Surely children weren’t made for the streets
And Fathers were not made to leave
Surely this isn’t how it should be
Let Your kingdom come

Surely nations were not made for war
Or the broken made to be ignored
Surely this couldn’t be what You saw
Let Your kingdom come
Here in my heart

And I will live to carry your compassion
To love a world that’s broken
To be your hands and feet
And I will give with the life that I’ve been given
And go beyond religion to see the world be changed
By the power of Your Name
The power of Your Name

Surely life wasn’t made to regret
And the lost were not made to forget
Surely faith without action is dead
Let Your Kingdom come
Lord break this heart

Jesus Your Name
Is a shelter for the hurting
Your Name
Is a refuge the weak
Only Your Name
Can take the undeserving
Jesus Your Name
Holds everything I need

i realize i’ve blogged a lot of song lyrics lately. that’s because there’s a lot of wiser people out there than me, and some of those people write beautiful songs 🙂
