Rich Mullins – How To Grow Up Big And Strong lyrics
Strong man strangle universe
He drown the stars
Blinded by the mission of a thousand wars
He fit and dominant
Not wonder why
He heed the battle cry
Strong man is survivor
He live to pound
Little wooden crosses in the bloody ground
He fit and dominant
He stand a chance
He not bound to circumstance
And the world keep on turning
And the sun keep on burning
And the children keep learning
How to grow up big and strong
How to grow up big and strong
Strong man take no prisoner
Favor no plea
He leave no gold in teeth of enemy
He fit and dominant
He rise above
He not have the word that mean love
And the world keep on turning
And the sun keep on burning
And the children keep learning
How to grow up big and strong
How to grow up big and strong
Strong man beat the plowshare
He forges sword
He take the flower and he curse the thorn
He crush the serpent
He bite the fruit
His hand is absolute
And the world keep on turning
And the sun keep on burning
And the children keep learning
How to grow up big and strong
How to grow up big and strong
How to grow up big and strong
How to grow up big and strong
How to grow up big and strong
(Growing up big and strong)
(Growing up big and strong)
(Growing up big and strong)
(Growing up big and, big and strong)

    I love this song, and I think that the first two verses are describing the comic book, TV and movie heroes that children emulate, but if you notice, the music changes for the third verse and becomes softer. I think this last verse refers to Jesus, for His hand is absolute, and He curses the thorn. I don't know what could be meant by he bite the fruit, though. He is the Last Adam, so his biting the fruit is not the same context.
