07. No Greater Love

The Shelter
by Jars of Clay


Is it life in vain
Are we ghosts rattling chains
When we get what we want
Are the problems still the same

ĎCause my hands canít heal
While Iím holding on so tight
And my heart wonít care enough
To pick a better fight

Show me the beauty of a life
Show me the beauty of a life
Show me the beauty of a life

No greater love, no greater love
And you say, thereís no greater love

Is it still my turn
I think Iím the last one left to learn
That the life I lose
Is the least of my concerns

Show me the beauty of a life
Show me the beauty of a life
Show me the beauty of a life
Laid down

Behind the Song:
CHARLIE LOWELL: The simplest picture of true love- to lay down our lives for one another. Yet the toughest daily call, to move beyond ourselves and lift each other up.

DAN HASELTINE: No greater love is there but that we lay down our lives for each other. We can pour ourselves out for the sake of others.

STEVE MASON: We understand the sacrifices of living in community as we model it for one another. This is where love is revealed.

MATT ODMARK: This song is for me: Show me the beauty of a life laid down, so that I may have the courage to do the same.
