Consider The Cost

This song is by Steve Camp and appears on the album Consider The Cost (1991).

To obey is better than sacrifice
And the hearken than the fat of rams
For what will a man give for his own life
Houses or money or land
There's a way that seems right to you
But in the end it leads only to death
But come unto Him all ye weary
Come and find your rest

Consider the cost of building a tower
It's a narrow way that you must come
For to do the will of the Father
Is to follow the Son
To love Him more than father or mother
You will love Him more than even your own flesh
To give all that you are, for all that He is
This is the gospel according to Jesus

Many will say "Lord, Lord" on that day
Look what we've done in Your name
"Oh, we've prophesied and performed many miracles
And Lord, even the demons obeyed"
Then He will will declare unto them
The most terrifying words of truth
He'll say "Depart from me ye workers of iniquity
For I have never known you!"

Consider the cost of building a tower
It's a narrow way that you must come
For to do the will of the Father
Is to follow the Son
We love Him more than father or mother
We love Him more than even your own flesh
To give all that you are, for all that He is
This is the gospel according to Jesus

Oh, foolish man, how you built on the sand
Trusting in your goodness to save
For when the rains fall and the flood breaks the wall
You will be swept away
But blessed is he who builds on the Rock
Who takes Jesus as Lord to save
For when the rain falls, he will endure it all
Standing firm in His grace

Consider the cost of building a tower
It's a narrow way that you must come
For to do the will of the Father
Is to follow the Son
We love Him more than father or mother
We love Him more than even your own flesh
To give all that you are, for all that He is
This is the gospel according to Jesus

To give all that you are, for all that He is
This is the gospel according to Jesus
