Read from the Romans

(parody of "Heat of the Moment" by Asia)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: I really, really like the way this one turned out; these might be the best lyrics I've written all year. I can't say I'm the first person to set the Romans Road to music (ApologetiX did it with their parody of Bob Seger's "Old Time Rock & Roll"), but I'll put this version against anyone else's.


There's nothing righteous we could ever do.
That's what it says in Romans, and it's true.
3:23 says we are far from grace.
We all have sinned, we're miles from our God's face.

6:23 says death's our recompense
From many sins we sowed at our expense.
Eternal life's a gift from God the Son,
Though none is righteous, no, not even one.

Chorus:
We got to read from the Romans,
Showing us where Paul's heart went.
To read from the Romans, how to get wise.

Because we find no Christ in empty tomb,
The devil's hot spot has no harm for you.
5:8, discern God's love through all our sins
Because He hurt and died, the Savior King.

We got to read from the Romans,
Seek not for omens.
To read from the Romans, truth and no lies.

In 10:13, we call upon the Son
And He'll forgive us, all we've ever done.
Believe He rose and call His name yourself.
That was His mission — you, to save from Hell.

We got to read from the Romans.
That is why Jesus got sent.
Read from the Romans, your soul will survive.

We got to read from the Romans,
Be freed from the torment.
Read from the Romans, someday you'll rise. solo like 4 choruses
