“Fool For You” by Nichole Nordeman
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 argumenative debate,
it’s a long hill it’s a lonley climb. Maybe it’s true.
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 intention or emotional invention,
and after life is through there will be no You.
Cause they want proof of all these miracles I claim,
Cause only fools believe that men can walk on waves.
Maybe it’s true.
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 thinking 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.
Yep. That about sums it up. Thank you, Kristin, for sending these lyrics to me. Thank you, Nichole Nordeman, for this song.
