Blake Shelton released a new song from his forthcoming album Body Language, which will out on May 21. The new song is called “Bible Verses.”

Blake said of the new song, “No matter where you are in your faith, there are times you feel like you just don’t measure up. ‘Bible Verses’ is an honest take on that conflict but, without preaching too much, it’s hopeful that everything will all work out in the end.”

The song’s lyrics include, “I ain’t ever worn a halo / Don’t suppose I ever will / As far as savin’ me goes, it’s a battle up a hill / But I keep climbin’, tryin’, fightin’.”

“I keep prayin’ for the day / That I can open up that Good Book / And Heaven don’t look like it’s out of reach / When it feels like those Apostles are givin’ me the gospel and not the third degree,” Shelton sings each chorus, listing some of his sins in the verses but still being gentle on himself. “I just want it to read like Bible verses and not the Bible versus me.”
