Looking for the Pearl

Here's a song I wrote years ago and finally got the ability to record it the way it should sound. Download it by clicking here, or play through the audio player below.

Looking for the Pearl 

Words and Music by Keith Schooley 

Bearded men stand in water and sand
Ignoring the cold
Gnarled hands clutch metal pans
Searching for gold

Hungry eyes under starry skies
Seek lips in the dark
Fingers touch, aching arms clutch
Coaxing fire from a spark

But it's fool's gold and a cold flame
Fool's gold and a deadly game

Keep on looking for the pearl
Keep on seeking
Keep on looking for the pearl

Keep on looking for the pearl
Keep on seeking
Keep on looking for the pearl

Pinstripes meet in an executive suite
To extend their domains
A senator's bought so they don't get caught
With hands on the reins

But it's fool's gold and a cold flame
Fool's gold and a ruined name

Keep on looking for the pearl
Keep on seeking
Keep on looking for the pearl

Keep on looking for the pearl
Keep on seeking
Keep on looking for the pearl

A pearl in a field, bought with innocent blood
A lamb on a cross in the darkness
One perfect pearl, one heavenly lamb
Without spot, without blemish

Keep on looking for the pearl
Keep on seeking
Keep on looking for the pearl

Keep on looking for the pearl
Keep on seeking
Keep on looking for the pearl

Keep on looking for the pearl

The Church on the Edge of Revival

This message is more deeply personal than most of the ones I have given. I shared it at Red Oaks Assembly of God on July 20, 2008. The recording begins rather abruptly; the first sentence is, "I have been in the church that was on the edge of revival all my life." I pray the message is a blessing to you.
