Do the Same Lyrics

Untitled (Do the Same)
Aryn Michelle 2013

I start my prayers with that same old line
Bless me, help me, heal me, keep me safe at night
Sitting so pretty in a seat saved for me,
It’s just too easy keeping up the routine
I hold on to a Sunday best commitment
but You want more from me

You didn’t die so that I could follow all the rules
You didn’t bleed so that we could make ourselves look good
You didn’t rise from the grave to keep me safe
You gave it all so that I could do the same

Feeling good just ain’t good enough
cause there’s hungry mouths and broken hearts that need your love
The high and the mighty build towers and walls
but the humble and empty, You use and You call
I’ve spent too long look back, looking inward
There’s so much more to see

You didn’t die so that I could follow all the rules
You didn’t bleed so that we could make ourselves look good
You didn’t rise from the grave to keep me safe
You gave it all so that I could do the same

You came to seek and to save, a rebel heart, a wayward slave
so let me live a life worthy of Your name

You didn’t die so that I could follow all the rules
You didn’t bleed so that we could make ourselves look good
You didn’t rise from the grave to keep me safe
You gave it all so that I could do the same
