Deliverance - Showbread

Jesus deliver us from our selfishness
its roots are twisting up into our hearts
and worst of all there seems to be no cure for this
i fear my God that i may come apart
the Jesus that we're shouting in our neighbor's face
looks nothing like the Jesus that you are

heavy is this soul that i've been carrying
so i'm forever giving up my sword
take from me this weight that i could never bear
and i will follow you forevermore

Jesus deliver us from our flags and oaths
the things that we believe will set us free
the fabric, country, system or a man and his land
i'm afraid these things get no respect from me

Jesus deliver us from our raging pride
the things that we say we do in your name
with all our vengeance, votes and picket signs and guns
we put the love you came to bring to shame
