How long has it been?
Since I’ve been happy…
How long has it been?
Since I stopped wrapping…
Wrapping up all my feelings and emotions
Knowing one day there is going to be an explosion
How long am I going to continue this life?
When does it stop? I’m empty into the night
When will my day come?
When will right, not feel wrong?
What’s wrong with my mind? Why do I think I have control of time?
Someday it has to change, I can’t go on like this, I need a refreshing rain
A shower to come down over me,
So I can be washed of this, and be free
Free from what I used to know,
And be like a seed, that starts to grow
To break out of my shell, of where I once knew
Pushing out into the darkness, and forming into a shoot
Starting out small and weak
Growing strength, as I venture into the deep
To feel the rain come down, to quench my thirst
To be rooted miles underground, completed covered, immersed
Growing takes time, energy, and patience
A seed can stay a seed, it’s beyond complacent
A seed doesn’t have to change at all
Years will go by, and it will still be small
Never knew what could have been in that seed,
It won’t know what it felt like, to be a tree
To have the sun shine down on your leaves
To feel the wind brush against you, in the breeze
When the storms come, to shake you, to blow you down
The fight to stay rooted, a fight to stand strong
Don’t loose hope in what you were created to be
God doesn’t make mistakes, even with trees
God created everything, just as it was designed to be
If you haven’t found your place in the Earth, find it in He
He that came to give you life, more than you live right now
His forgiving heart in you, one that wears a crown
Our King! Our Savior! We bless you forever more!
Our Father! Our Teacher! Here’s our cup, that You may pour!
Into us, till it’s over flows
God we breaks ourselves, so we can grow
To give not just things we have in our hands, but give from our hearts, through our Spiritual Man
The one God gave to us, the Holy Spirit
So your heart would rejoice, and our joy came with it
Joy that no one can take, that is God’s promise
Joy in the Lord that provides our strength, even if your a novice
We have to start somewhere, one day it does have to change
Why not make that day today, here comes the rain
Jesus washed you in His blood,
To provide what this world couldn’t
He came that you would know of Him, and be of flesh, not wooden
Jesus traded your stone heart, for a flesh one
He came that You would know Him, and not just know someone
Seek all answers in Him, He will never fail you
He is your Lord and Savior, your God that’s true
Unfailing and Protecting
Powerful and Resurrecting
Lord of Hosts, King on High
Risen Savior, Father in the sky
God we need You to dig out of us what’s to be, we know we were made to be a tree
A tree planted by the stream, one that is in You, and one that is free
I tree that never fears of heat or drought, always green and never without
Never fails to produce fruit, in it’s season
Always on time Jesus, You are the reason
We trust in You for what You provide, we come out Lord,
We no longer hide
We desire what You have for our life, we turn it over to You, we kill the strife
Thank You for Your blood that washed us clean! Thank You Lord, that we are free indeed!
We praise Your name with all we have! Hallelujah, Lord! Our hearts are glad!
