Cross Movement - The Way
(from the album House of Representatives)
© copyright 1998

Verse 1:
The cross reconciles where sin is known to sever/
That’s why when beats and rhymes are sewn together/
We extol the God whose enthroned forever/
He storms the weathers and stills them/
Chooses fates and seals them/
Revives His children takes empty lives and fills them/
Who’s willin’ to come unto the major player/
Who paid the wager of all ya’ll Savior-haters/
And changed the nature of your condition and position/
Sin sick to healthy, hellbound to hell free/
He inhabited frailty conquered the grave got death and hell’s keys/
His side of the story compels me to say, "Hail Thee!"/
To the Emperor, Sin-bearer/
The riches of His wisdom and knowledge turns men from error.

We know the Way/
We speak the truth/
We live the life/
‘Cause He’s the Lord

Verse 2:
Eternal light of men came to give sight to men/
The same light that shines blinds men/
Who in their own eyes are wisemen/
Fallen in their human ways, their dooms displayed/
‘Cause they refuse to remove the shades/
And consume the rays of the Light-Giver/
The Gospel’s an offense I’m aware of the hostility it might trigger/
People wanna battle and fight/
‘Cause they can’t handle the Light/
They’re still stuck in the mode/
Of foreshadows and types/
After the Dark Ages came illumination/
Meaning the Son was made visible like the fourth day of creation/
To expose the deeds of men/
So we can see our sin then/
See the need for Him to bleed for men/


Verse 3:
I think it’s sad how men try to grasp/
The divine truth of God when without Christ God and man clash/
Like pokadots and plaid/
They say our doctrine’s bad/
As if explainin’ God is a drop in the bag/
Divine truths are concealed/
Unless God chooses to reveal/
What we believe is by faith there’s no need to prove it’s real/
"The Bible’s corrupt!"/
Well, that’s the phrase that’s getting’ old/
Bottom line, you’re blind to the mysteries of the written code/
Are you among those whom the Son knows/
Does your hope rest in the fact that the Son rose/
When it comes to trust people are placin’ bad bets/
What can be proved requires no faith to accept/
False teachers writin’ bad checks/
Don’t be deceived/
Many believe in God but what about God do they believe/
Is he like the old man with the long beard you’ve seen in cartoons/
Did He board the mothership and fly to the back of the moon/
In Revelations is He the A and the Z/
Or is He gonna come back and say He lied about who He claimed to be/
Did He suffer in hell for sin or was His death enough/
Trust solo Cristo minus the extra stuff
