Michael Card – What Will It Take lyrics

(To keep you from Jesus)
Michael Card

What will it take to keep you from Jesus
Keep you from heeding His call
The simple excuse of a heart that is hard
A reason that's nothing at all

And there was a man who was owned by his money
He was as rich as could be
But deep in his heart was a voice that was crying
Telling him he wasn't free
When he questioned the Master
Concerning his problem
The answer took his breath away
For his money had come to mean more than his soul
Forever would stand in his way

Chorus
What will it take to keep you from Jesus
Keep you from heeding His call
The simple excuse of a heart that is hard
A reason that's nothing at all
And how long before you stop with your reasons
Take your defenses away
It's only a lie that keeps you from following
Don't let it stand in your way

So many excuses and so many lies
Are blocking the Light and the Way
But the final decision to follow the Lord
Can shatter and blow them away

Once there was one who was lame in his body
Sick in his body and soul
Though he didn't know all the facts about Jesus
He knew that he longed to be whole
So with some of his friends
He went seeking and found him
So many stood in their way
So they tore through the roof
And they lowered him down
For nothing could keep him away

Chorus
