Song of the South: More Than Conquerors

Happy Easter y’all!

I hope you all have had a good Easter — had a beautiful Easter sunrise service at the church I am serving, followed by quality family time.   I hope later in the week to share my sermons from our sunrise and normal Easter services at Hanks Chapel, but I thought I would celebrate Easter with you all by sharing one of my favorite folk/Americana songs which celebrates the essential truth of Easter: that love is stronger than death and despair, and in God’s love we can be fearless in life, remembering however we might feel in the moment, through God we can be more than conquerors.

The song and lyrics, by “Man in the Ring”, are shared below.  Remember, friends, whatever you face, through Christ and God’s grace, by God’s resurrection power, you and I can be more than conquerors.

In God’s peace,

Your progressive redneck preacher,

Micah

 

Well I drove all night til I saw the city light but in the east I was not found

and my sun burned down
so I headed up north
where the snow fell long and short
in the quiet I heard a howl
and that cold wind knocked me down
we are more than conquerors
headed out into this world
bound by chains and broken down
but his love is all around
bought a ticket on the cold fire train
down south where it never rains
and all my patience
all my trust
all my dreams turned to dust
we are more than conquerors
headed out into this world
bound by chains and broken down
but his love is all around
So i guess ill fly out west
put this new love to a test
now well go where my soul leads
Bring it there to your defeat
we are more than conquerors
headed out into this world
freed from chains and strengthened now
cause his love is all around
we are more than conquerors
headed out into this world
freed from chains and strengthened now
cause his love is all around
freed from chains and stregthened now
cause his love is all around
end.
