I’ve never heard of Kendall Payne before, although I had heard of the subject of the song I stumbled across on Pandora.  Without a doubt, this has quickly become one of my favorite songs of all time.  It is based on the character Aslan and the famous quote, “He is not a safe lion, but he is good.”  It’s not a worship song, but the lyrics did definitely make me want to worship.  You can check it out the lyrics below and definitely buy this song on itunes because it’s worth it!

Don’t stop your crying on my account
A frightening lion, no doubt
He’s not safe, no he’s not safe
Are you tempted now to run away?
The King above all Kings is coming down
But He won’t say the words you wish that he would
Oh, he don’t do the deeds you know that He could
He won’t think the thoughts you think He should
But He is good, He is good

I know you’re thirsty, the water is free
But I should warn you, it costs everything
Well, He’s not fair, no He’s not fair
When He fixes what’s beyond repair
And graces everyone that don’t deserve
No one knows Him whom eyes never seen
No, I don’t know Him but He knows me
He knows me, He knows me
Lay down your layers, shed off your skin
But without His incision, you can’t enter in
He cuts deep, yeah He cuts deep
When the risk is great and the talk is cheap
But never leaves a wounded one behind
