Songs on Sunday ~ Chains ~ 7/26/15

 
I'm so excited to feature another brand-new-to-me song this week!  I heard the first time while at work and listening to KLOVE on my computer.  I thought "This is new..."  I then had to click on the app to find out who it was.  I am increasingly liking David Crowder!
 
The song is subtitled "Chains" and I love the background lyrics of "Chains".  You HAVE to listen to it.
 
One of the repeating phrases is also one of my favorites:  "if you're lost and wandering come stumbling in like a prodigal child".  I have felt like I was wandering around and stumbling many, many times.  Isn't it wonderful when you "see the walls start crumbling" and the path is made clear?
 
Have you ever felt that way?  How does it make you feel to see the walls start crumbling?
 


Lift Your Head Weary Sinner (Chains)

lift your head weary sinner
the river's just ahead
down the path of forgiveness
salvation's waiting there
you built a mighty fortress
10,000 burdens high
love is here to lift you up
here to lift you high
if you're lost and wandering
come stumbling in like a prodigal child
see the walls start crumbling
let the gates of glory open wide
all who've strayed and walked away
unspeakable things you've done
fix your eyes on the mountain
let the past be dead and gone
come all saints and sinners
you can't outrun God
whatever you've done
can't overcome the power of the blood
if you're lost and wandering
come stumbling in like a prodigal child

see the walls start crumbling
let the gates of glory open wide
if youre lost and wrecked again
come stumbling in like a prodigal child
see the walls start crumbling
let the gates of glory open wide
if you are lost and wandering
come stumbling in like a prodigal child
see the walls start crumbling
let the gates of glory open wide
if youre lost and wrecked gain
come stumbling in like a prodigal child
see the walls start crumbling
let the gates of glory open wide
let the gates of glory open wide
let the gates of glory open wide

  1. I love Crowder and it was my son who first introduced me to his music. He is a master at writing lyrics that speak to places in your life and to your emotions. My favorite song of his right now is "Come As You Are". It truly filled a hole in my life at a time I needed it. So glad you shared this at The Weekend Brew.
