Forward in Reverse

I found a haystack in a needle
I caught an angel in a lie
I saw a hypocrite in heaven
Remove a log from both his eyes
I saw an anvil float on water
Water running up a hill
An old cheater keep his promise
And his hand’s outside the till

I saw the last get in first
I saw the best in the worst
By moving forward in reverse
And back again to love
Holy, holy love

I saw a shepherd king freefalling
Off a throne of mud and straw
He landed on a bed of nails
Proclaiming “Love’s the only law”
I saw a dead man who’d been buried
Walk around outside his grave
The ones we’re told are not worth saving
Are the ones now being saved

Chorus

I found a haystack in a needle
I caught an angel in a lie
