Lion of Judah – Treasure

Latest song from Lion of Judah (3 of whom are at Christ Church) – recorded at University of East Anglia Christian Union outreach event.

Lyrics are below the video

 

Can I buy my way out of this mess,
All I need is my happiness,
Can I get that delivered to my address?

Cause there’s a longing in my soul,
Consumer culture to fill the hole,
If only I jumped up the payroll,

And I’m building up my home,
I think I choose the wrong corner stone,
Cause none of these things make me feel less alone,

And I need your grace to find my way back,
Cause my perspective here is under attack,
Have I been living like there’s only one life,
Have I been building up my tower so high,

Is there something that I care about more,
Is there something else I’m living for,
Can you remind me that this isn’t my home,
That all my treasure is in you alone,

The boss says work gives you context,
I’m unsatisfied with the concept,
Of living for work or the weekend,
So go make another transaction,
I figure that’s a distraction,
From finding true satisfaction in Christ alone,

I think I might be in danger,
I’m called to live as a stranger,
I beginning to feel like I might be too at home,
Spirit open up my eyes,
Dwell in me renew my mind,
As I seek that I may find all in you,

And I need your grace to find my way back,
Cause my perspective here is under attack,
Have I been living like there’s only one life,
Have I been building up my tower so high,

Is there something that I care about more,
Is there something else I’m living for,
Can you remind me that this isn’t my home,
That all my treasure is in you alone
