about

Some of the things Jesus said are difficult to hear, and even more difficult to put into practice.

lyrics

Follow me, my yoke is easy
Follow me, my burden is light
Follow me, and truth shall free you
Follow me, receive new sight
It sounds so good, you knew it would, all the pleasant things you said
We want your peace, sweet release, we want the easy road, the wine, the bread

Follow me, and learn to fish for human souls
Follow me, leave your family and your home
Follow me, I don't bring peace, I bring a sword
Follow me, and let the dead bury their own
It sounds so odd, these words from God, so we ignore the hard things you said
We just want peace, sweet release, we want the easy road, the wine, the bread

Follow me, learn to be salt and light
Follow me, and know that hate may as well be murder
Follow me, turn the other cheek and love your enemy
Follow me, and drink the living water
It sounds absurd, these things we heard -- all those crazy things you said
We just want peace, sweet release, we want the easy road, the wine, the bread


Bridge
What should we do instead?
We should be carrying our crosses, shouldering the load
Walking with the Master down the straight and narrow road
And when we fall, and we will fall, He'll pick us up again
Carrying our crosses in our own Jerusalem


Follow me, don't be surprised when men revile you
Follow me, your wealth won't get you into Heaven
Follow me, be faithful in the small things
Follow me, forgive to be forgiven
We close our ears, don't want to hear, are we sure that's what you said?
We just want peace, sweet release, we want the easy road, the wine, the bread

Follow me, and be a good and faithful servant
Follow me, shine like a city on a hill
Follow me, worship in Spirit and Truth
Follow me, so you can really live
