Being that it is Taylor Tuesday I wanted to find some Swift lyrics that went with this week. The task didn’t seem likely with the general nature of Taylor’s music in comparison to the problem of sex trafficking. However, I looked anyway and quickly came upon “Innocent.”
Looking up the lyrics I saw that they are full of God’s heart for children who are forced into the horrific world of human slavery.
“I hope you remember, today is never too late to be brand new…Oh, who you are is not where you’ve been, you’re still an innocent.”
Most children get the chance to just be little kids. Like the song says, “Wasn’t it easier in your lunchbox days? Always a bigger bed to crawl into. Wasn’t it beautiful when you believed in everything, and everybody believed in you.” But there are thousands of children who never get the chance to believe or experience any of those things.
“It’s alright, just wait and see, your string of lights is still bright to me. Oh, who you are is not where you’ve been. You’re still an innocent.”
God still provides hope for all those who are being held captive in human slavery. He still loves and sees the light in each of them.
