LAND OF THE LIVING
(Nori Kelley)

Waiting around, staying afloat
Don't make a sound, don't rock the boat
Why should I go? It's easier to stay
The status is quo, these chains are okay
It's not a time to be fearful
It's not a time to stand still
But it's a time to move forward
It's a time to climb over that hill

Welcome to the land of the living
A place where those tired of dying go
Those there know the power of forgiving
Where peace, love and joy overflows, ooh

Things they might do, things they might say
It's all up to you at the end of the day
Ready or not, the future starts here
So give it a shot, put it in gear
It's not a time to be sleeping
It's not a time to throw stones
But it's a time to shape up
And a time to call forth the dry bones

Pull up your boot straps, the road might get rough
Put on your big boy pants, His grace is enough

Pull up your boot straps, the road might get rough
Put on your big girl pants, His grace is enough

Welcome to the land of the living
A place where those tired of dying go
Those there know the power of forgiving
Where peace, love and joy overflows
Welcome to the land of the living
Where it's harder than anyone knows
But those there know the power of forgiving
Where peace, love and joy overflows

The title is from Psalm 27:13. This is a song about moving forward. Dedicated to my good friend Michael Bynum & Vineyard Recovery Church, and to all who are in Celebrate Recovery around the world. Each one of us who are followers of Jesus Christ are actually in recovery - from sickness caused by sin and the wrong choices we've made - we all need help from the Lord and one another.
