10. Empty

Rise
by Building 429



 

I know what lives inside
When I hide far behind
The eyes that are so bright
Wanting our worlds to coincide
I know how much it costs
To fall prey, to be one lost
But Iíll give my heart wholly
Even if I fall to the lies

Iíll find peace with you again
When Iím holding out my sinful hands
Delivered and captured again
Though I was living like an empty man
Youíre washing me, while youíre leading me home again

I know the soul of me
And everything that tempts me
So I guard my heart closely
I wonít be falling for the lies

ĎCause I found peace with you again
When I was holding out my sinful hands
Delivered and captured again
Though I was living like an empty man
Youíre still teaching me, as your leading me to the end

But the world
Would love me to believe
That it revolves around me
I can finally see
That the world
Would love to captivate
A childlike heart that aches
To fill the empty space

But Iíve found peace with you again
Though Iím holding out my sinful hands
Delivered and captured again
Though I was living like an empty man
Youíll be washing me, as youíre leading me to the end

written by Jason Roy

Behind the Song:
"For some reason Iím always drawn to a song about grace in spite of imperfection Ė probably because Iím HUMAN! Some would say this is overused subject matter, but I would argue that it cannot be talked about enough. Every single person on the planet struggles with the concept of grace without condition and that is why we must keep telling the story. Guard your heart closely and fight with all your might to stay focused on the Lord. But when you fall donít ever doubt the way with which you will be received into the Redeemerís arms." - Jason Roy (Building 429)
