Truth Lives On

I was thinking about the marriage issue today. I don't like the term "traditional marriage" because it's not just our tradtion. It is a centuries old, universal custom. Instead of using that term, I've decided to call the new definition that is being pushed on us "Neo-marriage" from now on. 

As I was expressing my frustration to God this morning about this issue, He brought to mind these words: 

"When the swine are the ones who steal the pearls
From the human oysters of the western world...
ALL IS NOT LOST. TRUTH LIVES ON." 

These lyrics come from probably my favorite album of all time, ever. Although it's almost 30 years old, I listen to Mark Heard's album, Mosaics, several times a year. 

Truth won't change, no matter how unpopular it becomes. 


All Is Not Lost - Mark Heard © 1984 Kenwood Music 


When civilization takes a nasty turn
And concepts are hushed when books are burned
All is not lost

All is not lost

When swine are the ones who steal the pearls
From the human oysters of the western world

All is not lost
All is not lost 

TRUTH LIVES ON
TRUTH LIVES ON
TRUTH LIVES ON 

When beauty seems beaten by the callous beasts 
And it looks like it will be 'cause history repeats 
All is not lost
All is not lost 

You can still see grace in the children's eyes 
And this planet's face still gladdens the wise
All is not lost
All is not lost 

TRUTH LIVES ON TRUTH LIVES ON 

When the hand of man becomes inept 
And sketches the truth in silhouette 
All is not lost
All is not lost 

The hand of God has not worked in vain
And this globe is fodder for the feeblest brain
All is not lost
All is not lost 

TRUTH LIVES ON 
TRUTH LIVES ON 
TRUTH LIVES ON
