Day 12 of the 30 Day Christian Music Summer ChallengeIn light of recent events in our nation, I’ve made a change to my 30 day challenge line up and feel that this song “Cease Fire” from for King and Country featured in the upcoming film Ben Hur is perfect to relay the tragic happenings in our nation. This should our Anthem song based on this past weeks current events.

“Cease Fire”

How do we save a life
Pointing fingers?
How can we end the fight
This way?
When blame is the truth we’re preaching?
And lies are what we’re believing?
No one ever wins
When the goal is to settle the score

One by one we will call for a ceasefire
One by one we will fight for a better end
One by one we could rewrite the headlines
Standing side by side
One by one, love is building an empire
One by one, reaching out to our enemies
One by one we will make it to the finish line
Standing side by side
Ceasefire

I will be the first to say
I’m far from perfect
But grace was made for those who don’t
Deserve it
So easy to cast the first stone
It’s harder to search your own soul
No one ever wins
When the goal is to settle the score

One by one we will call for a ceasefire
One by one we will fight for a better end
One by one we could rewrite the headlines
Standing side by side
One by one, love is building an empire
One by one, reaching out to our enemies
One by one we will make it to the finish line
Standing side by side
(2x)
Ceasefire

[Bridge: Luke]
Teach us how to live humbly
Love unconditionally
Transform our hurt into hope
And grant us Your peace
(2x)

[Chorus: Joel]
One by one we will call for a ceasefire
One by one we will fight for a better end
One by one we could rewrite the headlines
Standing side by side
One by one, love is building an empire
One by one, reaching out to our enemies
One by one we will make it to the finish line
Standing side by side
(2x)
Ceasefire
