Only Lyrics

Words and music by Shaun Groves

Send the armies and darkest hours
Every flag, every sword and power
I will never turn
I will never turn
No, no, I will never turn from You
Take the lives of our sons and daughters
Lead me out like a lamb to slaughter
I will never turn
I will never turn
No, no, I will never turn from you

Only your name's on my soul
Only your cross left to hold
Only your love's in my veins
Only for your fame

Let a kiss from the world seduce me
Warm my skin with a touch (and) confuse me
I will never turn
I will never turn
No, no, I will never turn from You

Repeat Chorus 2X

Bridge x3:
I'm not giving in
Not selling out
Not giving up
Not bowing down

Repeat Chorus x2 w/ bridge:

Leave me lonely abused and battered
All the pieces of my world scattered
I will never turn
I will never turn
No, no I will never turn from You

Story Behind The Song:
MATTHEW 5:8 "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God."

"Blessed are the pure in heart," Jesus continues. Righteousness is tied not only to showing mercy but also to the motives and inclination of the mercy-shower's heart. If I do good to look good, I'm not righteous, I'm selfish. I'm divided between benevolence and applause. I'm allegiant to my approval rating, the smiles of the religious and not to God alone. I am trying to serve two masters and not satisfying either.

The psalmist sang, "Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully (Psalm 24:3-4).

If our oath to follow Jesus all the days of our life is meant, then it will move us to obey Him with merciful hands and peace-speaking tongues. It will cause us to pledge allegiance to no man or institution on earth knowing that nations fall and rulers crawl before His throne. He is our only King. But if we are merely religious and not yet disciples of Christ, we will promise God our lives and our all but remain allegiant to the world around us. We will be tied to our love of nation, prosperity, work, denomination, practicality and comfort and become so strapped down by these loves that we're no longer able to wiggle a hand free to serve someone else. We become so gagged by lesser things that we no longer speak out for the oppressed and stand up for justice and peace.
