Give God Your Eyes

January 2, 2009

Have you given God your eyes?

Looked down from a broken sky
Traced out by the city lights
My world from a mile high
Best seat in the house tonight
Touched down on the cold black top
Hold on for the sudden stop
Breath in the familiar shock
Of confusion and chaos
All those people going somewhere,
Why have I never cared?

Chorus:
Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the broken hearted
Ones that are far beyond my reach.
Give me your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me your eyes so I can see
Yeah
Yeah

Step out on a busy street
See a girl and our eyes meet
Does her best to smile at me
To hide what’s underneath
There’s a man just to her right
Black suit and a bright red tie
Too ashamed to tell his wife
He’s out of work
He’s buying time
All those people going somewhere
Why have I never cared?

Chorus

I’ve Been there a million times
A couple of million eyes
Just moving past me by
I swear I never thought that I was wrong
Well I want a second glance
So give me a second chance
To see the way you see the people all along

Chorus (x2)

Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good; celebrate His wonderful name with music.
Psalm 135:3

The LORD is good. When trouble comes He is a strong refuge. And He knows everyone who trusts in Him.
Nahum 1:7

You Carried Me

July 19, 2008

I really enjoy Building 429. Here is a song called You Carried Me….

I’ve been so busy, I missed the reasons
I missed Your love, and I nearly missed it all
Still You’ve loved me, and You’ve healed me
You’ve given all and it brought me to Your cross
I stand only because You’ve given me grace to walk
Only because

You carried me
You carried me
You carried me through it all
And I believe
Yes I believe
You’ll carry me all the way home
Cause mercy covers all

I know the scripture, I’ve known the songs
I sang the words from my hollowed heart
But You’ve spoken softly through the storm
I’ve heard Your voice and I’ve felt the calm
I stand only because You’ve given me faith to walk

You carried me
You carried me
You carried me through it all
And I believe
Yes I believe
You’ll carry me all the way home
Cause mercy covers all

I know that you love me
I’ll never doubt it I can’t live without it
Your mercy has found me
I am astounded, I can’t live without it

You carried me
You carried me
And I believe
Yes I believe
You’ll carry me all the way home
Cause mercy covers all
Mercy covers all
And I believe
And I believe
I believe

by Matthew West

album: Happy (2003)

Take a look at the mountains
Stretching a mile high
Take a look at the ocean
Far as your eye can see
And think of Me

Take a look at the desert
Do you feel like a grain of sand?
I am with you wherever
Where you go is where I am

And I'm always thinking of you
Take a look around you
I'm spelling it out one by one

(Chorus)
I love you more than the sun
And the stars that I taught how to shine
You are mine, and you shine for me too
I love you yesterday and today
And tomorrow, I'll say it again and again
I love you more

Just a face in the city
Just a tear on a crowded street
But you are one in a million
And you belong to Me

And I want you to know
That I'm not letting go
Even when you come undone

(Chorus)
I love you more than the sun
And the stars that I taught how to shine
You are mine, and you shine for me too
I love you yesterday and today
And tomorrow, I'll say it again and again
I love you more
I love you more

Shine for Me
Shine for Me
Shine on, shine on
Shine for Me

(Chorus)
I love you more than the sun
And the stars that I taught how to shine
You are mine, and you shine for me too
I love you yesterday and today
And tomorrow, I'll say it again and again
I love you more 

(Chorus)
Than the sun
and the stars that I taught how to shine
You are mine, and you shine for me too
I love you, yesterday and today
Through the joy and the pain
I'll say it again and again
I love you more
I love you more

And I see you
And I made you
And I love you more than you can imagine
More than you can fathom
I love you more than the sun
And you shine for me

Way Over Yonder

March 13, 2008

 Way Over Yonder by Carole King

Way over yonder is a place that I know
Where I can find shelter from huger and cold
And the sweet tasting good life is easily found
Way over yonder – that’s where I’m bound

I know when I get there, the first thing I’ll see
Is the sun shining golden – shining right down on me
Then trouble’s gonna lose me – worry leave me behind
And I’ll stand up proudly in true peace of mind

Way over yonder is a place I have seen
In a garden of wisdom from some long ago dream

May be tomorrow I’ll find my way
To the land where the honey runs in rivers each day
And the sweet tasting good life is so easily found
Way over yonder – that’s where I’m bound
Way over yonder – that’s where I’m bound

You Get Me!

February 15, 2008

Wonderful

Is what I perceived
This life would be
Pain and problem free
But over time
I found reality
And through it all I see
That you’re the only one who gets me

I may be misunderstood ’cause I wouldn’t ever fake it
You’re the only one who understands my pain
Cause you get me
Doesn’t matter what they do what they think what they say
At the end of the day I’m okay anyway
’cause LORD you get me

No more tears
It’s a silent night
You’re broken down on fear
’cause you remain in all of me
You know me better than I know myself
The key to my security
There is no one else who gets me

I may be misunderstood ’cause I wouldn’t ever fake it
You’re the only one who understands my pain
’cause you get me
Doesn’t matter what they do what they think what they say
At the end of the day I’m okay anyway
’cause LORD you get me

I don’t care what the world may say
I hear you calling my name
And I reach for you reach for you
There is nothing that I’d rather do
Than just worship you, LORD
I’m going to worship you
Worship you

I’m okay [4 times]
Yeah
I’m okay [6 times]
Yeah
I’m okay I’m okay
Yeah
I’m okay [4 times]

I may be misunderstood ’cause I wouldn’t ever fake it
You’re the only one who understands my pain
’cause you get me
Doesn’t matter what they do what they think what they say
At the end of the day I’m ok anyway
’cause LORD you get me

I may be misunderstood ’cause I wouldn’t ever fake it
You’re the only one who understands my pain
’cause you get me
Doesn’t matter what they do what they think what they say
At the end of the day I’m ok anyway
’cause LORD you get me

I’m okay [4 times]
Yeah
I’m okay [6 times]
Yeah
I’m okay [2 times]
Yeah
I’m okay [4 times]

You understand me
So completely
Now I am free
LORD you get me
[repeat]
