05. Foolishness

Sunday!
by Tree63



 

What wisdom hangs a man up on a tree
As the only way to end my misery?
What kind of thinking made the way to heaven hard –
A crooked journey down a straight and narrow path?




CHORUS
How can I make sense of this?

I am living in God’s foolishness

All the money and the power and the cleverness
Of this world, defeated by foolishness
Foolish things shame the kings

What wisdom puts the prophet in a desert place
Nobody to hear a single word he says?
And what wisdom brings reward from suffering
Where if I want to win I have to lose everything?

CHORUS

Cool water from a rock – salvation from a Nazarene
Dethroned for the unloved – a cross in the heart of God

CHORUS

I reasoned myself to death but
I was saved by foolishness
All my big ideas made such a mess
But I’m clean now, saved from foolishness
Foolish things made a king from a fool




Behind the Song:
"“Foolishness” is a meditation on the “foolishness of God.” Paul talks about the apparent reversal of priorities in God’s kingdom, and that it is the “foolishness” of God which has led to mankind’s salvation. This is one of my better lyrics, if I say so myself." - John Ellis (Tree 63)
