01. Small Rebellions

The Shelter
by Jars of Clay



 

God of the break and shatter
Hearts in every form still matter
In our weakness help us see
That alone we’ll never be
Lifting any burdens off our shoulders

If our days could be filled with small rebellions
Senseless brutal acts of kindness from us all
If we stand between the fear and firm foundation
Push against the current and the fall, the current and the fall

God of the worn and tattered
All of your people matter
Give us more than words to speak
‘Cause we are hearts and arms that reach
And Love climbs up and down the human ladder

Give us days to be filled with small rebellions
Senseless brutal acts of kindness from us all
If we stand between the fear and firm foundation
Push against the current and the fall, the current and the fall

We will never walk alone again
No, we will never walk alone again
No, we will never walk alone again

Behind the Song:
CHARLIE LOWELL: May our small, daily protests to the chaos define us as those who choose love over fear and judgment. A prophetic song of hope paired with action.

DAN HASELTINE: Any act that fights against isolation is the greatest form of counterculture. The greatest risks we take are the ones that prove we are implicated in each others stories.

STEVE MASON: This song celebrates the courage it takes as a community to change the lives of those around us with a subversive love.

MATT ODMARK: For those willing to adventure into the confinements of intentional relationship will find a richness missing from even the most charmed of lives.
