Love is not proud, love does not boast
Love after all matters the most
Love does not run, love does not hide
Love does not keep locked inside
Love is a river that flows through
And love never fails you

Love will sustain, love will provide
Love will not cease at the end of time
And love will protect, love always hopes
And love still believes when you don’t
Love is the arms that are holding you
Love never fails you

When my heart won’t make a sound
When I can’t turn back around
When the sky is falling down
Nothing is greater than this, greater than this

‘Cause love is right here, love is alive
Love is the way, the truth, the life
Love is the river that flows through
Love is the arms that are holding you
And love is the place you will fly to
Love never fails you

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

There’s a cross on the side of the road
Where a mother lost a son, how could she know
That the morning he left would be their last time?
She’d trade with him for a little more time
So she could say she loved him one last time
And hold him tight, but with life we never know
When we’re coming up to the end of the road
So what do we do then
With tragedy around the bend?

We live, we love
We forgive and never give up
‘Cause the days we are given are gifts from above
And today we remember to live and to love

There’s a man who waits for the tests
To see if the cancer has spread yet
And now he asks so why did I wait to live
‘Til it was time to die?
If I could have the time back how I’d live
Life is such a gift
So how does the story end?
Well, this is your story and it all depends
So don’t let it become true
Get out to do what we were meant to do

Waking up to another dark morning
People are mourning
The weather in life outside is storming
But what would it take for the clouds to break?
For us to realize each day is a gift somehow someway
So get our heads up out of the darkness
And spark this new mindset
And start to live life ‘cuz it ain’t gone yet
And tragedy is a reminder to take off the blinders and wake up
And live the life we’re supposed to take up
Moving forward with all our heads up
‘Cause life is worth living

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
