Lyrics

Sparrow Song

Written By: Susie Tillman

Wouldn’t I roam and ramble
Wouldn’t I fly away
So unafraid to gamble
So unashamed to pay

Didn’t I taste the honey
Didn’t I take it all
Laughing like it was funny
When I began to fall

And fall I did from that place
And then I hid from Your face

Chorus:
But You found me
When I’d broken my wings again
You found me
And You taught me to sing again
And now this sparrow has found a home
Now this sparrow is not alone
‘Cause Your eyes are on me
And Your love is with me
And Your life is in me
And I am home

Can you believe this rover
Has found a dwelling place?
Can you believe that Jesus
Wants me to seek His face?

Wouldn’t I trade a thousand
Days from my storied past
For just a moment with You
Here in Your courts at last

I’m staying here in Your peace
With no more fear just release, since…(Chorus)

Bridge:
My heart and my flesh cried out
For the living God
I flew all around this world
To find Your house.

Love You, Lord

It all happened during family prayers last night
Daddy started us off and he started us right
Then big sister started in to pray
Pretty soon we had heard all about her day
And then Daddy turned to Nancy, two year-old Nancy

And Nancy said Ah -- Ah -- Ah -- Ah
Ah -- Ah -- Ah -- Ah (and we were watchin’ her)
Ah -- Ah -- Ah -- Ah (and she closed her eyes)
Ah -- Ah -- Love you, Lord!

Well everybody in the room just had to laugh
And prayin’ hasn’t been the same, boy, after that
And we learned it from Nancy -- prayer doesn’t have to be fancy.
Just sing it out… (chorus)

Ah -- Ah -- Ah -- Ah (Just like Nancy did)
Ah -- Ah -- Ah -- Ah (And sister Lily sang)
Ah -- Ah -- Ah -- Ah (sing to Jesus)
Ah -- Ah -- Love you, Lord!

Ah -- Ah -- Ah -- Ah (raise your voices now)
Ah -- Ah -- Ah -- Ah (sing it from your heart
Ah -- Ah -- Ah -- Ah ( just for Jesus)
Ah -- Ah -- Love you, Lord! … Love you, Lord… …. Love you, Lord….

You Saw My Heart

Written By: Susie Tillman

I am the woman at the well
I am the sinner on her knees
And I am letting down my hair to wipe Your feet

And I am Thomas, wanting proof
And I am Peter, hear that crowing
And I am leaning back to ask, Where are You going?

Chorus: Jesus, You looked into my eyes
Jesus, You saw through my disguise
And You saw something there worth saving
And what's really so amazing...
Jesus, You saw my heart

I am the leper hiding near
I am the man who finally stands
And I am Judas, see the silver in my hands

I'm that rich man who walks away
And I am shouting for my sight
I am the thief that's on Your left, and on Your right
And I have danced before a king
And then I sent You to your grave
Now I am crying here, beside an empty cave

And do I love you more than this?
And do I love you more than these?
And do I love you? Lord, stop asking, won't you please?

Chorus: Jesus, You looked into my eyes
Jesus, You saw through my disguise
And You saw something there worth saving
And what's really so amazing...
Jesus, You saw my heart

I am the woman at the well
I am the sinner on her knees
Now...I am letting down my hair to wipe Your feet

On the Way from Me to You

Written By: Susie Tillman

I finally stop to look back over my shoulder for You
I find myself so far from where You are
But I’m so tired and teary and woeful and weary
That…

I can’t meet You halfway today, no
Can’t meet You halfway today
Can’t make it halfway today
But I will take a step in Your direction
I will take that step
On the way from me to You
That’s what I’ll do

I heard You calling my name
(You know my name!)
Kept right on walking, just the same to my shame
And I’m so sorry, believe me, I hear You, don’t leave me
But…

I can’t meet You halfway today, oh
Can’t meet You halfway today, Jesus,
Can’t make it halfway today
But I can take a step in Your direction
Help me take that step
On the way from me to You

Bridge:
And when I stumble I will not be rejected
I’ve come to find out that You never expected
Halfway…halfway…from me

You knew I can’t meet You halfway today, no
Can’t meet you… can’t meet You today
I can’t make it halfway today
But I can take that step in Your direction
I will take that step
On the way from me to You

Can’t You see me turning, turning around
On the way from me to You

(I can meet You… can meet You)
I can’t meet you halfway today
You knew I can’t meet You halfway, no way
I can’t meet You halfway today
But I can take that step in Your direction
I can take that step
On the way from me to You

You met me, too…
