Break Open the Sky

  • From the lips of desperation
    Different nations, every man's cry
    Comes a song of anticipation
    As we wait for a crack in the sky
    Side by side, we recognize that
    Hope has brought us together tonight
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    Break open the sky
    Won't You turn off gravity so we can fly?
    We wanna see Your face
    So tear the roof off this place
    Jesus, break open the sky
    So we sing oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    We believe in, and we imagine
    'Til the dawn of our beautiful dream
    Through the noise, I hear the voices
    Melodies that are flooding our streets
    Not forgotten, are your people
    So let a thousand church bells ring
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    Break open the sky
    Won't You turn off gravity so we can fly?
    We wanna see Your face
    So tear the roof off this place
    Break open the sky
    So we sing oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    So we sing oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    Come, Jesus, come
    Come quickly, come quickly
    Come, Jesus, come
    Come quickly, come quickly
    Come, Jesus, come
    Come quickly, come quickly, come quickly

    Break open the sky
    Won't You turn off gravity so we can fly?
    We wanna see Your face
    So tear the roof off this place
    Jesus, break open the sky, everybody say

    Break open the sky
    Won't You break open the sky?
    Turn off gravity so we can fly
    We wanna see Your face
    So tear the roof off this place
    Break open the sky

    So we sing oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    We sing oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    So we sing oh, oh
    So we sing oh, oh

    Break open, open the sky
    Break open, open the sky
    Break open, open the sky
    Open the sky, open the sky Writer/s: ED CASH, MARK STUART, TOBY MCKEEHAN
