Song of the Day: Rock N Worship Circus - Gift of Cool

By in Articles, Song of The Day | No Comments

This band formed from a church worship band. They were one of the first modern rock worship bands I think. They had a tight modern rock sound & had songs on Christian edgier radio stations including Ride, Undiscovered. They have since changed their name to The Listening. Gabe Wilson has worked with many musical endeavors over the years also.

These lyrics are awesome!

I remember the day
When the love of God landed in our town
He took all the silent and broken hearts
And fixed them up and gave them a sound

He had almost every different kind of kid
From every different kind of social background
Taking all the cool they had and praising God
As He spun them around, it’s when God came to town

And the people in our churches, they were constantly amazed
At the kids kneeling at the altar with their different fashion flavors
You had squares and preps and skater punks, Goths and techno-ravers
And the tattooed kids with the colored hair
And they were all getting saved

You think the sixties had good vibrations?
Well check out my generation

We will run and never stop, yeah we all will stand together
Taking everything we are, and then praising Him forever
Well anyone and everyone, come on join us for a good time
We are breaking all the rules, by praising God with your gift of cool

Suddenly almost every kid in town had finally found the way
To take all the gifts and talents and beauty they had
And worship God every day, man, you had all the high school parties
And they were turning into worship raves
And the sounds of the underground in town had turned into praise
