defense! Let us all cling to Him in all things, for He shines in the
darkness, and the darkness will never overcome Him!
