02. Every Man

The Altar and The Door
by Casting Crowns



 

Iím the man with all Iíve ever wanted
All the toys and playing games
I am the one who pours your coffee, corner booth each Saturday
I am your daughterís favorite teacher
I am the leader of the band
I sit behind you in the bleachers
I am every man

Iím the coach of every winning team and still a loser in my mind
I am the soldier in the airport facing giants one more time
I am the woman shamed and haunted by the cry of unborn life
Iím every broken man, nervous child, lonely wife

Is there hope for every man
A solid place where we can stand
In this dry and weary land
Is there hope for every man
Is there love that never dies
Is there peace in troubled times
Someone help me understand
Is there hope for every man

Seems thereís just so many roads to travel, itís hard to tell where they will lead
My life is scarred and my dreams unraveled
Now Iím scared to take the leap
If I could find someone to follow who knows my pain and feels the weight
The uncertainty of my tomorrow, the guilt and pain of yesterday

There is hope for every man
A solid place where we can stand
In this dry and weary land
There is hope for every man
There is Love that never dies
There is peace in troubled times
Will we help them understand?
Jesus is hope for every man

Behind the Song:
'This is the anthem of the world. The world is full of normal everyday people who are on a search for hope and happiness. For many, darkness has pulled the wool over their eyes, and they are trying to make it happen on their own. Theyíre searching and theyíre listening. Question is, are we saying anything? ~2 Corinthians 5:16-21 / 2 Corinthians 1:3-5'

'Stylistically, this song is very different in the way the guitars work. I think that alone makes it stand out, but I want people to walk away talking about the wordsÖ ďEvery ManĒ sings to us. Itís the world calling out to us, to the Church. When people hear it, I hope it makes them want to get out of their cars and begin to see people again for the first time, the way Jesus sees them.' - Mark Hall (Casting Crowns)
