Original Song - The Thunders

Updated: Sep 13




The Thunders


Hey all! I wanted to share with you this song I wrote a while back. I was hoping to record it at some point, but I don't know when I'm going to have the time and money to dedicate to that—I've just got so much else going on in my life that it doesn't seem practical right now. That being said, I still felt a push from God to share these songs I've been sitting on for years, so here's one for you. Expect more to come!



Lyrics


I’ve never seen the seven wonders,

I’ve never sailed the seven seas,

I’ve never heard the seven thunders,

But I have reason to believe

That my body is a cell and the world is a prison,

And there’s only one escape— might as well start diggin’


I never claimed to be a wise man,

I never claimed to be a king,

I never claimed to be a prophet,

But I an proclaim what I’ve seen.

I’ve seen the dark, dark black of the life I was livin’

Until the light poured in and restored my vision.


So don’t let the world get you down

And don’t forfeit your crown

You know you’re gonna have to answer for now.

When these bodies return to the ground,

Everybody no doubt with their knees to the ground

will bow down to the sound of the thunder.


Now, I’ve been loved by the Father

See, I’ve been saved by the Son

I breathe the fire from the Holy Spirit

I never knew him when I was young,

But now my body says “jump” and my spirit doesn’t listen.

I once said “Our Love is Dead”, but now I’ve changed my position.


Our Love is Risen.


So don’t let the world get you down

And don’t forfeit your crown

You know you’re gonna have to answer for now.

When these bodies return to the ground,

Everybody no doubt with their knees to the ground

will bow down to the sound of the thunder.


One day every knee will bow down.

One day all the lost will be found.


You’re a bird in the hand,

You’re a flash in the pan,

You’re a wave on the sand,

And nobody can stand to the sound of the thunder.


Is there a lighthouse for the Kingdom?

Is there a harbor for refugees?

And will your love shine like a beacon,

Or split the sky over angry seas?

Cuz if we’re of the same body there should be no division,

Like a rainbow born of one light through a prism.
