Rebecca St. James That's What Matters Lyrics

Last updated:

By Rebecca St. James & Tedd T.

I read about this guy once
He seemed to own the earth
As far as big shots go and people in the know… well
He was definitely top of the list
Anything he wanted - he'd get it
Society's dream
Had lots of stuff - had lots of money
But you know what's funny?
He said it was all useless

Meaningless - Meaningless
He said "Everything is meaningless
A chase after the wind"

Chorus:

Don't wish for a better day
Be glad and use the one you're in
Fear God and do exactly what He says
That's what matters
All else fades like the flowers

Well, he'd tried pleasure
There was nothing in that
He built houses & gardens & parks
What good did it do?
Just got him more depressed
Meaningless - Meaningless
He said "Everything's meaningless…
But this is what I learned in all my years"

Chorus

Meaningless - Meaningless
He said "Everything is meaningless
A chase after the wind"

Don't wish for a better day
Be glad and use the one you're in
Fear God and do exactly what He says
That's what matters
All else fades away

Meaningful - meaningful
Life holds new meaning
When God becomes the center of it all

I read about another man once
He came to save the earth
You know I got to meet Him, Jesus
He revolutionized my whole entire life

Chorus
Repeat
