Steven Curtis Chapman – Truth Or Consequences lyrics

[Verse 1]
The TV said just make sure you're old enough
And let your feelings tell you when it's right
What went wrong? She thought it was really love
Now she wonders why she just can't sleep at night
She knew the rules but they were too old fashioned
Was it worth the price she has to pay

It's either truth or consequences, there's no other way
Put truth aside, the other takes it's place
Well, you can close your eyes but that won't make it go away
The truth or consequences must be faced

[Verse 2]
The headlines say our world's in a lot of pain
Hurt from all the selfishness and greed
What went wrong? Like sheep all have gone astray
We'll reap what we sow, don't be deceived
His truth's been given and it's there before us
Written on the page and in our hearts


As sure as God made the sun to shine
He made the rules we must all live by
He loved us too much to leave us alone
To our own devices

    This song reminds us of the somber truth, that sin bears consequences. Everyone's heard that we sow what we reap, but unfortunately, so few actually heed that wise advice. Just because the consequences for, perhaps, secret sin, seem more distant than the consequences for touching a hot surface, doesn't mean they don't exist and are not very dangerous.
