Deep As It Is Wide

Album: How Mercy Looks From Here (2013)
  • There's a place at the edge of the sky
    Where there's a love deep as it is wide
    The weak are strong, the hungry are all fed
    And there's a breeze from the angels flying overhead
    Oh yeah

    And there's a path, a glorious light
    That guides you up the mountainside
    And at the top, if you could you'd cry
    'Cause you see pure love for the very first time, mmm

    Deep as it is wide

    Every breath taking me closer
    Every step leading to paradise
    They say the faithful get to go there
    I believe there's a love
    Deep as it is wide

    And I hear, when you get to the river
    You look back for the very last time
    And when you cross, you get washed off forever
    Hurry up boy, eternity's on the other side, ohh

    Deep as it is wide, yeah

    Every breath taking me closer
    Every step leading to paradise
    They say the faithful get to go there
    I believe there's a love
    Deep as it is wide

    Every nation, color and creed
    Like grace pouring out, far as the eye can see
    Singing praises up to a King
    'Cause He died, for a crown
    Deep as it is wide, yeah, yeah, yeah

    Every breath taking me closer
    Every step leading to paradise
    They say the faithful get to go there and
    I believe there's a love
    I believe in a love, oh yeah
    I believe there's a love
    Deep as it is wide, oh yeah, oh

    There's a place at the edge of the sky
    Where there's a love, deep as it is wideWriter/s: ERIC PASLAY
