You have put gladness in my heart, More than when their grain and new wine abound. Psalm 4:7

Wineskin
(Brady's Song)

 

I got some news of my wineskin

It's now shredded in two

Blown like a jalopy's tire,

Popped like a balloon

In my time of trembling

Under a judgment knife

I begged a merciful Savior

To vest me with His life

 

 So there blew my old wineskin

But a  new one arose

One where the inside

Continually grows

Its living contents

Flow from a living vine

 From the vineyards of heaven to a

 Wineskin of wine

 

I'm walkin' in a wineskin

Tryin' to fix my gaze

And keep the gospel shoes

Upon my feet

So I can grow in grace!

 

Inside this new wineskin

a miracle lives

God's life on the outside

Has found a way in

It took a great power

 To tear the old apart

It took a great mercy

 To give me a new start

 

I'm walkin' in a wineskin

Tryin' to fix my gaze

And keep the gospel shoes

Tight on my feet

So I can keep the pace!

 

I once had an old wineskin

But it shredded to bits

When words of my savior

Shook me up like a fist

And put my heart in a foot race

And at the finish line

My heart will run over

With the fruit of the Vine

Yes, my cup will run over

With the fruit of the Vine
