People of God

People of God | Gungor

we could have tongues of angels
we could move mountains with our faith
we could give everything away
but if we don’t have love
we’re left with nothing

we could see blind eyes opened
know all the mysteries of our faith
we could sing all the highest praise
but if we don’t have love
we’re left with nothing

people of God rise up
rise up and shine God’s love
we are the light of the world
of the world oh
we are the light of the world
of the world oh

love is the what holds it all together
love never fails, it never dies
there is no deeper truth
we know that God is love, our God is love
tear down the walls that divide us
let love rebuild and unite us
all we need is
all we need is love

Fireflies and Songs

fireflies and songs | sara groves

thirty years ago i was a little girl // riding in the back seat of the car // a woman sang you don’t bring me flowers anymore // i felt a sadness in my little heart

we’re looking for the music // in the music box // tearing it to pieces // trying to find a song

i was drawn to you in ways i can’t explain // we fought like crazy but i couldn’t stay away // piled on expectations and lots of blame // like we couldn’t do it any other way

we’re looking for a firefly // moving through the night // staring at the one place // swear it never lights

were you surprised our hearts were not like ticking clocks // with faces and hands easy to read // we both wished if only in the land of oz // longed for things we’d never really need

now we’re standing in the kitchen // all pretense is gone // you kiss me on the shoulder // fireflies and song
