Andrew Peterson – The Power of a Great Affection

The Power of a Great Affection

I cannot explain the ways of love
Life cannot explain the grace of kindness
There’s no reason that can satisfy enough

The healing of this blindness

I’ve been seized by the power of a great affection
I’ve been seized by the power of a great affection

And even in the days when I was young
There seemed to be a song beyond the silence
The feeling in my bones was much too strong
To just deny it. I can’t deny this

I’ve been seized by the power of a great affection
Seized by the power of a great affection

Now this is the theme of my song
Now I must forgive as I am forgiven
And even when the shadows are long
I will sing about the Son that’s risen

That His kingdom has no end
And His kingdom has no end

I will praise Him for the fields of green and gold
I will praise Him for the roar of many waters
I will praise Him that the secret things of old
Are now revealed to sons and daughters

I’ve been seized by the power of a great affection
I’ve been seized by the power of a great affection

So Father I will give You thanks and praise
The Son has opened wide the gate of glory
He declared your mighty love and gave His grace
And I will tell his story
It is my story

I’ve been seized by the power of a great affection
Seized by the power of a great affection

Now this is the theme of my song
Now I will forgive as I’m forgiven
And even when the shadows are long
I will sing about the Son that’s risen

That his kingdom has no end
His kingdom has no end

NEEDTOBREATHE – More Heart, Less Attack

Mr. Webster's Blog

Be the light in the crack
Be the one that’s been there on a camel’s back
Slow to anger quick to laugh
Be more heart and less attack

Be the wheels not the track
Be the wanderer that’s coming back
Leave the past right where it’s at
Be more heart and less attack

The more you take the less you have
Cuz it’s you in the mirror staring back
Quick to let go slow to react
Be more heart and less attack

Ever growing steadfast
And if need be the one that’s in the gap
Be the never turning back
Twice the heart any man could have

Be the wheels not the track
Be the wanderer that’s coming back
Leave the past right where it’s at
Be more heart and less attack
Be more heart and less attack
Be more heart and less attack

I stuck my hat out I…

John Mark McMillan – Borderland

Living in a borderland
I don’t feel like a boy I don’t feel like a man
And the things I don’t understand
Things like love. Like the law, the law of the jungle

Are we all animals
Are we all animals sharpening our teeth and claws
Stocking up on cannon balls
Living like nobody knows they can’t hold on
To love and live by the law, law of the jungle

Help me holy Jesus won’t you show me how to live
I’ve got monsters at my table I’ve got Bibles bent like shivs
Help me holy Lord I see the light of Heaven’s porch
but so many of us are born here outside your chain link fence

Living in a borderland
You got to fend for yourself let the dogs eat the other man
Living in a borderland
You got to take what you get you got to get what you can

Are we all dangerous
Are we all dangerous, lost boys showing up
pockets full of fairy dust
Suffering the wanderlust, they all get crushed
Without love by the law, the law of the jungle

Help me holy Jesus won’t you show me how to live
I’ve got monsters at my table I’ve got Bibles bent like shivs
Help me holy Lord I see the light of Heaven’s porch
but so many of us are born here outside your chain link fence

Living in a borderland
You fight like a boy, you got to run like man
Living in a borderland
You got to take what you get you got to get what you can

You can’t hold on
Can’t hold on to love
You can’t hold on
You can’t hold on and live by the law

(By the law, by the law)
