JFH Song Lyrics

13. Nightlights

Nightlights
by Jimmy Needham



 

Be Thou exalted over my reputation/ ĎCause applause is a poor form of soul medication / And Iíve tried it for years but my symptoms remain / Still fretting the day that theyíll misplace my name / Still selling my soul for American fame / Treating the promotion of Jesus like a well oiled machine / Advancing His kingdom just to snag some acclaim / Now, Iím both comforted and haunted that it isnít just me though / I see a nation of people needing to feed their own egos / Parading status like steeples / Do we not know itís evil to love ourselves more than both God and His people? / But see, hereís where you turn this poem on itís head / ĎCause the greatest among us came as servant instead / And You humbled Yourself to the point of Your death / Apparently love for the Fatherís glory runs red / So friends, will we point to the Son till our own flames grow dim? / Will our bright lights become merely nightlights near Him? / Words echo once, let them echo again / Be Thou exalted over my reputation

Behind the Song:
"True to form, Iíve ended another record with a spoken word. For me, itís a way of codifying the theme of the record into 2 minutes. Curious what the album is about? Go to the last track." - Jimmy Needham
