Fighting for the status quo

Just trying to go with the flow

Searching for approval

Motivated by denial

And the fear of man

Doing whatever can

Win me some acceptance

Regardless of the expense

To appease the longing

In my heart for belonging

Seeking to satisfy

The crowds cry

It’s the never ending cycle

Always bringing refusal

It’s the same game

Always bringing shame


We sell our souls

While they sold His clothes

It’s the blood of Jesus

That saved us

When they shamed Him

For my freedom

He took my shame

While unashamed

When He came

To end the game

God’s perfect love

From above

Broke the chains the upon me

Now I live freely

In what’s promised

Eternally accepted

By the King of kings

And the Lord of lords

In the family of God

Where I belong
