The prophetic voice of Martyn Joseph

Literally after publishing that last post, Martyn Joseph’s song “Change your World” came on shuffle. And might heart smiled as it took in these words that for me at least were filled with God’s love, beauty and grace in my life. I love my Lord and Saviour – only God knows how to speak deeply into my heart to fill me with tremendous feeling of being completely and utterly loved in my humanity and sinfulness.

Are you down to your last ray of hope

Well they say that’s the moment things turn around

Don’t you give up the fight you can cope

You can be so amazingly strong

And you can’t let go

You have come so far

And I know that it’s been rough

But your patience has to pay

And it can’t be soon enough

And if I could have my way

I would change your world

I’d change it right away

Are you down to your last drop of love?

Even so you should give it away

Let it sail with your dreams to the sun

And return to you laden with promise

And you can’t let go

I won’t let you fall

And I know that it’s been rough

But your patience has to pay

And it can’t be soon enough

And if I could have my way

I would change your world

I’d change it right away

And you’re tired of chasing love?

‘Cos it never seems to stay

And it can’t be soon enough

And if I could have my way

I would change your world

I’d change it right away

Are you down to your last weary smile?

So put it on now, and wear it with dignity

It’s time to walk one more mile

Very soon there are going to be changes

And I know that it’s been rough

But your patience has to pay

And it can’t be soon enough

And if I could have my way

Yes I know that it’s been rough

But your patience has to pay

And it can’t be soon enough

And if I could have my way

I would change your world

Change it right away

I would change your world

There would not be a delay

I would change your world

I’d change it right away
