04. Eyes Wide Open

The Shelter
by Jars of Clay



 

Talk to me, Ďcause Iíve been talking to myself
Help me get these thoughts out of my own head
I donít believe, most days I donít believe
Mercy is true, itís hard to live with the things I do

So God, bruise the heels weíve dug in the ground
That we might move closer to love
Pull out the roots weíve dug in so deep
Finish what you started
Help us to believe

Keep our eyes wide open
Love is kind and love is daring, everything we need to keep our eyes
Keep our eyes wide open
Love is kind and love is daring, everything we need to keep our eyes

We canít go on, it seems this conversationís done
Itís so hard to win these fights and love you at the same time
So take my hand till grace makes her way to bend
Till the things Iíve set to ruin only lead to my own end

Draw us in, send us out
Draw us in, send us out
Draw us in, pour us out
Help us to believe

Behind the Song:
CHARLIE LOWELL: Our desire is to be in a conversation- about love, hope, the life of Jesus- not to figure out answers and put people in boxes. God, keep us in the process, with open eyes and hearts.

DAN HASELTINE: The issues of our time, be they moral, political, or spiritual have caused us to choose sides and draw lines that donít help us love each other more.

STEVE MASON: I cannot make life work alone and know real freedom. God grant us vision to see the encouragement found in our collective journey as God's people.

MATT ODMARK: An old idea. Only with each other is sobriety possible; desirable.
