01. Moving To Zion

Nightlights
by Jimmy Needham



 

I was born on the mountain of Sinai / Made my home on the old stubborn hill / Spent my life and these times always runnin' / And Iím runnin' still / There were four men that lived up above me / There were six more that lived down below / And I hated all ten / ĎCause they just told me the mess Iís in / thatís when I knew I had to go // So, now Iím moving, moving to Zion / Where thereís rest for these weary bones / Oh, there on that mountain Iíll be rejoicin' / 'Cause in Jesus I will find my home // I was raised up by Daddy Moses / And you know Iím the bondwomanís son / And my family ainít no bed of roses / So I have to find a new one / Well, I found Grace she became my mother, yes she did / And her daughter is Faith in the One / And that girl took me in like her brother / And we've only just begun /// These thunder stormings and trumpet warnings / Will not scare me at all this time / 'Cause I'm moving to Zion / Where the Lamb and the Lion reside

Behind the Song:
"Being a fan of allegory, a song like this was a must-write for me. Iíve been working on the concept for a long time. ďMoving to ZionĒ is about my journey away from the pressures of the Law toward the grace that is in Christ Jesus. I was finally able to finish it after I read a wonderful sermon by Charles Spurgeon called ďLaw & Grace.Ē Thanks Chuck!" - Jimmy Needham
