THE STORY OF STORIES
(Nori Kelley)

The story of stories told time after time
To a world with ears turned away
They hear the kind words of love and obedience
Their heads bowed, pretending to pray
In a game of high morals they can't seem to win
They grow colder with each passing day
And like a herd of swine driven down into the sea
With the world they will be swept away

The tale of tales of a new life to come
In the back of their mind all the while
"The joke of jokes," they think to themselves
But somehow, they can't seem to smile
In hiding their faces from the truth and the light
They grow older with each passing mile
They strain out a gnat, yet swallow a camel
Failing to stand in the trial

Unless you repent
Trust His word and be saved
The price for your sin has been paid
Just repent
And come out of the shadows
His light will drive darkness away...

The day of days is surely coming
The day when He shall appear
The King of Kings in power and glory
To wipe away every tear
But on all who have failed to believe in the Way
Will fall a deep soul searching fear
"Depart from Me, I never knew you"
The truth will then be made clear

Unless you repent
Trust His word and be saved
The price for your sin has been paid
Just repent
And come out of the shadows
His light will drive darkness away
His spirit will show you the way
He separated the night from the day...
