Show's Over

Depression + Gospel = Joy in Jesus

I love the real, gut level honesty in this song. The third verse and last chorus are particularly stirring.

Verse 3:
I can’t perform no more
Can’t do these chores no more
I’m feeling like I’m sick, it’s silly so I quit
That’s it, I just can’t try to please the Lord no more
‘Cause really I’m sick of trying to make Him like me more
‘Cause every day I got a fight in store
I’m guilty so when I play I never like to score
No good in me and I’m sick of my plight I’m poor
They told me homie the Christian life is better
But they said to be holy and perform for His pleasure
But now I’m feelin’ torn cause the Lord is my treasure
But I fall and feel scorned when I can’t get it together
But then something clicked, it’s crazy I ignored this
But even when I slip, this ain’t based on my performance
Christ was equipped, ran the race with endurance
When His flesh was hit, His righteousness was my assurance

Last Chorus:
I know them chains had me trapped for a while
That’s in my past, I’m relaxed in Him now
Christ my Savior He cracked through the clouds
Did it perfect, listen to the claps from the crowd
