• Ryan Stevenson - The Gospel Lyrics

    From the album The Gospel (Single)

    A restless generation, we're turning over every stone
    Hoping to find salvation in a world that's left us cold
    Can we get back to the altar, back to the arms of our first love?
    There's only one way to the father and he's calling out to us

    (chorus)
    To the captive it looks like freedom
    To the orphan it feels like home
    To the skeptic it might sound crazy
    To believe in a God who loves
    In a world where our hearts are breaking
    And we're lost in the mess we've made
    Like a blinding light in the dead of night
    It's the Gospel, the Gospel that makes a way

    It's the cure for our condition, it's the good news for us all It's greater than religion, it's the power of the cross
    So can we get back to the altar, back to the arms of our first love?
    There's only one way to the father and he's calling out to us

    (chorus)
    To the captive it looks like freedom
    To the orphan it feels like home
    To the skeptic it might sound crazy
    To believe in a God who loves
    In a world where our hearts are breaking
    And we're lost in the mess we've made
    Like a blinding light in the dead of night
    It's the Gospel, the Gospel that makes a way

    In my own life it means forgiveness, when I know I deserved the fall
    It called me out of my darkness, and carried me to the cross
    In a moment my eyes were opened, in that moment my heart was changed
    Like a blinding light in the dead of night it's the gospel

    (chorus)
    To the captive it looks like freedom
    To the orphan it feels like home
    To the skeptic it might sound crazy
    To believe in a God who loves
    In a world where our hearts are breaking
    And we're lost in the mess we've made
    Like a blinding light in the dead of night
    It's the Gospel, the gospel that makes a way
