A Musical Interlude: “Baptized” by Lenny Kravitz

YouTube Preview Image

I don’t want to look around
And be turned to stone
All my darkest days awoken
I’m looking for a new way
Lead me to a place wide open

I need a love that takes me higher
So high I’m never coming down

I don’t want to know emptiness
Take me down to the water
Wanna be baptized in your love
Far away from the loneliness
Take my heart and wash away the fear
Let me be baptized in your love

Everybody’s going down
They end up all alone
Far too many words unspoken
I know I gotta be there, I’m ready to be shown
The path of righteousness unbroken

I need a love that takes me higher
So high I’m never coming down

I don’t want to know emptiness
Take me down to the water
Wanna be baptized in your love
Far away from the loneliness
Take my heart and wash away the fear
Let me be baptized in your love

I would be a fool to let you go
With you I’m reborn
I’m no longer torn
Yeah
I refuse to lose my heart and soul
I have to be strong

I don’t want to know emptiness
Take me down to the water
Wanna be baptized in your love
Far away from the loneliness
Take my heart and wash away the fear
Let me be baptized in your love

Not your usual CCM.

One Response to A Musical Interlude: “Baptized” by Lenny Kravitz

  1. Tom Forrester says:

    I'm not sure what Lenny had in mind, but it made me think about being immersed into the love of Christ. I know there are many aspects of baptism, but certainly not least important is beginning our new and completely different life with him. The more I look at the teachings of Jesus, the more it appears the emphasis is on relationships rather than principles. O how we are blessed in this new covenant.
