For Jesus Instead

Words and music: Keith Lancaster (1982) � 1992 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)


When I heard of salvation and of reconciliation
I decided I would change my ol' ways (I decided I would change my ol' ways)
Yes, I fully repented adn I made a real commitment
That will last me for the rest of my days (for the rest of my days)
Oh, I don't mind when I'm givin' Him my time
Yes, I'll do it 'til the day that I'm dead
When I live for Him, brother, I'll not take to any other
'Cause I'm livin' for Jesus instead

For Jesus instead (I've been livin')
For Jesus instead
For Jesus instead (I've been livin')
For Jesus instead
For Jesus instead (I've been livin')
For Jesus instead
For Jesus instead (I've been livin')
For Jesus instead

Well, the way I've been livin' and the work that I've been givin'
I've been doing it all for the Son (I've been doing it all for the Son)
And when times were a testin' and when Satan started pressin'
I decided that I wouldn't run (no, I didn't frown)
No, I didn't frown when ol' Satan came around
I just stuck by my guns and I said,
"You must be mistaken and you sin I'm not a-takin'
'Cause I'm livin' for Jesus intead"

Repeat Chorus

For Jesus instead

Well if you life's a revival and you're readin' your Bible
And you're trustin' in God as your friend (trustin' in God as your friend)
If you're sharin' the message and to people you're a blessin'
And the Spirit is livin' within (well, you don't care)
Well, you don't care when the people start to share
And to say that you're out of your head
It'll never get to you when ol' Satan tries to fool you
'Cause you're livin' for Jesus instead

Repeat Chorus

I've been livin', yes I'm livin'
I've been livin' for Jesus instead
