Lift Your Head Weary Sinner (Chains)

Album: Neon Steeple (2014)
  • Lift your head weary sinner, the river's just ahead
    Down the path of forgiveness, salvation's waiting there
    You built a mighty fortress 10,000 burdens high
    Love is here to lift you up, here to lift you high

    If you're lost and wandering
    Come stumbling in like a prodigal child
    See the walls start crumbling
    Let the gates of glory open wide

    All who've strayed and walked away, unspeakable things you've done
    Fix your eyes on the mountain, let the past be dead and gone
    Come all saints and sinners, you can't outrun God
    Whatever you've done can't overcome the power of the blood

    If you're lost and wandering
    Come stumbling in like a prodigal child
    See the walls start crumbling
    Let the gates of glory open wide

    If you're lost and wrecked again
    Come stumbling in like a prodigal child
    See the walls start crumbling
    Let the gates of glory be open wide

    Lost and wandering
    Come stumbling in like a prodigal child
    See the walls start crumbling
    Let the gates of glory open wide

    If you're lost and wrecked again
    Come stumbling in like a prodigal child
    See the walls start crumbling
    Let the gates of glory be open wide
    Let the gates of glory be open wide
    Let the gates of glory be open wide
