The Gospel Lyrics

Verse 1:
A restless generation, we’re turning over every stone
Hoping to find salvation in a world that’s left us cold
Can we get back to the altar, back to the arms of our first love
There’s only one way to the father and he’s calling out to us

CHORUS
To the captive it looks like freedom
To the orphan it feels like home
To the skeptic it might sound crazy
To believe in a God who loves
In a world where our hearts are breaking
And we’re lost in the mess we’ve made
Like a blinding light in the dead of night
It’s the Gospel, the Gospel that makes a way

Verse 2:
It’s the cure for our condition, it’s the good news for us all, it’s greater than religion, it’s the power of the cross
So can we get back to the altar, back to the arms of our first love
There’s only one way to the father and he’s calling out to us

CHORUS
To the captive it looks like freedom
To the orphan it feels like home
To the skeptic it might sound crazy
To believe in a God who loves
In a world where our hearts are breaking
And we’re lost in the mess we’ve made
Like a blinding light in the dead of night
It’s the Gospel, the Gospel that makes a way

Bridge
In my own life it means forgiveness, when I know I deserved the fall
It called me out of my darkness, and carried me to the cross.
In a moment my eyes were opened, in that moment my heart was changed
Like a blinding light in the dead of night it’s the gospel

CHORUS
To the captive it looks like freedom
To the orphan it feels like home
To the skeptic it might sound crazy
To believe in a God who loves
In a world where our hearts are breaking
And we’re lost in the mess we’ve made
Like a blinding light in the dead of night
It’s the Gospel, the gospel that makes a way
