Lyrics

Verse 1

I tempered the storm
Though your faith was small
I prayed while you slept
And the night waged war

Verse 2

We stood in the fire
And we walked on sea
And we drank of the wine
That was made of Me

Chorus

Don't
Turn your eyes from Me
For My love won't be undone

Chorus

Don't hide your face from Me
For My light has surely come

Tag

Surely come

Verse 3

I carried that cross
And I felt your pain
I took up your crown
And I wore your shame

Verse 4

And death was a fire
And its teeth were grim
But I left it behind
Along with all your sin

Chorus

Don't turn away from Me
For My love won't be undone

Chorus

Don't hide your face from Me
For My light has surely come

Tag

Surely come

Refrain

Lift up your eyes and see
Heaven is closer than you know

Refrain

Lift up your voice and sing
Know that My love won't let you go
And I won't forsake you

Refrain

Lift up your eyes and see
Heaven is closer than you know
Know I'll never leave you

Refrain

So lift up your voice and sing
Know that My love won't let you go
And My light has surely come

Breakdown

Surely come surely come
And I'm closer than you know

Instrumental

And I'm closer than you know

Bridge

Lord I hear You I know You're there
Closer now than my
Skin and bones could dare
Breathing deep within me
You are always with me

Bridge

I can see You where eyes can't stare
Brighter now than
The sun could ever dare
Breathing all around me
God I know You're with me here

Bridge

Lord I hear You I know You're there
Closer now than my
Skin and bones could dare
Breathing deep within me
You are always with me

Bridge

I can see You where eyes can't stare
Brighter now than
The sun could ever dare
Breathing all around me
God I know You're with me here

Outro

For I'm Yours and You are mine
And my soul knows well
You are here

Outro

You are here
And my soul will praise You
And my soul will praise Your Name

Outro

Singing Holy is Your Name
Jesus Jesus

MultiTracks from Empires by Hillsong UNITED Now Available!

Tuesday, May 26, 2015

Having recently been named Billboard Magazine's Top Christian Artist of the Year, Hillsong UNITED has just released their highly anticipated new album, Empires.  "Empires is the story of two worlds," band leader Joel Houston explains.  "Our prayer and desire has been to simply create the most honest project we could. Songs that seek to listen first, and then with God’s breath speak the good news reality of Jesus and His grace into the dichotomy, tension and hopeful-collision of this broken and fragile world we see here and now, and the unshakeable and mysterious reality of the Kingdom we can’t see, but no-less know is here - and NOW.
