Lyrics

Verse 1

This is the story of a runaway
With no way home
And no way out
I threw the best of me away
I had my chance it's too late now
Too far gone and too ashamed
To think that You'd
Still know my name
But love refused to let
My story end that way

Chorus

You didn't wait for me
To find my way to You
I couldn't cross that distance
Even if I wanted to
You came running after me
When anybody else would've turned
And left me at my worst
Love moved first

Verse 2

What kind of grace relentless grace
Would chase this rebel down
Crawl into this prisoner's cage
Take my hand and pull me out
You knew I couldn't
Make the change
So You became the change in me
And now I live to tell the story
Of the God who rescues

Chorus

You didn't wait for me
To find my way to You
I couldn't cross that distance
Even if I wanted to
You came running after me
When anybody else would've turned
And left me at my worst
Love moved first

Bridge

From the throne to the manger
From a manger to the grave
Your cross is the proof
Love made the first move

Bridge 2

From a grave meant to keep You
To a stone rolled away
Your cross is the proof
Love made the first move

Bridge 3

I remember where You found me
I'm amazed by where I stand
Your cross is the proof
That love made the first move

Chorus

You didn't wait for me
To find my way to You
I couldn't cross that distance
Even if I wanted to
You came running after me
When anybody else would've turned
And left me at my worst
Love moved first

New album from Casting Crowns - "Only Jesus"

Tuesday, November 20, 2018

GRAMMY-winning band Casting Crowns recently released their newest studio album, Only JesusWhen discussing the band’s latest project, Casting Crowns' front man Mark Hall takes great pains to shift the focus off of the band, off of himself, and solely onto the one they sing about—Jesus. "There's much talk these days about legacy," shares Hall about the new album. "How do we want to be remembered? The more I think about it, the more I'm reminded that anything in me that's worth remembering are the things that Jesus has worked on, and is still working on in me. On my own, I have nothing to offer the world, but Jesus does - so don't mind me. Jesus is the only name to remember." This new album features the single, "Only Jesus," which is one of the fastest-charting songs of 2018 and already a Top 10 hit. Only Jesus is now available on Apple Music and Spotify and you can pick up the worship-leading resources today.
