Lyrics of Tonight... and many other Nights. (Credit: Caedmon's Call - The Truth)

I've been putting on, and putting off too many people...
And I'm getting old to live
like an injured man, ailments, and unfilled prescriptions,
like the nose on my face.
Like a broken boat, a safety raft, a love for the water.
I just can't decide...
To sink or swim, it's me or them, Should I save myself?..or go back for the others.

Cause maybe there's no gray and I was wrong to tell 'em so.
Then maybe all that I've to do was done a long time ago

There was life before my life.
Was provision before my need?
Was redemption before my sin?
For the sake of the world. I thank the Lord...That the truth's not contingent on me.

Cause I've been dressing up, and dressing down for too many people.
And I'm a little young to live.
Like a troubled boy, a troubled soul, a fish out of water.
We're all just the same!
We're all just as good, and just as bad, and just as distracted...
By the corners of our eyes!
As our fathers were, and theirs before, all those before them!
Still I glance around.

And with the way I stare you'd think I'd seen through a two-by-four.
And with the way I walk you'd think I'd never seen grace before.

There was life before my life.
Was provision before my need.
Was redemption before my sin
For the sake of the world, I thank the Lord...That the truth's not contingent on me.

I've been putting up, putting down, too many things,
That I know nothing about.
but I'm jealous of, holding pride as tight as I can
Like she was my only daughter!

Cause there was life before my life!
There was provision before my need!
There was redemption before my sin!
For the sake of the world, I thank the Lord...That the truth's not contingent on me.

No, the truth's not contingent on me.

Tonight, I praise God that His Will is above my own. That His way is true. That He controls all that which my feable hands are not capable or should not handle.

Tonight, I am thankful for His hand in everything. In my life, the lives of others. Tonight I have asked for one thing that presses my heart. And I know He will handle it. That His eyes will be where mine cannot. That his hand and spirit will be where mine cannot.

Be safe John. I will continue to pray for you, my friend. Stary though you may have, I pray that that which you experience will have an impact on you, and form you for the purpose and into the man God would have you be. I will try not to worry, and I and thankful that God knows far better what happens in this world than I.

I can't claim to understand. I know God does. And I just pray that God would be watching over you, The Holy Spirit at leading you and speaking truth into your ear.

Best wishes and 013, my brother and friend.
