12. More To This Life (re:created)

re:creation
by Steven Curtis Chapman



 

Today I watched in silence as people passed me by
And I strained to see if there was something hidden in their eyes
But they all looked back at me as if to say
Life just goes on

The old familiar story told in different ways
Make the most of your own journey from the cradle to the grave
Dream your dreams tomorrow because today
Life must go on

But there’s more to this life than living and dying
More than just trying to make it through the day
More to this life, more than these eyes alone can see
And there’s more than this life alone can be

Tonight he lies in silence staring into space
And looks for ways to make tomorrow better than today
But in the morning light it looks the same
Life just goes on

He takes care of his family, he takes care of his work
And every Sunday morning he takes his place at the church
And somehow he still feels a need to search
But life just goes on

So where do we start to find every part
Of what makes this life complete
If we turn our eyes to Jesus we’ll find
Life’s true beginning is there at the cross where He died
He died to bring us…
