04. Buy the Truth

The Sleeping House
by Cool Hand Luke



 

If I had a dime for every dollar Iíve wasted trying to be happy
I could retire because I would be miserably wealthy
Then Iíd have the time to see that Iíd thrown out my life like the paper
And maybe the time by Godís grace to start it all over and

Buy the Truth
Though it costs all you have (Proverbs 4:7)
Buy the truth
Donít ever sell it out
What good is a tool in the hand of a fool if you donít buy wisdom?
(Proverbs 17:16)

If I sold You out, I could make enough money to live for a while
Walk in the room and important people would smile
Hold my head proud, and know I had made the best business decision
Wave at the crowds who give me their money like it was religion

Buy the Truth
Though it costs all you have
Buy the truth
Donít ever sell it out
What good is a tool in the hand of a fool if you donít buy wisdom?

Please, donít make yourself at home
Please, donít make yourself at home
Please, donít make yourself at home
Please, donít make yourself at home
The Land of opportunity
And superficiality
Syncretized theology
A compromised reality

God, touch our eyes
Expose the lies
That waste our lives
And block the light
A future hope (Proverbs 24:14)
That weíll wake up
And see the Truth for whatís itís worth

Buy the Truth
Though it costs all you have
Buy the truth
Donít ever sell it out
What good is a tool in the hand of a fool if you donít buy wisdom?




Behind the Song:
"I wrote this song about my frustration with how quick we are to sell the Truth to be liked and to be comfortable. Those of us who are in Christ did not come to him because we thought it would be popular or make us money. We didnít come to him for worldly status and power. We would not have gone to the foot of the cross for that. We went because in Christ we find Truth, life, hope, love, grace, redemption, salvation, and an infinite number of things that we have no means to gain on our own. Somewhere along the way, many of us have forgotten our first love. Many would sell the Truth for thirty pieces of silver if it meant we could increase our comfort. But who do you know who is happy when they get there? Who really cares? We spend our lives trying to convince other people , who we donít really care about, that we are importantóthat we donít have problems.

We could find true joy spending our lives for the sake of the poor, the destitute, the foreigners, the widows, the orphansófor Christ. I urge you to see that Truth is far more valuable than what will be offered you in exchange for it." - Mark Nicks (Cool Hand Luke)
