Embracing Accusations March 5, 2008

I’m a big Shane & Shane fan. I have all of their albums and have seen them in concert several times. I love their lyrics and the harmonies of their voices together just sends me to a whole other place. This song is one of those. When I listen to it I feel like I can do anything. The song is encouraging, haunting, and it blesses me every time I listen to it.

If you haven’t heard of Shane & Shane, browse around iTunes for their stuff. You won’t be disappointed. 

Here’s the lyrics:

The father of lies, coming to steal kill and destroy
All my hopes of being good enough.
I hear him saying, “cursed are the ones who can’t abide.”

He’s right, hallelujah, he’s right.

The devil is preaching the song of the redeemed,
That I am cursed and gone astray.
I cannot gain salvation
Embracing accusation.

Could the father of lies be telling the truth of
God to me tonight?
That if the penalty of sin is death, then death is mine.
I hear him saying, “cursed are the ones who can’t abide.”

He’s right, hallelujah, he’s right.

The devil is preaching the song of the redeemed,
That I am cursed and gone astray.
I cannot gain salvation
Embracing accusation.

The devil’s singing over me an age old song
That I am cursed and gone astray.
Singing the first verse so conveniently over me,
He’s forgotten the refrain…
Jesus saves!
