Story

This is the final song in the "Excellent 11" series focusing on "Creativity."  It uses the story of Jesus and the woman caught in adultery as the foundation (John 8:1-11).  Creativity helps us see things in new ways which helps us solve seemingly unsolvable problems.

From Dust

I settled in the dust................. And everyone knew

Nothin’ more than mud.......... It was understood

Look up to the sky................... Tower’d o’er by trees

That leafy canopy.................... Roots ran so deep

 

Everyone knows...................... Everyone sees

That’s how it goes................... It was meant to be.

 

I settled for the dust................ And I never grew

Far too great the cost.............. Of seemin’ a fool

Lines drawn in the dust........... An invitation to stand

Rise above the forest.............. Claim who I am

 

Not everyone knows............... Not everyone sees

It doesn’t have to go............... It never had to be

 

Where are your accusers now?

They have all escaped...

Light breaks thru the forest boughs

And shows another way...

 

We were made from dust....... To dust we shall return

Between we rise above........... How far’s to be determined

You can shine your light.......... For everyone to see

Help someone to find.............. Help someone to lead

 

Not everyone knows............... What everyone sees

The way it tends to go        Is not the way it has to be
