“The Bottom Line”

“The Bottom Line”

BMI © 2003 Lyrics by Kim Jones & Dave Bannister
Music by Brian Jones

This is the ultimate message … the bottom line, no matter how you shake it. No amount of money, fame, friends or possessions can take the place of Christ.

Deception comes in many forms
Money, drugs or fame
The thing that’s missing, the key, the prize
Is the power of Jesus’ name.

It will lift you up or tear you down
Depending which side you’re on
The power within is freedom from sin
And the way to unlock the door

chorus

The bottom line is Jesus
Savior, redeemer, friend
The one who’s love He sent us
He’s with us til the end

You may look in the mirror think you’ve got it all
See the world laid at your feet
But it’s all an illusion, a mask, a farce
It will just end in defeat

At the end of the day it isn’t what you’ve got
Or how many people you know
It’s salvation and grace, from the king of it all
It’s God who’s running the show

chorus
