Lyrics

CHILDREN COME RUNNING

He knows that you hurt
He knows how you’ve been burned
You’ve been grievin’ for the cost
Of everything you’ve lost
But it’s time you turned
And opened up your sleepin’ eyes
Open up those eyelids wide
Look into the face
Of love and grace
And receive your sight

Children come runnin’ now

Jesus gonna come for you
Push aside the sun and the moon
Oh, the Earth is gonna break
Souls lifted from the grave
Oh, He’s comin’ soon
He’s ridin’ on the wind
He’s kickin’ up the dust of men
And every broken part
Will be spiraled up
And set right again

Children come runnin’ now

Oh, everybody watch the sky
For glory breakin’ through the night
When every knee will drop
Every heart is gonna stop
At His fiery light
Children come runnin’ now
Dancin’ to that trumpet sound
Come stare into the face
Of amazing grace
‘Cause you’re finally found

Children come runnin’ now

He’s ridin’ on the wind
He’s kickin’ up the dust of men
And every broken part
Will be spiraled up
And set right again

WHITE ROBES

All my pain, I bring it all
I bring it all to You
All my heartache, I bring it all
I bring it all to You

All my fear, I bring it all
I bring it all to You
All my weakness, I bring it all
I bring it all to You

Oh, this burden on my back
All this blood on my hands

Oh, meet me where that river bends, Lord
Wearin’ white robes at the water’s edge
Life is over, oh, but it’s not the end, no
I’m ready now, I’m ready now

Come to me, You said, and lay it down
Lay my burden down
Take me down so deep, Jesus, the light comes pourin’ in
The light comes pourin’ into me

Take this burden off my back
Wash all this blood off my hands

Oh, meet me where that old river bends, Lord
Wearin’ white robes at the water’s edge
Life is over, oh, but it’s not the end, no
I’m ready now, I’m ready to begin, Lord
Ready to begin

I see it all, I see it all
I see everything now, I see everything now

WHAT THE MORNING SHOWS

Devastation
Oh, this house been laid low
Every window been cracked, and I’ve tried
But I just can’t keep out the cold

Desperation
Oh, this soul been laid low
All of these changes that I can’t afford
That I can’t ignore

It’s not over now
Lift your eyes to the dawn
Oh, it’s comin’ on

A light has come
To this house that crumbled to the ground
And the morning shows
There’s still hope

Sweet consolation
Bringin’ that comfort to my soul
Let this heart be unbroken in ways
That I’ve never known, oh, but now I can know

It’s not over now
Lift your eyes to the dawn
It’s comin’ on

Oh, a light has come
To this house that crumbled to the ground
And the morning shows
There’s still hope

All of these bones, so tired and worn
All of my memories are burned out and torn
But that light kept comin’ on
And all of my memories are of beauty now
The beauty of light, pourin’ into every room of this house
Shinin’ all that darkness out

Oh, a light has come
To this house that crumbled to the ground
And the morning shows
Oh, it shows
A light has come
To this house that crumbled to the ground
And the morning shows
There’s still hope

FORTY DAYS

Forty days I stared you down
Forty days I held my ground
You could not take me
You could not break me

Forty days I hungered there
Forty days I thirsted there
You could not fill me
You could not thrill me

Forty days of dust and pain
Forty days in wait you lay
But you could not chain me
Spirit sustains me

Forty days you tempted me
Forty days you tested me
I would not give in
I won’t stop fightin’

For my sisters and my brothers
For my sisters and my brothers

You cannot take them
You cannot break them
You cannot take them
You cannot break them

OH WHAT LIGHT IS SHINING NOW!

Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God
What have I done?
Throw my hands up, my hands up, my hands up
Block out the sun
Run and hide, run and hide, run and hide
Where I’ll never be found
All my bones, all my bones, all my bones
Dried up on the ground

Never find a trace of my colors or my shapes
Or the layers that You gave me to peel back

Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God
I’m breakin’ down here
Throw my hands up, my hands up, my hands up
Knees to the ground
I can’t hide, no I can’t hide, no I can’t hide
From this burnin’ light
Sun it’s risin’, sun it’s risin’, sun it’s risin’
After the darkest night

Finally see a trace of my colors and my shapes
All these layers that You gave me to peel back

Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God
What have You done?
Threw Your hands up, Your hands up, Your hands up
And death was overcome
No more darkness, no darkness, no darkness
Can hold me down
Oh what light, oh what light, oh what light
Is shinin’ now! Yeah, it’s shinin’ now!

I can see Your face in all my colors and my shapes
Every layer that You heal as I peel back

Oh what light, oh what light, oh what light
Is shinin’ now! Yeah, it’s shinin’ now!
Oh, it’s shinin’ now! Yeah, it’s shinin’ now!

I SEE IT ALL

(Instrumental)

CONSTANT THREAD

There’s a constant thread
Keeps pullin’ me along
And it’s never broken yet
No matter how it stretched

Awaken my soul to the beat of Your heart
To the beat of Your heart
Keep pullin’ me close to where You are
To where You are

Oh, I’ve pushed and I’ve pulled
And I confess that I’ve let go
But You never let go
You won’t let go

Awaken my soul to the beat of Your heart
To the beat of Your heart
Keep pullin’ me close to where You are
To where You are

Awaken my soul to the beat of Your heart
Pullin’ me close to where You are

There’s a constant thread
Oh, it keeps pullin’ me along
And it’ll never break, oh, it’ll never break
It’s Your love, it’s Your love, it’s Your love

BELOVED

Oh, my beloved
I have wept for you
The pain and the heartache
You’ve been walkin’ through
I see your troubles
Breakin’ you down
You’re lookin’ for somethin’
You still haven’t found

Take heart, I have overcome
Come and rest, here inside my love

Oh, my Father
Has given you to me
And long have I waited
For your eyes to see
That my love is here
Oh, to make you new
Open your heart
To this love I have for you

In my heart, love burns like a fire
For you, my beloved, my desire

Run to me, run to me
My love will save you
Run to me, run to me
And I will heal your heart

Lift your eyes, lift your eyes
And see my glory
Lift your eyes, lift your eyes
And see I’ve come for you

Oh, my beloved

THOUGHT MY BACK WOULD BREAK

Well, you thought my back would break
from the weight that I carried
That every step would be agony and pain
You thought my back would break
from the weight that I carried
But you got another thing comin’

If every demon I’ve faced down stood in a line
They’d stretch on for miles
If every demon I’ve faced down stood in a line
It’d stretch on for miles

You thought my back would break
But your back’s gonna break, not mine
Your back is gonna break
Your back is gonna break, not mine

Chains gonna break
All these chains gonna break, Jesus comin’
Oh, old Death is gonna break
Talkin’ souls from the grave, Jesus comin’

You got another thing comin’
You got another thing comin’

TRAIL OF BLOOD

Beautiful the veins
That poured out like a flood
To drown my shame

Beautiful the scars
That left a trail of blood
To where You are

It was there my heart started beatin’

WHAT MY HEART BEATS FOR

Now my heart, it beats for you, my Lord
