The Circus
This world’s a circus;
It’s chaos everywhere.
The ticket’s not worth it;
It costs needless pain to bear.
Tell me why
We take the time
To look to the side
And get pulled into this life
All this world has is
“Show us what you’re made of,
And we might throw you peanuts,
Then tell you to leave us.”
This circus is all a lie…

Oh, Father!
Make our paths straight and take us home.
We’re dependent on Your grace to remind us
and let us know
That at the end of the tunnel,
We’ll look into Your eyes
And in the brilliance of Your majesty,
I bet we’ll wonder why
We ever settled for the circus…

We know it’s worthless,
But still we feel the pull
Of every ring in the circus,
Telling us it’s wonderful
But tell me why
That Jesus Christ
Would come give His life
And miraculously rise,
If all this time,
We were doing just fine,
And He didn’t need to die
To save us from this life,
But He saved us for a reason…
