Clear The Stage


Clear the stage and set the sound and lights ablaze

If that's the measure you must take to crush the idols

Jerk the pews & all the decorations, too 

Until the congregations few, then have revival

Tell your friends that this is where the party ends 

Until you're broken for your sins, you can't be social

Then seek the Lord & wait for what He has in store 

And know that great is your reward so just be hopeful


'Cause you can sing all you want to

Yes, you can sing all you want to

You can sing all you want to

And still get it wrong;
worship is more than a song


Take a break from all the plans that you have made 

And sit at home alone and wait for God to whisper

Beg Him please to open up His mouth and speak

And pray for real upon your knees until they blister

Shine the light on every corner of your life

Until the pride and lust and lies are in the open

Then read the Word and put to test the things you've heard 

Until your heart and soul are stirred and rocked and broken

'Cause you can sing all you want to

Yes, you can sing all you want to

You can sing all you want to

And still get it wrong; worship is more than a song

We must not worship something that's not even worth it

Clear the stage, make some space for the One who deserves it


'Cause I can sing all I want to

Yes, I can sing all I want to 
I can sing all I want to

And still get it wrong

And you can sing all you want to

Yes, you can, you can sing all you want to

You can sing all you want to

And still get it wrong; worship is more than a song
Worship is more than a song
Worship is more than a song
Clear the stage and set the sound and lights ablaze

If that's the measure you must take to crush the idols

This song is really... truthful. The truth does hurt sometimes. And these words can hurt, it pierced into my soul, opening it to reality. Worship is more than a song, it's a way of life. Church is more than a stage, its a body. And I believe that God will continue the work that He has started! (That's His promise.) I pray that our youth will have a soul that is stirred and rocked and broken, especially this week as we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ! It is a time to dwell on the fact that Jesus payed the price for my sin and I can be made into a new creation only through His power! Be blessed.
