playNobody For Jesus

from Wise As Serpents...Gentle As A Dove


People say you've got to be tough if you're gonna get somewhere
Show 'em they can't take you for a fool
Gotta learn to push and to shove if you're gonna get your share
Make 'em think about it before they mess with you
But Jesus as I look at you I see a different way
And it feels so good for me to lift my voice and say

(Chorus)
Because of you
I can let my guard down
Because of you
I've got no games to play and nothing to prove
So help me be
More the way you are
Strong enough to be gentle as a dove

People say you've got to be cold in a world of you or me
But I do believe there's a better way
There's a man who lived out a love even death could not defeat
And he taught a new way of understanding strength (Matthew 20:25-27)
And Jesus I am praying for the grace to live your way
Gentle as a dove and strong enough to face the pain

(Chorus)

(Bridge) Jesus you embodied God's own strength (Col. 1:15-16)
Strong enough to give your life away (John 10:15-18)
Strong enough to live for others' sake (Phil. 2:1-11)
Strong enough to cry (John 11:35) (Luke 19:41-42)
Strong enough to die (Luke 9:22;51)

(Chorus Twice)
