629 Have You Relinquished Your Religious Notions?

Verse 1

Today, too many people

believe in confused ways,

with too much curiosity

and desire for blessings.

Following God as a gesture,

little desire to seek life,

not seeking the true way,

no intent to gain life.


Pre-chorus

Your attitude is simply wanting

to see what will happen.


Chorus

Because you’ve not let go of your old notions,

no one among you is able to fully offer themselves up.

Even now you still worry about your own fate,

thoughts churning day and night, never letting go of it.


Verse 2

Do you think Pharisees to God

are “old men” in religion?

Aren’t you just that same

archetype in current times?

When God mentions those who measure

Him against the Bible,

do you think it’s only Bible experts

in religious circles?


Verse 3

When God speaks of those who again

nail Him to the cross,

do you think it’s only religious leaders?

Aren’t you great actors for this?

Do you think God’s words to counter

people’s notions are just to mock them?

Have you not also played

your part in these things?


Chorus

Because you’ve not let go of your old notions,

no one among you is able to fully offer themselves up.

Even now you still worry about your own fate,

thoughts churning day and night, never letting go of it.


Bridge

Are you sure your notions are few?

You’ve learned to be so clever.

You don’t talk or reveal feelings

on what you don’t understand,

but hearts of submission

and reverence aren’t within you.

You think studying and waiting

is the best practice today.

You’ve learned to be too clever.

Don’t you realize it’s just craftiness?

Do you think a moment of cunning

will free you from chastisement forever?


Chorus

Because you’ve not let go of your old notions,

no one among you is able to fully offer themselves up.

Even now you still worry about your own fate,

thoughts churning day and night, never letting go of it.
