Song of the South: Stained Glass

The call to see ourselves as ones who bear the image of Christ, having been shaped by Christ, surrounded and filled by Christ, is for me beautifully pictured by the song “Stained Glass” by Keith Green. May it invite you to see yourself in Christ and filled by Christ. As we learn to participate with the Christ presence within us and all around us, we truly can begin to shine as lights as Green imagines in this song.
Your progressive redneck preacher,

Micah

Stained Glass, by Keith Green
We are like windows
Stained with colors of the rainbow
Set in a darkened room
Till the bridegroom comes to shining through

Then the colors fall around our feet
Over those we meet
Covering all the gray that we see
Rainbow colors of assorted hues
Come exchange your blues
For His love that you see shining through me

We are His daughters and sons
We are the colorful ones
We are the kids of the King
Rejoice in everything

My colors grow so dim
When I start to fall away from Him
But up comes the strongest wind
That he sends to blow me back into his arms again

And then the colors fall around my feet
Over those I meet
Changing all the gray that I see
Rainbow colors of the Risen Son
Reflect the One
The One who came to set us all free

We are His daughters and sons
We are the colorful ones
We are the kids of the King
Rejoice in everything

We are like windows
Stained with colors of the rainbow
No longer set in a darkened room
Cause the bridegroom wants to shine from you

No longer set in a darkened room
Cause the bridegroom wants to shine from you
