05. Teach Us

The Golden Rule EP
by Above The Golden State


Wounded and scarred
Uncover my heart
Will You save me, Faithful Savior?
Clouded and dark
My words fall apart
Will You help me, Faithful Helper?

Where do I start to make things right?
I’m coming up short to make it by

Everybody lives, everybody loves
Everyone’s afraid to be searching alone
Does anybody hear the perfect words to say?
God, where is Your kingdom that burns in our souls?

Teach us how to pray

I come as I am
Broken again
To Your table, humbled and thankful
When I fail to believe
You’re all that I need
You save me, Faithful Savior

Where do I start to make things right?
Oh what can I do to save my life?

Teach us how to…

Love the way You loved, a piercing sweetness I can taste
Empty of myself so these words won’t die in vain
Let my life evaporate as You shine on me

Behind the Song:
"What if how we talked normally in life was how we talked to God? Would it sound different? What if our prayers weren’t full of big “Christian” words that we learned from our pastors, and instead were full of honesty? And what if we prayed recognizing that the God who made the universe, loved us so much that He gave His Son’s life to restore ours? I think we’d pray differently, powerfully, humbly, and we’d see God’s kingdom getting closer and closer to taking over our lives.” – Michael Watson (Above The Golden State)
