"Praise the Lord" as written by and Sean Mcconnell....
I used to shake You like an 8-ball.
I used to shoot You like a gun.
I used to hold You like a hammer,
Try to nail down everyone.
I used to keep You in a steeple,
Used to bind You in a Book.
I used to take You like prescription
Without knowing what I took.
 
But now I just don't buy it anymore.
No, I've tried and I've tried to know everything for sure.
But I find I know less as I come to know You more.
You're not who I thought You were,
Praise the Lord.
 
Your love's an ocean, not a river;
A symphony, not just a song.
I don't think everybody's right;
I just think most of us were wrong.
I think that when we get to Heaven,
We're gonna laugh when we can see
How hard we try to make it
And how easy it should be.
 
And so I just don't buy it anymore.
No, I've tried and I've tried to know everything for sure.
But I find I know less as I come to know You more.
You're not who I thought You were,
Praise the Lord.
 
Providence is endless.
Mercy is a mystery.
And fear is no good reason
To believe in anything.
 
So I just don't buy it anymore.
No, I've tried and I've tried to know everything for sure.
But I find I know less as I come to know You more.
You're not who I thought You were,
Praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord.
