What If?

The lyrics that follow come from Nicole Nordeman. The song is called, "What If," and talks about the two views of Jesus. The Christian's view vs. everyone else's. This is thought provoking at the least.

What if you're right?
And he was just another nice guy
What if you're right?

What if it's true?
They say the cross will only make a fool of you
And what if it's true?

What if he takes his place in history
With all the prophets and the kings
Who taught us love and came in peace
But then the story ends
What then?

But what if you're wrong?
What if there's more?
What if there's hope you never dreamed of hoping for?
What if you jump?
And just close your eyes?
What if the arms that catch you, catch you by surprise?
What if He's more than enough?

What if it's love?

What if you dig
Way down deeper than your simple-m
inded friends
What if you dig?
What if you find
A thousand more unanswered questions down inside
That's all you find?

What if you pick apart the logic
And begin to poke the holes
What if the crown of thorns is no more
Than folklore that must be told and retold?

You've been running as fast as you can
You've been looking for a place you can land for so long
But what if you're wrong?

  1. I love the part:
    "What if you jump?
    And just close your eyes?
    What if the arms that catch you, catch you by surprise?"
    Thanks Quin! :)
