Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken-Oscar Wilde


Verse 1
You’re like a chess piece
The pawn so frail and small
Others trying to kill you
But God won’t let you fall

Verse 2
Sometimes theirs a checkmate
It seems like theirs no hope
Then he makes it to the other side
And he trades him for your soul

Verse 3
You’re in the life game again
Then another boulder appears
You hide in a corner praying
Then Jesus lifts you and makes it clear

Verse 4
Finally the game is over
You are alive and well
The battle scars won’t leave you
But that’s ok and swell

Verse 5
More battles will cross your path
Sometimes you may fall
But Jesus will always lift you
He won’t let you crawl

Chorus
The bible is your rule book
Leading you through the game
Sometimes you find a hook
But you get out of the frame

The blocks on the chess board
Are each a human trouble strong
So many in your life
But none to big for God



Bridge
Theirs always a checkmate
There is no hope
Then God makes it a soulmate
He lifts you up
