The Struggle

Album: The Struggle (2012)
  • There's a wreckage, there's a fire
    There's a weakness in my love
    There's a hunger I can't control
    Lord I falter and I fall down
    Then I hold on to the chains you broke
    When You came down and saved my soul
    Save my soul

    Hallelujah
    We are free to struggle
    We're not struggling to be free
    Your blood bought and makes us children
    So children drop your chains and sing

    So I look, do I still fail
    Do I withhold, do I still give into temptation
    On my own I am bankrupt
    I will trust You, I'll take you at your word
    You promise

    Hallelujah
    We are free to struggle
    We're not struggling to be free
    Your blood bought and makes us children
    So children drop your chains and sing

    Hallelujah, death is overcome
    And we are breathing
    Hallelujah our stone hearts become flesh
    A flesh that's beating
    Hallelujah chains have been undone
    And we are singing
    Hallelujah the fire has begun
    Can you feel it?

    Hallelujah, death is overcome
    And we are breathing
    Hallelujah our stone hearts become flesh
    A flesh that's beating
    Hallelujah chains have been undone
    And we are singing
    Hallelujah the fire has begun
    Can you feel it?

    Hallelujah
    We are free to struggle
    We're not struggling to be free
    Your blood bought and makes us children
    So children drop your chains and sing Writer/s: BRENDON SHIRLEY, JASON JAMISON, JEFF OWEN, MIKE DONEHEY, RUBEN JUAREZ
