06. Closer Than You Know

Glorious Light
by (the autumn)

       
Lyrics:

Verse 1
I tempered the storm though your faith was small
I prayed while you slept and the night waged war
We stood in the fire and we walked on sea
And we drank of the wine that was made of Me

Pre-Chorus 1
Don't turn your eyes from Me
For My love won't be undone
Don't hide your face from Me
For My light has surely come
Surely come surely come oh

Verse 2
I carried that cross and I felt your pain
I took up your crown and I wore your shame
And death was a fire and its teeth were grim
But I left it behind along with all your sin

Pre-Chorus 2
Don't turn away from Me
For My love won't be undone
Don't hide your face from Me
For My light has surely come
Surely come surely come oh

Chorus 1
Lift up your eyes and see
Heaven is closer than you know
Lift up your voice and sing
Know that My love won't let you go
And I won't forsake you

Lift up your eyes and see
Heaven is closer than you know
Know I'll never leave you
So lift up your voice and sing
Know that My love won't let you go
And My light has surely come
Interlude
Surely come surely come
And I'm closer than you know
And I'm closer than you know

Chorus 2
Lord I hear You I know You're there
Closer now than my skin and bones could dare
Breathing deep within me
You are always with me
I can see You where eyes can't stare
Brighter now than the sun could ever dare
Breathing all around me
God I know You're with me here

Lord I hear You I know You're there
Closer now than my skin and bones could dare
Breathing deep within me
You are always with me
I can see You where eyes can't stare
Brighter now than the sun could ever dare
Breathing all around me
God I know that You are here

Ending
For I'm Yours and You are mine
And my soul knows well
You are here You are here
And my soul will praise You
And my soul will praise Your name
Singing holy is Your name
Jesus oh Jesus
