Clear the Stage.

This song has been wrecking my heart. How much of my life is worship to God? How much of it is just for myself? Even in ministry? I want my life, in every way to reflect the heart of One who is greater…who deserves it.

Clear the stage and set the sound and lights ablaze

If that’s the measure you must take to crush the idols

Jerk the pews & all the decorations, too

Until the congregations few, then have revival


Tell your friends that this is where the party ends 

Until you’re broken for your sins, you can’t be social

Then seek the Lord & wait for what He has in store 

And know that great is your reward so just be hopeful



’Cause you can sing all you want to

Yes, you can sing all you want to

You can sing all you want to

And still get it wrong;
Oh, worship is more than a song



Take a break from all the plans that you have made 

And sit at home alone and wait for God to whisper

Beg Him please to open up His mouth and speak

And pray for real upon your knees until they blister

Shine the light on every corner of your life

Until the pride and lust and lies are in the open

Then read the Word and put to test the things you’ve heard 

Until your heart and soul are stirred and rocked and broken


‘Cause you can sing all you want to

Yes, you can sing all you want to

You can sing all you want to

And still get it wrong;
Oh, worship is more than a song


We must not worship something that’s not even worth it

Clear the stage, make some space for the One who deserves it


Anything I put before my God is an idol
Anything I want with all my heart is an idol
And anything I can’t stop thinking of is an idol
And anything that I give all my love is an idol


’Cause I can sing all I want to

Yes, I can sing all I want to

And we can sing all we want to
We can sing all we want to
We can sing all we want to

And still get it wrong

Worship is more than a song

Clear the stage and set the sound and lights ablaze

If that’s the measure you must take to crush the idols
