TAKE TO THE WORLD

29 Jul

This is a song that I heard again this past week and remembered how much I appreciated the lyrics.  Listen to it (the lyrics are below) and share with us what your favorite line is.

TAKE TO THE WORLD by Derek Webb

Go in peace to love and to serve
Let your ears ring long with what you’ve heard
And may the bread on your tongue
Leave a trail of crumbs
To lead the hungry back to the place that you are from

And take to the world this love, hope and faith
Take to the world this rare, relentless grace
And like the three in one
Know you must become what you want to save
‘cause that’s still the way
He takes to the world

Go, and go far
Take light deep in the dark
Believe what’s true
He uses all, even you

One response to “TAKE TO THE WORLD

    “know you must become what you want to save” – for me that speaks to how we cannot keep ourselves separated from the mess of this world. We must place ourselves in the midst of it, not shelter ourselves from it. Throwing money at injustice is a way of keeping ourselves at a distance.
