The End of the Beginning

I wanted to share this much needed inspirational music today. Lyrics are underneath the video. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zqPfHuQVFg?rel=0]

I was takin’ a trip on a plane the other day

just wishin’ that I could get out

When the man next to me saw the book in my hand

and asked me what it was about

So I settled back in my seat

a best seller I said

a history, a mystery in one

and then I opened up the book and began to read

from Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John

He was born of a virgin one holy night

in the little town of Bethlehem

angels gathered round him underneath the stars

singing praises to the great I Am

He walked on the water, healed the lame, and made the blind to see again

and for the first time here on earth we learned that God could be a friend

and though he never ever did a single thing wrong

the angry crowd chose him and then he walked down the road

and died on the cross and that was the end of the beginning

That’s not a new book that’s a bible he said and I’ve heard it all before

I’ve tried religion its shame and guilt and I don’t need it anymore

It’s superstition made up tales and just to help the weak to survive

Let me read it again I said listen closely, this is gonna change your life

He was born of a virgin one holy night

in the little town of Bethlehem

angels gathered round him underneath the stars

singing praises to the great I Am

He walked on the water, healed the lame, and made the blind to see again

and for the first time here on earth we learned that God could be a friend

and though he never ever did a single thing wrong

the angry crowd chose him and then he walked down the road

and died on the cross and that was the end of the beginning

The end of the beginning he said with a smile

what more could there be? He’s dead.

you said they hung him put nails in his hands

and a crown of thorns on his head

I said I'll read it again but this time there’s more

and I believe that this is true

his death wasn’t the end, the beginning of life

that’s completed in you

don’t you see he did all this for you!

He was born of a virgin one holy night

in the little town of Bethlehem

all the angels singing praises to the great I Am

He walked on the water, healed the lame, and made the blind to see

and for the first time here on earth did you know that God could be a friend

and though he never did a single thing wrong

he was the one the crowd chose and then he walked, and he died,

but three days later, three days later, three days later, HE ROSE!!!!!!!!

three days later HE ROSE!!!!!!!!

You see he came, he lived, and he died

but that was the end of the beginning
