What wisdom hangs a man up on a tree
As the only way to end my misery?
What kind of thinking made the way to heaven hard -
A crooked journey down a straight and narrow path?
How can I make sense of this?
I am living in God's foolishness
All the money and the power and the cleverness
Of this world, defeated by foolishness
Foolish things shame the kings
What wisdom puts the prophet in a desert place
Nobody to hear a single word he says?
And what wisdom brings reward from suffering
Where if I want to win I have to lose everything?
Cool water from a rock - salvation from a Nazarene
Dethroned for the unloved - a cross in the heart of God
I reasoned myself to death but
I was saved by foolishness
All my big ideas made such a mess
But I'm clean now, saved from foolishness
Foolish things made a king from a fool
