THIRD DAY Thoughts: Blackbird


Blackbird, who put you in your cage? Tell me, was it God, or was it you or me? Enjoy these lyrics from THIRD DAY's song, "Blackbird."

As birds flying, so will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending, also He will deliver it; and passing over, He will preserve it (Isaiah 31:5).

Blackbird, why you wearing that frown?
Don't you know Jesus loves you and me
and the preacher on T.V. you're putting down
Blackbird, how I love to hear your songs
I could spend all of my time in the shade
of the trees and listen all day long
But you're ever hearing, never understanding
ever seeing, not perceiving and your heart
has grown callous
you're in a storm and lost your way
won't you fly to heaven and be saved today
Blackbird, now you're broken your wing
you try to fly high but you know that you
can't go anywhere, you can't do anything
Blackbird, who put you in your cage
tell me, was it God or was it you
was it me? I guess it don't matter anyway
Repeat Chorus
You say you need a remedy
for the thorn in your pride
I think it's such a tragedy
that you have left him behind
You say you'd light your candle
but your love light doesn't shine
you say you talk to angels
well I say it's such a lie
Repeat Chorus
Real Patience
Our Deliverer
He Is Alive
A Hymn of Creation Praise
A Prayer for Help
