Fool For You by Nichole Nordeman

In those times when you can’t seem to make sense of it all. Times when doubt dances in delight as logic labors to rule your life. Times when the deceiver doesn’t want to desist. Times when faith falters and almost fails as reason rises to reign…. At such times, songs such as this one remind me about what matters most: That I should be grateful, not surprised, when circumstances require me to be a fool for the one who became a fool for me.

Be encouraged by these lyrics to the beautiful song by Nichole Nordeman from the album: This Mystery:

FOOL FOR YOU

There are times when faith and common sense do not align,

when hardcore evidence of you is hard to find,

and I am silenced in the face of argumentative debate,

It’s a long hill it’s a lonely climb.

Maybe it’s true.

CHORUS:

Cause they want proof,

They want proof of all these mysteries I claim,

Cause only fools would want to chant a dead man’s name.

I would be a fool for you all because you asked me to.

A simpleton who’s seeming naive,

I do believe You came and made Yourself a fool for me.

.

I admit that in my darkest hours I’ve asked what if,

What if we created some kind of man-made faith like this,

Out of good intentions or emotional invention,

and after life is through there will be no You.

CHORUS:

Cause they want proof of all these miracles I claim,

Cause only fools believe that men can walk on waves.

Maybe it’s true.

I would be a fool for you all because you asked me to.

A simpleton who’s seeming naive,

I do believe You came and made Yourself a fool for me.

.

Unaware of popularity,

and unconcerned with dignity,

You made me free.

That’s proof enough for me.

.

I would be a fool for You,

Only if You asked me to,

A simpleton who’s only think of,

The cause of love.

.

I will speak Jesus name,

and if that makes me crazy,

they can call me crazed,

I’m happy to be seemingly naive,

I do believe You came and

made Yourself a fool for me.

.

“God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him.It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”” [1 Cor 1:27-31]

For the fame of His name,

Cornell
