From the album No Fences,
Friends in Low Places was a
#1 hit for Garth Brooks in 1990.
Dewayne Blackwell & Earl Bud Lee
On three separate occasions, the Bible says that "everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.'" The first is the Prophet Joel in Joel 2:32, and the other two are Peter and Paul quoting him in Acts 2:21 and Romans 10:13, respectively.
In the movie "Grease," Johnny Casino and the Gamblers ask "How low can you go, how low can you go, how low can you go, how low?" No matter how low you go, if you're still breathing, God can still save you. My God bends to low places.
As David says in Psalm 139:7-8, "Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there."
Bends to Low Places
Parody of "Friends in Low Places" by Garth Brooks
(Acts 2:21, Romans 10:13, Joel 2:32)
Blamed it all on my youth
I screwed up and goofed and ruined my life, I declared
My past was a joke and I'd gone so low
God was the last one I thought would be there
And I was sort of surprised at what appeared in the Bible
When I took a glance at that page
Cause Acts chapter 2:21 says Jesus rescues
Whosoever calls on His name
Cause my God bends down to low places
And He's with me now and I feel safe 'cause
My dues are paid and I'll be O.K
And my God's big on total grace cause
If we slip and fall He will go save us
Oh my God bends to low places!
I did stuff that's wrong
I was messed up so long, but then God bent near the floor
Ever since that night, I put faith in Christ
And I know my hope is assured
Hey, I didn't need a washing machine
To give me a shower and rinse
I will rely on His life-giving power
To forgive my sins
