Songs on Sunday ~ Stars in the Night ~ 5/17/15

 
 Tenth Avenue North is one of my favorite bands.  I didn't realize they were who sing this song until I just looked it up on Youtube.  I've heard it on KLOVE and really liked it.
 
As I look at the lyrics of this song, they resonate with me.  "We chase the wind and tides", "We chase the reasons why".
 
Have you ever been in a situation where all you want to do is ask "WHY!?!"  I know I have been and I'm sure I will be again.  In those times, "Even in our shame grace makes a way through".
 
Aren't these lyrics amazing?  What talent the Lord has given the writers of this song.  What a blessing!
 
 


No matter where you lead
We wanna follow you
The trouble is we forget who we belong to
We chase the wind and tides
We chase the reasons why
Chase the spark inside each others eyes
Desires are at war
We want that final shore
Sailing on until we find what weve been looking for
Hallelujah
Were running to you
On fire from the mercy in your eyes
And through the dark
Singing we are yours
Your love will lead us through the fight
Like stars in the night
Stars in the night
Stars in the night
Lead us through the fight
We fix our eyes on what we know is true
Even in our shame grace makes a way through
We are obsession, a constellation
You are light in and out of every season
So we keep pressing on
With our redemption song
No one can undo what youve done
Hallelujah
Were running to you
On fire from the mercy in your eyes
And through the dark
Singing we are yours
Your love will lead us through the fightLike stars in the night
All our lives
For the other side
Where well never die
And in the darkest night
We will lift our eyes
The love that lies ahead is more than all we leave behind
Hallelujah
Were running to you
On fire from the mercy in your eyes
And through the dark
Singing we are yours
Your love will lead us through the fight
Like stars in the night
Stars in the night
Stars in the night
Lead us through this fight
Stars in the night

  1. I have never heard this song till this morning. I just want to say, 'Thank You!!!" as it blessed me just now. As I sat listening to the song both Philippians 2:14-15 & 2 Corinthians 4:7 went through my mind & I turned to read each of them. May you have a blessed Sunday!
