Worlds Apart / by Jars of Clay

I am the only one to blame for this

Somehow it all ends up the same

Soaring on the wings of selfish pride

I flew too high and like Icarus I collide

With a world I try so hard to leave behind

To rid myself of all but love

to give and die

To turn away and not become

Another nail to pierce the skin of one who loves

more deeply than the oceans,

more abundant than the tears

Of a world embracing every heartache

Can I be the one to sacrifice

Or grip the spear and watch the blood and water flow

To love you - take my world apart

To need you - I am on my knees

To love you - take my world apart

To need you - broken on my knees

All said and done I stand alone

Amongst remains of a life I should not own

It takes all I am to believe

In the mercy that covers me

Did you really have to die for me?

All I am for all you are

Because what I need and what I believe are worlds apart

[Additional lyrics:]

I look beyond the empty cross

forgetting what my life has cost

and wipe away the crimson stains

and dull the nails that still remain

More and more I need you now,

I owe you more each passing hour

the battle between grace and pride

I gave up not so long ago

So steal my heart and take the pain

and wash the feet and cleanse my pride

take the selfish, take the weak,

and all the things I cannot hide

take the beauty, take my tears

the sin-soaked heart and make it yours

take my world all apart

take it now, take it now

and serve the ones that I despise

speak the words I can’t deny

watch the world I used to love

fall to dust and thrown away

I look beyond the empty cross

forgetting what my life has cost

so wipe away the crimson stains

and dull the nails that still remain

so steal my heart and take the pain

take the selfish, take the weak

and all the things I cannot hide

take the beauty, take my tears

take my world apart, take my world apart

I pray, I pray, I pray

take my world apart

Josh Garrels / White Owl 

When the night comes
and you don’t know which way to go
Through the shadowlands
and forgotten paths
you will find a road

Like an owl you must fly by moonlight with an open eye,
And use your instinct as a guide,
to navigate the ways that lays before you,
You were born to, take the greatest flight

Like a serpent and a dove, you will have wisdom born of love
To carry visions from above into the places no man dares to follow
Every hollow in the dark of night
Waiting for the light
Take the flame tonight

Child the time has come for you to go
You will never be alone
Every dream that you have been shown
Will be like living stone
Building you into a home
A shelter from the storm

Like a messenger of peace, the beauty waits be released
Upon the sacred path you keep, leading deeper into the unveiling
As your sailing, across the great divide

Like a wolf at midnight howls, you use your voice in darkest hours
To break the silence and the power, holding back the others from their glory
Every story will be written soon
The blood is on the moon
Morning will come soon

Colored People / dcTalk

Una buena canción sobre la diversidad de razas, de uno de mis grupos favoritos.

Pardon me, your epidermis is showing, mister
I couldn’t help but note your shade of melanin
I tip my hat to the colorful arrangement
Cause I see the beauty in the tones of our skin 

We’ve gotta come together
And thank the Maker of us all 

We’re colored people, and we live in a tainted place
We’re colored people, and they call us the human race
We’ve got a history so full of mistakes
And we are colored people who depend on a Holy Grace 

A piece of canvas is only the beginning for
It takes on character with every loving stroke
This thing of beauty is the passion of an Artist’s heart
By God’s design, we are a skin kaleidoscope 

We’ve gotta come together,
Aren’t we all human after all? 

Ignorance has wronged some races
And vengeance is the Lord’s
If we aspire to share this space
Repentance is the cure 

Well, just a day in the shoes of a color blind man
Should make it easy for you to see
That these diverse tones do more than cover our bones
As a part of our anatomy

Arms wide open

Me encontré con esta canción.

Resume todo, lo dice todo.

Arms wide open, de Misty Edwards.

What does love look like? is the question Ive been pondering
What does love look like? 
What does love look like? is the question Ive been asking of You 
Once believed that love was romance, just a chance 
I even thought that love was for the lucky and the beautiful 
I once believed that love was a momentary bliss, but love is more than this 
All You ever wanted was my attention 
All You ever wanted was love from me
All You ever wanted was my affections to sit here at Your feet and tell me 
What does love look like? is the question Ive been pondering
What does love look like? If all of life comes down to love then tell me 
What does love look like? is the question Ive been pondering
What does love look like?

Then I sat down a little frustrated and confused 
Your fire of life comes down to love. And love has to be more than sentiment,
More than selfishness and selfish gain 

Then I saw Him there
Hanging on a tree, looking at me 
I saw Him there
Hanging on a tree, looking at me
He was looking at me looking at Him, staring through me
I could not escape those beautiful eyes 
And I began to weep and weep 

He had arms wide open, heart exposed
Arms wide open, He was bleeding, bleeding. 
Arms wide open, heart exposed
Arms wide open, He was bleeding, bleeding
Loves definition 
Loves definition, was looking at me 
Looking at Him. Hanging on a tree
I began to weep and weep and weep and weep
This is how I know what love is.

And as I sat there, weeping, crying, those beautiful eyes 
Full of desire and love. And He said to me
You shall love Me..You shall love Me.
With arms wide open, heart exposed
With arms wide open, bleeding, sometimes bleeding
You shall love Me.. You shall love Me..


If anybodys looking for love in all the wrong places 
If youve been searching for love, come to Me. Come to me. 
Take up your cross. Deny yourself. 
Forget your fathers house and run. Run with Me. 
Cause you were made for abandon your heart and listen
Cause you were made for Someone greater, Someone bigger, so follow Me. 
And youll come alive when you learn to die.
And He said to me

You shall love Me. You shall love Me

With arms wide open, heart exposed
With arms wide open, bleeding, sometimes bleeding
