Clear the Stage

>

This is such an incredible reminder of what worship truly is (and who it is for)… It is not about the music, even though we can get caught up in it. As humans trying to do things in our own strength, we can sometimes become so self-centered about worship! Hit pause on my blog playlist (in the bottom right corner of the page), watch, and listen. May God work in your hearts as He has in mine. (The lyrics are written out below.)
 

Clear the stage and set the sound and lights ablaze
If that’s the measure you must take to crush the idols.
Chuck the pews and all the decorations too
Until the congregation’s few then have revival.
Tell your friends that this is where the party ends.
Until you’re broken for your sins you can’t be social.
Then seek the Lord and wait for what He has in store
and know that great is your reward, so just be hopeful.

Cause you can sing all you want to.
Yes you can sing all you want to.
You can sing all you want to
And don’t get me wrong, worship is more than a song.

Take a break from all the plans that you have made
And sit at home alone and wait for God to whisper.
Beg Him please to open up His mouth and speak
And pray for real upon your knees until they blister.
Shine the light on every corner of your life
Until the pride and lust and lies are in the open.
Then read the word and put to test the things you’ve heard
Until your heart and soul are stirred and rocked and broken.

 
Cause you can sing all you want to.
Yes you can sing all you want to.
You can sing all you want to
And don’t get me wrong, worship is more than a song.

Worship is more than a song.

Anything I put before my God is an idol.
Anything I want with all my heart is an idol.
Anything I can’t stop thinking of is an idol.
Anything that I give all my love is an idol.
We must not worship something that’s not even worth it.
Clear the stage and make some space for the One who deserves it.

 
And I can sing all I want to.
Yes I can sing all I want to.
I can sing all I want to
And still get it wrong…

And you can sing all you want to.
Yes you can sing all you want to.
You can sing all you want to
But don’t get me wrong, worship is more than a song.
Worship is more than a song.
Worship is more than a song.
Worship is more than a song.

Clear the stage and set the sound and lights ablaze
If that’s the measure you must take to crush the idols.
