From time to time my wife Tiny posts songs on her Facebook page that sends me running for the lyrics. Well, here is certainly my 2012’s best yet!

Not enough that the word ‘revival‘ in the songs excites me but that’s not it, the tune and the song itself is an amazing reminder of what worship really is and the words will encourage you to set the stage to see God’s hand on your life.

No God lovers should miss this.

Enjoy and leave your thoughts below.

Clear The Stage by Jimmy Needham

Clear the stage and set the sound and lights ablaze

If that’s the measure you must take to crush the idols

Jerk the pews & all the decorations, too 

Until the congregations few, then have revival

Tell your friends that this is where the party ends 

Until you’re broken for your sins, you can’t be social

Then seek the Lord and wait for what He has in store 

And know that great is your reward so just be hopeful


‘Cause you can sing all you want to

Yes, you can sing all you want to

You can sing all you want to

And still get it wrong;
worship is more than a song


Take a break from all the plans that you have made 

And sit at home alone and wait for God to whisper

Beg Him please to open up His mouth and speak

And pray for real upon your knees until they blister

Shine the light on every corner of your life

Until the pride and lust and lies are in the open

Then read the Word and put to test the things you’ve heard 

Until your heart and soul are stirred and rocked and broken

‘Cause you can sing all you want to

Yes, you can sing all you want to

You can sing all you want to

And still get it wrong; worship is more than a song

We must not worship something that’s not even worth it

Clear the stage, make some space for the One who deserves it


Anything I put before my God, is an idol
Anything I want with all my heart, is an idol
Anything can’t stop thinking of, is an idol
Anything that I give all my love, is an idol
‘Cause I can sing all I want to

Yes, I can sing all I want to
I can sing all I want to

And still get it wrong

And you can sing all you want to

Yes, you can, you can sing all you want to

You can sing all you want to

And still get it wrong; worship is more than a song
Worship is more than a song
Clear the stage and set the sound and lights ablaze

If that’s the measure you must take to crush the idols.
