  • How he got there is anybody's guess
    Spirit broken, he was drowning in a mess
    He himself created
    Now a rescue was his plea
    To save him from an early grave his soul had to be freed
    The word surrender never sounded good, but now his life was empty so he figured that he should
    When he knelt his body trembled, like a weight had been removed
    Lifting up his head he felt a peace so bright and new

    Then he saw the steeple rising through the trees
    Reminding him of a man who died so we'd be free
    Jesus brought the gift of hope, paid for you and me
    So a miracle could happen at the steeple in the trees

    Soon the changes would happen in his life. A new perception, desire to give up wrong for right.
    To look outside himself and see through another's eyes. Born again, he'd found the joy behind that old disguise

    Then he saw the steeple rising through the trees
    Reminding him of a man who died so we'd be free
    Jesus brought the gift of hope, paid for you and me
    So a miracle could happen at the steeple in the trees

    Yeah, to look outside himself and see through another's eyes… yeah, yeah!

    Then he saw the steeple rising through the trees
    Reminding him of a man who died so we'd be free
    Jesus brought the gift of hope, paid for you and me
    So that miracle could happen at the steeple in trees... at the steeple in the trees.
