All Moments - Lyrics

FAULT LINES

 

We are Treasure,

hiding and shining.

 

We are Hostages

captive. alive.

 

We’re falling down, but crawling toward your beckoning

until we hear your mystery, your bellows.

 

Over the mountains,

through the shadow

and through the shade

We hear “Do not be afraid”

 

There is the voice worth listening

syllables in your soul

there is the love worth mimicking

the embracing of another

 

There is an eye on everyone

hiding in every hole

Until the night has been turned to day

I am reaching for my brother

 

We are Fault lines

Splitting and shifting

 

We are Islands

connected below

 

We’re falling down, but crawling toward your beckoning

until we hear your mystery, your bellows.

 

Over the mountains,

through the shadow

and through the shade

We hear “Do not be afraid”

 

There is the voice worth listening

the syllables of your soul

there is the love worth mimicking

the embracing of another

 

There is an eye on everyone

hiding in every hole

Until the night has been turned to day

I am reaching for my brother

 

You are

The source that satisfies

and you’re still hard to recognize

 

You are

clarity to my sight

and you’re still hard to recognize

 

Though you’re

so over advertised

you are so hard to recognize

 

BOTTOMLESS

 

If I walk onto the waters, I would sink

When I stare into the eyes of God, I blink

When you show me your forgiveness, I show blame

I am running from the person that you’ve claimed

 

Would you let me see outside of

what i’m seeing through these eyes

Oh how you see through

 

I am focused on the constant mass of sin

it is written on the very life i’m in

If I go to take a step of faith, I stand

all the evidence that I’m a fallen man

 

Would you let me see outside of

what i’m seeing through these eyes

Oh how you see through

 

You are a God of heavenly size

with no ending and with no start

you see with endless eyes

and you have a bottomless heart

 

I can be so mad in my mind

waiting for your plans to unwind

but you love me every time

cause you have a bottomless heart

 

I am falling to my knees and I need help

and the book I want to read is on the shelf

for my name, I will go most any length

with the occasional “Jesus be my strength”

 

You are a God of heavenly size

with no ending and with no start

you see with endless eyes

and you have a bottomless heart

 

I can be so mad in my mind

waiting for your plans to unwind

but you love me every time

cause you have a bottomless heart

 

LOVER

 

Will you be the strength to face the day?

will you be the hope that I am watching, waiting for

and disperse the clouds that fill my sky

Charging through the crowd and all the ways to qualify

 

You are a God that never runs

so keep us inside your heart and mind

the way you see from where you are is a comforting kind

perspective of time

 

I am slowed my walk is weary

but you have stayed beside me

you the always faithful, Invincible lover

we share hope in one another

relying on your power

forever I am with you

we believe in each other

 

Should my selfish heart begin to swell

you have got the power to rein me in and reign again

and restore in me the joy of day

you are always near and you are oh so far away

 

This is my autograph

this sinful state

but you’re reading what

it doesn’t say

You are clamoring out a different name

You are clamoring out a different name

 

it’s not the good or bad

that I want to do

that gets me close or far from you

but you authored this new identity

you have offered this greater life to me

 

I am slowed my walk is weary

but you have stayed beside me

you the always faithful, Invincible lover

we share hope in one another

relying on your power

forever I am with you

we believe in each other

 

NORTHWESTERN

 

You see my wandering heart inside my chest

you know my anxious thoughts and wish me rest.

we know these ravenous roads surround

Every ear is ringing with the looming sound

 

Though dense and heavy conditions thrive

I get a feeling that we’ll make it out alive

Too often we’re wishing the night away

but without it we wouldn’t define the day

 

I am sitting in silence atop stormiest seas

and I wait for the waters to wash over me

 

You see our struggles and our sorrow

I am already on my knees

I am an echo of the hero

who faced the fires before me

He is the arbiter of comfort

making his place in the unknown

I see the footprints of the hero

this is the pathway to his home

 

You see my wandering heart inside my chest

know my anxious thoughts and wish me rest

when we are crashing as waves along the shore

we’re grasping the God who broke before

 

Can we stand as a people

finding peace with our lot

can we suffer in stillness

believing we’re bought

 

You see our struggles and our sorrow

I am already on my knees

I am and echo of the hero

who faced the fires before me

He is the arbiter of comfort

making his place in the unknown

I see the footprints of the hero

this is the pathway to his home

 

You will catch the pieces of my heart

so I need not fear the fall apart

you will count a million of my tears

you will whisper worth into my fears

 

I have hope in the darkness

recollection of light

you have loved me in my ignorance

Oh restorer of life

 

WATER/BRICK

 

This is a vacated town,

where simple sorrows are found

longing for our pension.

 

We make no garden or grove

there is no channel or cove

Such a dry dimension

Give us intervention

 

He whispers his love through desolate lands

And gives us the most unthinkable chance

Beyond barricade through river and wall

I’m grasping your grip, surviving the fall

 

We owe an incessant wage

that only one can assuage

hastening the medicine

 

So cracks and slivers in skin

be mended outside and in

Offer your attention

Greatest reinvention

 

He whispers his love through desolate lands

And gives us the most unthinkable chance

Beyond barricade through river and wall

I’m grasping your grip, surviving the fall

 

THE UNLIKELY

 

Spirit of all might

who races toward the lost

Backer of our bliss and knower of our cost

keep us in your heart

and keep us in your mind

Press us through our fears

and counter the decline

 

You made the galaxies to dance for you

Your massive majesty will pull us through

When I am dizzied by my darkest days

Help me not to see you sideways

Lead me to the light in your way

 

Spirit of all love

and opener of doors

Watcher of the waves

And guardian of shores

keep us in your sight

when ocean billows roar

show me all the reasons

I know I am yours

I know I am yours

 

You made the galaxies to dance for you

Your massive majesty will pull us through

When I am dizzied by my darkest days

Help me not to see you sideways

Lead me to the light in your way

 

You are bigger than the god I trust

you love to do the unlikely

slowed - just to plant the guarantee

The promise you’re always with me

 

You are bigger than the god I trust

you love to do the unlikely

slowed just to plant the guarantee

The promise you’re always with me

You promise you’re always with me.

 

You made the galaxies to dance for you

Your massive majesty will pull us through

When I am dizzied by my darkest days

Help me not to see you sideways

Lead me to the light in your way

 

LET’S RUN

 

Though I will walk through fire, and I will crawl in mud

I’ll never shake the sacrifice of blood

You are the strongest and you are my promised Lord

 

In every darkened dwell

and every shadowed den

My God will spread like fire to the meadows end

You are the strongest and you are my promised Lord

 

I’m beginning to make sense of all the ways you show

the unending love for us - Perpetual hope

 

Holding the hearts of the broken

seeing the souls of the poor

you hold the hands of your children

and lead them to victory’s door

 

Maker of beauty and purpose

You see the stars from above

I am a new transformation

Knowing the founder of love

 

So I will fight the flood

and I will run through rain

You send the current rushing through my veins

You are the strongest and you are my promised Lord

 

When we are trained by trial

and we are forged by flame

then we can rest our eyes on heavens claim

You are the strongest and you are my promised Lord

 

I’m beginning to make sense of all the ways you show

Your unending love for us - It carries us home

 

Holding the hearts of the broken

seeing the souls of the poor

you hold the hands of your children

and lead them to victory’s door

 

Maker of beauty and purpose

You see the stars from above

I am a new transformation

Knowing the founder of love

 

O to taste the sweetness of your remedy

O to see beyond the great divide

O that you’d include me in your legacy

O that you would call me to your side

 

Until our worlds collide

and this drop of life will not vanish on the ground

but it will land in place in your raging seas! Let’s run!

 

To the lonely with the broken hearts - Let’s run!

To the desolate and cast aside -  Let’s run!

Let’s run to the cynics who misjudge his heart - Let’s run!

Let’s run to the wayward with the hateful minds - Let’s run!

 

When my flesh does fall

and my eyes have closed

You will light the long and crowded road

you are the strongest and You are my promised Lord

 

WANDERING

 

Will you let me see

will you let me see

The ways that I am shaping you

to look a little more like me

 

Will you show me how

Will you show me how

how I have turned away from you

and focused on the now

 

Will you show me how?

Will you show me how?

 

Will you help me find

Will you help me find

a heart that heeds your promises

embracing the design

 

Will you let me know

Will you let me know

The ways that I’ve been strangling

and ways I should let go

 

Will you let me know?

Will you let me know?

 

You are never startled when I try to pull away

you meet me in the black and in the grey

 

Though I do my wandering

You are never far

Go in front and back of me

Stay just where you are

 

Though I do my wandering

You are never far

Go in front and back of me

Stay just where you are

 

GORDON JACKSON

 

Gather every arrowhead

that can pierce through death and reach the dead

so that we see you now as you may allow

we will find you

 

Scour every scope and sight

That can move from blindness back to sight

and then we look around, see where you are found

we will find you

 

You are reaching out to your heirs

Night can’t veil the flash your flares

We have been constructed to shape

Steps to scale the greatest escape

 

Break the cages where we hide

That we may stand up at your side

Domination of an unending love

We will find you

 

You are reaching out to your heirs

Night can’t veil the flash of your flares

We have been constructed to shape

Steps to scale the greatest escape

 

Carry fire as we go

and every heart will overflow

we are not the same, once we touch the flame

once we find you.

 

So when you move then all

I will need to know

show me where to go

show me where you go

 

THE ONLY OPENING

 

I have seen my structure and its falling apart

only I can know the darkest parts of my heart

every inclination moving me towards the fall

helping me to see the ways you carry us all

 

All is forgiven

Everyone’s story is a little bit different

All is forgiven

Ask me if I need it.

 

and that’s the reason that I believe

this safety is a facade

I relinquish reservations

while I am chasing.

 

We prefer the solitude of being unknown

born into a world we try to conquer alone

murmuring the mantras our society sings

striving for the liberty to clip our own wings

 

All is forgiven

Everyone’s story is a little bit different

All is forgiven.

It’s so easy to spot my weakness

 

and that’s the reason that I believe

this safety is a facade

I will run along life’s ledges

Cause I am chasing God

 

and that’s the reason I am freed

from the barren guarantees.

this open minded world has closed

to the only opening

 

I can hear the voices of the masterful designer of my breath

helping me with choices that avoid the places that only bring me death

 

All is forgiven

Everyone’s story is a little bit different

All is forgiven.

Guess I knew it, but now I need it

 

and that’s the reason that I believe

this safety is a facade

I will run along life’s ledges

Cause I am chasing God

 

and that’s the reason that I am freed

from the barren guarantees.

this open minded world has closed

to the only opening.
