Nobody Knew His Secret Ambition

David Crowder Band has remade an older Michael W. Smith song called “Secret Ambition” unlike a lot of Christian music, I actually kind of like these lyrics.

Young man up on the hillside
Teaching new ways
Each word winning them over
Each heart a kindled flame
Old men watch from the outside
Guarding their prey
Threatened by the voice of the paragon
Leading their lambs away
Leading them far away

Nobody knew His secret ambition
Nobody knew His claim to fame
He broke the old rules steeped in tradition
He tore the Holy Veil away
Questioning those in powerful position
Running to those who called His name
(But) Nobody knew His secret ambition
Was to give His life away

His rage shaking the temple
His word to the wise
His hand healing on the seventh day
His love wearing no disguise
Some say “Death to the radical
He's way out of line”
Some say “Praise be the miracle
God sends a blessed sign
A blessed sign for troubled times”
