Faith Hope Love - Lyrics by Four And Twenty Elders


Lyrics
Close to me are many things
Like stones upon my soul
Swelling up inside my heart
They battle for control
Please pierce my bliss
Reality rears its ugly head
Gripping me so I can't speak
Or know or understand
Faith Hope Love
After these one thing remains
The greatest one is Love
Knock me over, call me empty
Part of me is gone
Just a thought to leave me naked
Nothing is really wrong
Plant a seed of fear or two
The future is never clear
I can't see, the glass is dark
I barely know what's here
Faith has changed the way things be
Mountains thrown into the sea
I have hope, can see it now
Gonna make it through somehow
Love is perfect, true love never fails.
Something's shaking up the ground
Ripping up the sky
I think I know what time it is
Should I laugh or cry?
Jesus doesn't know what time
They're gonna ring the bell
Some going up, some coming down
To heaven or to hell.
