Barnabas

Gospel Maniac

Play

Let's be honest and tell the truth
I'm far from perfect, and so are you
A couple skeletons under the bed
The carnal nature not always dead

But that doesn't mean you have to give up and die
It's time to take care of business
Time to stand up and fight
And when the world, the flesh and the devil attack
You say "back off, Jack -- I'm a Gospel Maniac!"

Grace under pressure; pressure under grace
With good intent they shove the Word in your face
Don't get excited; cool your jets
And don't forget your Christian etiquette

But don't ever think you're worse than the rest
You're not competing in a holiness contest
And when you feel your armor starting to crack
Pick up the slack -- you're a Gospel Maniac

You fight -- to understand
You fight -- to gain command
You fight -- with bloodied hands
You fight -- but you don't always make it

You're loved by the King, and the King is coming back
So get up and shout -- you're a Gospel Maniac

Let's be honest and tell the truth
We're far from perfect -- so sad but true
A couple skeletons under the bed
The carnal nature not always dead

But that doesn't mean you have to die in your sin
You have need of repentance -- let the Spirit come in
The Father adores you; He won't turn His back
The Son is your Brother -- you're a Gospel Maniac
