Modern Music at its best

Today I have a song offering for you...most modern day music misses so much of the doctrines and majesty of Christ but this song hits the nail on the head. ..This is a youth pastor covering the song and he does an excellent job although the "senior pastor" at the end brings a bit of humanism into the message (just disregard that).

I Repent by Derek Webb
i repent of my pursuit of America's dream
i repent of living like i deserve anything
my house, my fence, my kids, and my wife in our suburb
where we're safe and white i am wrong
and of these things i repent

i repent of parading my liberty
i repent of paying for what i get for free
the way i believe that i am living right
by trading sins for others that are easier to hide
i am wrong and of these things i repent i repent

judging by a law that even i can't keep
wearin righteousness like a disguise to see through
the planks in my own eyes

i repent of trading truth for false unity
i repent of confusing peace and idolatry
of caring more of what they think than what i know of what they need
and domesticating You until You look just like me
i am wrong and of these things i repent
