Cross Movement - C to the R
(from the album Human Emergency)
© copyright Brady Goodwin

Hook: Itís the C. to the R. to the O.S.S.
We make you MOVE with the M. to the E.N.T.
We preach the C. to the R. to the O.S.S.
Coming at you with the Gospel frequently

Verse 1: Iím free from the bondage of having to sin
having to give in
loving the worldís top ten
having to not win when I struggle
free to love the Lord with all of my might
seeing life with all of my sight
vision unimpaired and clearer than ever
now is my faith, my salvation nearer than ever
nearer than when I first believed
then when I first received life from the giver
well springs spring up inside
right from the river (Euphrates style)

you fraidy cats prowl on the fence and howl in defense
Iíd rather find out how to repent to the wildest extent
while this world wallows away in there childish events
stuck in the mode of thugginí and livin for the moment
livin every moment as the Lordís opponent
askiní to be forgivin but giviní poor atonement
hopiní the thought that there isnít really more condones it
but donít it ever seem strange and deranged to see art work with no authorís name on the frame?

The wise move is to check to see if the architect has supplied tools to help us dig deeper
to fall in-love with a God who could rig Easter to rescue the rest of us from the grim reaper
And if you trust Him to save you, you can trust Him to keep ya

Repeat Chorus

Verse 2: Until then, my dealings and my feelings are controlled by the wheel in
the middle of my will, ILL
I fell
hell would have caught me but Christ came And Blood brought me
His love sought me, located me and so faithfully has been
Making me what I am now
when shall this Lord be seen as responsible for all that my team has thatís worth haviní
worth grabbiní
for with both hands, let go of earthís fabric and come closer than youíve ever been to your soulís medicine
jettison this world and itís trends then yoursí
and Christís life can begin

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3: Iím not rhyminí because I like to floss
I toss mics for Christ then step to the left like a right cross
and let Him take the center stage
and set the temperature gage
and get set to blow the spot like ten grenades
Ďcause ever-since a tender age
Iíve moved with the Lord and stayed where the alters and tents were made
So even when the temple is raised then set ablaze, Iíll stay true and give like the Jews when the tenth was gave

Transitioniní itís hard to find a man listeniní to the Lord without raisiní his handís dissiní Him
only true sons see His handís discipline
and have to hand it to Him like ďwowĒ for how he handles them

Thatís when you know youíre not ill-legitimate, even when you get ill a little bit
Days later you still are feeliní it
you donít understand who you dealiní with < cause you over there frontiní and actiní like you ainít feeliní it
Lookiní all hard and beatin your chest, either come to Christ and live or continue breathin to death

Those are the only two options I can suggest, if you can still look at this God and not get impressed.
He came from the highest of heights to the deepest of depths to buy us at sinís price so we can be repossessed

Repeat Chorus
