04. Streets

Above The Golden State
by Above The Golden State



 

When shadows turn to faces, and when faces take on names
When names tell us their stories, of their brokenness and pain
When love flows through the cities, through the grid of all the streets
Under bridges in the alleys, like blood through our veins

Love is real
Love will bleed
Love will heal
Love will need

When love is used like money, it turns into our greed
When love is more like water, then everyone will drink
So let it flow through all our cities, and flood them like the sea
Fill the souls that hunger, Lord give us what we need

Love change the world …
Love change the world …

You can see it when He walks around
You can feel it when He moves the ground
We’re all colored with a crimson stain
Can you see it now, can you see Him now

From the clouds to the world below
From the mountain to the city of gold
Love is coming like an urgent rain
Can you feel it now, can you feel Him now

Behind the Song:
"This song was originally called “Streets Of Athens” named after the street ministry at my church. It was definitely one of those songs that happened really fast, so I truly feel like it was a gift from God. I’m very passionate about the message behind it which is this: let’s love the way Jesus loved us. I hope it encourages those involved in any type of ministry for those in need, whether it’s on the streets or in Africa. Jesus gave Himself to the point of death, and He’s asked us to do the same. That’s a very powerful call to action!" - Michael Watson (Above The Golden State)
