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

Worn out, wasted
Like a bird with broken wings
Sometimes grace reminds me
I don’t get to be the king

But love, it washes over
Love, it pulls me closer
Love, it changes everything

Everything is beautiful
Even when the tears are falling
I don’t need a miracle to believe
Even in the crashing down
I can hear redemption calling
And everything is beautiful to me

Sweetly, You release me
From the weight of what I’ve done
The trigger trips the hammer
But the bullets never come

And love it washes over
Love it pulls me closer
Love it changes everything

And love like a landslide
Like the wind
Spins around me pulls me in
And it’s unveiling, I begin

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 look around and see my wonderful life
Almost perfect from the outside
In picture frames I see my beautiful wife
Always smiling
But on the inside, I can hear her saying…

Lead me with strong hands
Stand up when I can’t
Don’t leave me hungry for love
Chasing dreams, but what about us?

Show me you’re willing to fight
That I’m still the love of your life
I know we call this our home
But I still feel alone

I see their faces, look in their innocent eyes
They’re just children from the outside
I’m working hard, I tell myself they’ll be fine
They’re independent
But on the inside, I can hear them saying…

So Father, give me the strength
To be everything I’m called to be
Father, show me the way to lead them
Won’t You lead me?

To lead them with strong hands
To stand up when they can’t
Don’t want to leave them hungry for love
Chasing things that I could give up

I’ll show them I’m willing to fight
And give them the best of my life
So we can call this our home
Lead me, ’cause I can’t do this alone
