Thee Way,Thee Truth, & Thee Life


God's Own Fool
written by Michael Card

It seems I've imagined Him all of my life
The wisest of all of mankind
But if God's holy wisdom is foolish to man 1
He must have seemed out of His mind

For even His family said He was mad 2
And the priests said a demon's to blame 3
But God in the form of this angry young man
Could not have seemed perfectly sane

When we in our foolishness thought we were wise
He played the fool and He opened our eyes
When we in our weakness believed we were strong
He became helpless to show we were wrong

And so we follow God's own fool
For only the foolish can tell
Believe the unbelievable
Come be a fool as well 4

So come lose your life for a carpenter's son
For a mad man who died for a dream
And you'll have the faith His first followers had
And you'll feel the weight of the beam

So surrender the hunger to say you must know
Have the courage to say "I believe"
For the power of paradox opens your eyes
And blinds those who say they can see 5

When we in our foolishness thought we were wise
He played the fool and He opened our eyes
When we in our weakness believed we were strong
He became helpless to show we were wrong

And so we follow God's own fool
For only the foolish can tell
Believe the unbelievable
Come be a fool as well 6

And so we follow God's own fool
For only the foolish can tell
Believe the unbelievable
Come be a fool as well 7
