Pickin' Out Bones (I Thess 5:21)

You can take his high opinions
(or) You can leave them all behind
You can take his social theories
(or) You can give them all no mind
But when it comes to the bible
The real truth comes through just fine
To discern the gospel message
Means that Jesus still can shine

Chorus:
Pickin' out bones
Checkin' truth like fish exposed
Pickin' out bones
Seek the Word that God disclosed
Pickin' out bones
Sort the catch just as it should
Pickin' out bones
Take a hold on to the good
Pickin' out bones

You know, some were for Apollos
And then, some were more for Paul
There were preachers seeking glory
And then, some felt least of all
But the Word of God was published
Though some men had 'dropped the ball'
So, our God was given glory
And the people heard God's call

(chorus)

Bridge:
In a land across the ocean
Some two thousand years ago
Was a preacher that had started this good news
And he preached it to the poor
And he healed the blind and lame
And he promised to those who believe
A heart that flows with -
Streams of living water flowing,
Streams of living water flowing

Some wear wide and bright suspenders
And a bow tie to impress
They're so full of all their stories
Pardon them if they digress
But the Spirit even shows then
Without words that can express
When the aim of the whole sermon
Is to equip and to bless

(chorus)

Outro (tag):
So, do all you can to God's glory
And leave all the results to - Jesus
