Song for the times: I’d Never Lie to You

Perhaps my favorite Christian song ever written is Never Lie by Daniel Brindley (brother of Luke Brindley, who is a lyrical force in his own right).  I’m not actually sure if it was titled Never Lie or not because I got it from the artist himself when we roomed on the same floor my freshman year of Wheaton.  Just a ton of heart and talent and the lyrics have never been more relevant in the rule we seem to be under now.  You can listen to the song below or download it here.

Lyrics:

because I need to
I will follow
I will be there
the sound of your all mighty voice
I’ll be your servant by choice

because I need to
all my painting
my creating
I must surrender to you
lies to be known what’s true

come sit by me, my good faithful servant
I’m your king it’s true, but I’ll be your lover too
I’d never lie to you
I’d never lie to you

because I need to
I will bow down
make a pleasant sound
to you who are all full of light
sent out the call to arise, arise, arise, arise

come sit by me, my good faithful servant
I’m your king it’s true, but I’ll be your lover too
I’d never lie to you
I’d never lie to you

come sit by me, my good faithful servant
I’m your king it’s true, but I’ll be your lover too
I’d never lie to you
I’d never lie to you
