Paper Saints

Verse 1
When we come to Him with needs unspoken
For fear of tearing our facade
Then we're bound to leave the throne, unbroken
Without the healing pow'r of God
With a simple cut and paste religion
We unfold into an army of

CHORUS
Paper saints
Armed with a paper love
Covered by paper grace
We're just an army of
Paper saints

Verse 2
We portray that we're just frayed along the edges
While a stain is bleeding to the core
Happy just to wrap a tidy package
But how could we expect much more
When we come before the Great Physician
Pretending we're already healed

CHORUS

Bridge
Strip away the pretense
'til all that's left is who we are
Emptied, we receive Your love
Humbled, we can use Your pow'r

(And be more than) Paper Saints
With More than a paper love
Covered by unfailing grace
Washed in the Savior's blood

(We are more than) Paper Saints
With More than a paper love
Covered by unfailing grace
Much more than an army of
Paper Saints
Paper Saints
