I felt it first when I was younger

A strange connection to the light
I tried to satisfy the hunger
I never got it right
I never got it right

So I climbed a mountain and built an altar
Looked out as far as I could see
And everyday I’m getting older
I’m running out of dreams
I’m running out of dreams

But your love, your love
The only thing that matters is
Your love, your love
Is all I have to give
Your love is enough
To light up the darkness
It’s your love, your love
All I ever needed is your love

You know the effort I have given
And you know exactly what it cost
And though my innocence was taken
Not everything is lost
Not everything is lost, no

You’re the hope in the morning
You’re the light when the night is falling
You’re the song when my heart is singing
It’s your love

You’re the eyes to the blind man
You’re the feet to the lame man walking
You’re the sound to the people singing
It’s your love

Give me rules
I will break them
Give me lines
I will cross them
I need more than a truth to believe
I need a truth that lives, moves, and breathes
To sweep me off my feet
It ought to be

More like falling in love
Than something to believe in
More like losing my heart
Than giving my allegiance
Caught up, called out
Come take a look at me now
It’s like I’m falling, oh
It’s like I’m falling in love

Give me words
I’ll misuse them
Obligations
I’ll misplace them
‘Cause all religion ever made of me
Was just a sinner with a stone tied to my feet
It never set me free
It’s gotta be

It’s like I’m falling in love, love, love
Deeper and deeper
It was love that made
Me a believer in
More than a name, a faith, a creed
Falling in love with Jesus brought the change in me
It’s gotta be

You say love is just a word, just four letters in a row
Just a thing that people say, or they never tell you so
And you use every excuse, to let nobody in
Now this cloud you bring around, has become your only friend

And everybody saying that it’s going to go away, but it don’t go
And everybody’s telling you one day it’s going to change, but you don’t know
If it’s really going to end

But there is a way, there is a spark
There is a hope that you can hold on to
There is a lifeline come to the rescue
Just like a hand that’s waiting for you
And if you believe in this I promise that you won’t be alone
There is a way, the truth and the life, and the way

But if love became a man, if the word had flesh and bone
Would you recognize His face, if He came to bring you home
You think you’re all alone, gotta do it on your own riding solo
Is there someone you can call, when you stumble and fall?
Cause you don’t know, if you’ll be getting up again

Don’t you think your life’s worth saving?
Don’t you know that love’s amazing?
Don’t you want to lay your troubles down?
Lay them down

If I thought love was just a word, I might feel the same way too
But there’s so much more than that, and it’s waiting here for you

Here I am humbled by your Majesty
Covered by your grace so free
Here I am, knowing I’m a sinful man
Covered by the blood of the Lamb

Now I’ve found the greatest love of all is mine
Since you laid down your life
The greatest sacrifice

Majesty, Majesty
Your grace has found me just as I am
Empty handed, but alive in your hands
Majesty, Majesty
Forever I am changed by your love
In the presence of your Majesty

Here I am humbled by the love that you give
Forgiven so that I can forgive
Here I stand, knowing that I’m your desire
Sanctified by glory and fire

Now I’ve found the greatest love of all is mine
Since you laid down your life
The greatest sacrifice

I know this life is filled with sorrow
And there are days when the pain just lasts and lasts
But I know there will come a day
When our tears are washed away
With a break in the clouds
His glory coming down
And in that moment

Every knee shall bow, every tongue confess
That God is love and love has come for us all
Every heart set free, every one will see
That God is love and love has come for us all

For anybody who has ever lost a loved one
And you feel like you had to let go too soon
I know it hurts to say goodbye
But don’t you know it’s just a matter of time
‘Til the tears are gonna end
You’ll see them once again
And in that moment

Oh, and on that day
We will stand amazed
At our Savior, God and King
Just to see the face
Of amazing grace
As our hearts rise up and sing

Glory, glory, hallelujah
Thank You for the cross
Singing glory, glory, hallelujah
Christ has paid the cost
