04. The Truth Is Who You Are

The Light Meets The Dark
by Tenth Avenue North



 

It would be easier if You were just a thought in my head
Simply something that I once read
A belief needing my defense

And it would be easier if You were something I once knew
A hope just to hold on
But You're holding out Your hands

You came to take us back to the start
You came to touch the hardness of our hearts
You gave us truth that truth is who You are
It's who You are

And it's not enough to just say, 'I believe'
'Cause truth is that talk is cheap
So grace give me eyes to see

You came to take us back to the start
You came to touch the hardness of our hearts
You gave us truth that truth is who You are
It's who You are

Flesh and blood You offer us
Oh, to eat the bread and drink the cup
Oh, to taste, to see, to feel, to touch
Emmanuel, God with us
Emmanuel, God with us

'Cause You came to break the chains apart
To wake the dead and the sleeping of our hearts
You gave us truth that truth is who You are
It's who You are
It's who You are
It's who You are



Behind the Song:
On the first record, our favorite song was Times and on this record I think our favorite song is The Truth Is Who You Are. In Christian circles, you run into a lot of people that know a lot about Christ and they know a lot about Christianity and hot topics. They want to soak up knowledge and read books and at the end of the day, Jesus said I am the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but by me. So we have to realize that Christ Jesus himself is truth, something that we can hold onto. A lot of times we search for truth in scriptures, but dont come to [Jesus]. Its just the idea that Jesus is really what sustains us. Jesus is the truth were searching for. So unless we run to Him first, all our knowledge and all the stuff we learn is just sort of puffing ourselves up. I love the message of that song. I think its such a freeing thing when people can realize that Jesus isnt some mystical person or something that you read about in a book or some kind of idea, but Hes actually a person and He wants to have a relationship with you and walk with you through these dark times. Im really excited about that song. (Jason Jamison) -- Tenth Avenue North
