The Simple Life

Living life can be hard today, I have to say it's so,
But I have learned if I stop and pray
I get the grace to go.
And I have found by slowing down
I have more time to live the simple life

The simple life. All free from strife.
So glad that I have found the simple life.

Living life in the passing lane, it's near insane to me;
'Cause soon your life will be washed away
By the pouring rain to the sea.
But I have found by slowing down
I have more time to live the simple life

The simple life. All free from strife.
So glad that I have found the simple life.

The simple life is the way to go though the pace is slow for some,
But I'll have peace in my heart to show
when the race of life is done.
For I have found by slowing down
I have more time to live the simple life

The simple life. All free from strife.
So glad that I have found the simple life.

STORY BEHIND THIS SON...

''Tis a gift to be simple... So the old hymn goes.

It is possible to have peace in the midst of today's hectic pace, but it requires some "adjustments". We need to slow down and make time for prayer and contemplation. This will likely require a re-ordering of our priorities and a letting go of some of our unnecessary pursuits and goals, but the reward is well worth it.

Jesus said, "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and you shall find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light."

Matthew 11:28-30

In writing Christian music,
lyrics have to be
the heartbeat of the song.
After all, it is the lyrics
that primarily distinguish Christian music
from secular music.
It's not the only mark
of distinction,
but it is
the most important.
