Sanctus Real 33

Oh, I was just a young one

When I heard my mother pray

I’d never fall away

And where we came from

We didn’t have much

But she knew the secret to having everything

And she prayed, take this child of mine

Keep him in Your hands

And now I’m 33

Looking at this path behind me

And all You’ve brought me through

And I’ve made my mistakes

I’ve caused my share of heartache

But I have seen a mother’s prayer come true

Oh, Lord my heart still belongs to You

Now I look on those young lives

Stare in those precious eyes

And I understand why my mother prayed for us

She never gave up

And I know her prayers for me

They taught me to believe

So I pray, take this child of mine

And let me live to hear them say

I’m 33

Looking at this path behind me

And all You’ve brought me through

And I’ve made my mistakes

I’ve caused my share of heartache

But I have seen a father’s prayer come true

Oh, Lord my heart still belongs to You

Oh, I’m 33 and God I see how much I need you now

And there’s a prayer that carries me through every day of doubt

Lord, I want to be the kind of man who passes down

A legacy of faith and love that’s never burning out

Oh, I’m 33 and I still feel those prayers around me

And all they’ve brought me through

Sanctus Real After Today

After today I’ll get me out of this place

Into the world so I can set a new pace

Seems I’m on my own from here

Vision doesn’t seem so clear

Won’t You lay me in Your hands of grace

I’ve got a funny feeling that I’m gonna go away

Gonna face my future, gonna try to make the grade

I’ve got a ways to go from here and vision doesn’t seem so clear

But praise God He’s got a plan and understanding isn’t my place

After today I’m gonna come face to face

With a new world who knows I’m feeling this way

I’ve got a ways to go from here

I’m gonna overcome these fears

Still I’m gonna need Your hands of grace

I’ll be a bigger man… I’ll pray a bigger prayer

I’ll dream a bigger dream…for today.

Sanctus Real Audience Of One

Lord you see every part of me

I’m tired of feeling underground

It’s time to take this inside…

And all my insecurity

It always gets the best of me, now

You and I will be alright

If there’s nothing more to come

’cause Lord I know I sing tonight

For an audience of one

There’s something new inside of me

I’m overwhelmed by what i’ve found

Time to take this inside…

And all my insecurity

I won’t let it get the best of me, now

Time to turn this thing around

It’s time to turn this thing around

Far from these ordinary ways i’ll stay

So far from these ordinary ways i’ll stay

Sanctus Real ‘Til I Got To Know You

I tried perfecting myself

Would You love me more without my mistakes

I tried not to ask for Your help

Cuz I didn’t want to scare You away

Yeah I was always worried

I was gonna let You down

Oh, it felt like I was standing

In between the lost and found

Till I got to know You

You, I was at a place when You found a way

To break through

It’s true

I was just a skeptic

Till I got to know You, You

And it’s hard accepting Your grace

In a world where nothing’s free

For so long I was afraid

That You’d only see the worst in me

Yeah, I was always worried

You were gonna figure out

That I wasn’t what You wanted

Wasn’t worth being around

Till I got to know You

You, I was at a place when You found a way

To break through

It’s true

I was just a skeptic

Till I got to know You, You

And you have always been on my side

I finally see it

It took so long to believe in it

Cuz I was always worried

I was gonna let you down

Till I got to know You, You

Till I got to know You, You, You

Till I got know You, You

I was at a place when you found a way

To break through

It’s true

I was just a skeptic

Till I got to know You

Sanctus Real All I Want

So early morning when you come to me

Comfort me

Stop rewind and…

Play back that melody

No early warning when You come to me

Comfort me

I don’t know ’cause i’ve been told

I just believe

We don’t want to work ’cause it never works out

We don’t want to talk ’cause words

Get around

All i want is to

Bring it back to love

I’ve got, you’ve got, we’ve gotta give it to

The one who made me

So sweetly coming back to memory

Done for me

I’ve got something that they won’t believe

But we don’t want to come

’cause we’ll never come around

We don’t want to love

’cause we never learned how

All You have is all i need

All You have has set me free

Sanctus Real Easier On My Heart

If I could run the distance

Between Your heart and mine

If I could climb my way up

To the highest point

I could see everything that You want me to see

I could breathe the air that You breathe

I want to breathe the air that You breathe

It would be a little easier on my heart

If I had a taste of Heaven

It would be a little easier to hang on

If it wasn’t so hard to imagine

Take, take, take me in Your arms

Take, take, take me in Your arms

Take me in Your arms

Make it a little easier on my heart

I’ve wandered lonely spaces

In search of who You are

I hold the times I’m with You

So closely to my heart

How else could I know the power of love

If it never lifted me up

If it never lifted me up

C’mon take, take, take me in Your arms

Don’t let me get away

Hold me close to Your heart

Take, take, take, me in Your arms

Don’t let me fall away

When I’m falling apart

Sanctus Real Eternal

Along with every other earthly thing

So I will set my heart on a higher plain

Where my treasure lies with You

Sanctus Real Closer

I’m not satisfied in this lifetime

I’m following you to the other side

There’s nothing that can change my mind

You’re all I need

You’re the only tie that binds my heart

Away from you I’m falling apart

We need to be closer than we are

You’re all I need

So what can I do to get closer?

I know there is more my heart can bear

I give you control ’cause I need you

To take me there

Like a bird flying southI’m seeking you out

And there’s no rope that can tie me down

I’m running home, I’m a slave set free

You’re all I need

I am waiting

Draw me closer

I am waiting

Make me stronger

Sanctus Real Bend Not Break

Time will tell if we really have what it takes

This live can crush us underneath its weight

When the river rushes over your feet

When the bulls are running through your streets

You don’t have to run from the fears behind you

Turn around and I’ll stand beside you

Take my hand and remember

We may bend but will not break

Together we may bend

But will not break

Oh, on the front line you’re gonna feel the bullets, gonna feel the heat

And when the battles that you fight call you to turn the other cheek

When the fire at your back burns bright

And when the mountains up ahead are so high

You don’t have to run from the fears behind you

Turn around and I’ll stand beside you

Take my hand and remember

We may bend but will not break

Steel your heart and lift your head

‘Cause we have love and faithfulness

So take my hand and remember

We may bend but will not break

Together we may bend

But will not break

And if ever you should feel like giving up

Remember that God is with us

And if ever you should fear you may lose

Remember that you don’t have to run

Sanctus Real Changed

I thought it’d be different

Was hoping by now

I would be closer

Have it all figured out

Been counting the reasons

Been feeling the weight

Of all of my failures

And every mistake

And though I cannot see

I know you promised me

You’re making a new heart

Where the old one used to be

I’m gonna be changed

A little each day

Even when I fall I’ll trust You when You say

I’m gonna be changed

By Your grace

You won’t let me stay the same as yesterday

I’m gonna be changed

I look in the mirror

I see in my face

The pain that I’ve carried

Is being replaced

There’s a brighter future

I see it in my eyes

There used to be darkness

But now there’s a fire

And now that I can see

Everything You promised me

You’re making a new heart

I’m not who I used to be

I’m gonna be changed

A little each day

Even when I fall I’ll trust You when You say

I’m gonna be changed

By Your grace

You won’t let me stay the same as yesterday

I’m gonna be changed

I’m gonna be changed

‘Cause the One who began a good work in me

Is faithful to make me complete

You’re the Author, Perfector, my Hope and my Healer

The reason that I believe

I can change, oh I can change

I’m gonna be changed

A little each day

Even when I fall I’ll trust You when You say

I’m gonna be changed

By Your grace

You won’t let me stay the same as yesterday

I’m gonna be changed

I’m gonna be changed

I’m gonna be changed

Oh I can change
