04. When God Speaks

In The Offing
by Overseer

       
Lyrics:

To be honest the straight and narrow’s been the road I’ve strive to follow and
The road on which I’ve found myself alone
God there, through Holy Spirit, is coupled with the rocks and grit of stress, distress, and weariness of heart

But then God speaks and heaven rumbles
The earth gives way like rolling thunder as the living Lord sends peace upon His child
And when the words come, through heart’s conviction, though I’m quite aware of my frail condition
I am brought into the sanctum of His love, and the friendship with my God

Oh, the new day comes with promises as that same sun says “hello” again
And I marvel at its strength to burn so strong
The revelation of reality of Earth sets in, and unfortunately
I’m discouraged by my failure to rise above

God came down as a humble man through Jesus Christ, His perfect son
The servant of the criminal and lame
Crucifixion day the Savior took the form of any other crook
He was beaten, battered, and where was God today?

Well, God was quiet and heaven trembled, Jesus’ eyes were tears and tremors
He knew He’d find no heavenly hope today
“Oh, eloi, eloi, where is Your touch? I know you love them so very much,
But my blood spills fast, my life is leaving me for their friendship with You, God”

He’s happy for all, He rejoices in His victory o’er the fall
But Christ would have no victory and death nothing due
If God didn’t see the last of His plan through

And so God spoke and heaven resounded,
Said, “Satan, man, get to the ground; oh, Christ my son, get up and breathe again!”
The stone heard the call and saw daybreak, smiled and laughed and rolled away
To show the world salvation through the One, the resurrected son
