I discovered some song lyrics I wrote a few years after that when I was attending seminary in Columbia, South Carolina.
I gave the lyrics to my friend who put them to music and performed the song at a chapel service. We had been studying the prophets in one of our classes, and I decided to write a song summarizing one of the theme's of the prophets the cycle of rebellion of Israel. In the second part of the song I transitioned from Old Testament Israel to modern day America. This was written and performed in 1996 so the references are dated.
Looking it over 14 years later, I am not quite sure how I feel about the song. Thought I'd give it a spin here.
