Worlds Apart

Spread the love

“Worlds Apart” from Greatest Hits by Jars Of Clay. Released: 2008. Track 4. Genre: Christian & Gospel.

I am the only one to blame for this
Somehow it all ends up the same
Soaring on the wings of selfish pride, flew too high
And like a chorus, I collide
With a world I try so hard to leave behind
To rid myself of all but love
To give and die
To turn away and not become
Another nail to pierce the skin of One who loved
More deeply than the oceans, more abundant than the tears
Of a world embracing every heartache
And can I be the one to sacrifice?
Or grip the spear and watch the blood and water flow?
Take my world apart
(To need You) I am on my knees
(To love You) Take my world apart
(To need You) Broken on my knees
All said and done, I stand alone
Amongst remainings of a life I should not own
Takes all I am to believe
In the mercy that covers me
Did You really have to die for me?
All I am for all You are
Because what I need and what I believe
Are worlds apart
And I pray…
Take my world apart
(To need You) I am on my knees
(To love You) Take my world apart
(To need You) Broken on my knees
On my knees
I look beyond the empty cross
Forgetting what my life has cost
And wipe away the crimson stains
Dull the nails that still remains
More and more I need You now
I owe You more each passing hour
Battle between grace and pride
Gave up not so long ago
So steal my heart and take the pain
And wash the feet and cleanse my pride
Take the selfish, take the weak
And all the things I cannot hide
Take the beauty, take my tears
Sin-soaked heart, make it Yours
Take my world all apart
Take it now, take it now
And serve the ones that I despise (To love You)
Speak the words I can’t deny (Take my world apart)
Watch the world I used to love (To need You)
Fall to dust and blow away (I am on my knees)
I look beyond the empty cross (To love You)
Forgetting what my life has cost (Take my world apart)
I wipe away the crimson stains (To need You)
Dull the nails that still remain (Broken on my knees)
Steal my heart and take the pain (To love You)
Take the selfish, take the weak (To need You)
And all the things I cannot hide
Take the beauty, take my tears (On my knees)
Take my world apart, take my world apart (To love You)
And I pray (To need You)
And I pray and I pray (On my knees)
Take my world apart
Worlds apart
