AMY GRANT lyrics - 1974

AMY GRANT
"1974"
(Amy Grant, Gary Chapman, Jerry McPherson)

We were young
None of us knew quite what to say
But the feeling moved
Among us in silence anyway
Slowly we had made
Quite a change
Somewhere we had crossed a big line
Down upon our knees
We had tasted holy wine
And no one could sway us
In a life time

[Chorus:]
Purer than the sky
Behind the rain
Falling down all around us
Calling out from a boundless love
Love had lit a fire
We were the flame
Burning into the darkness
Shining out from inside us

Not a word
No one had to say we were changed
Nothing else we lived through
Would ever be the same
Knowing the truth
We had gained

[Chorus]

Stay with me
Make it ever new
So time will not undo
As the years go by
How I need to see
That's still me

Falling down all around us
Calling out from a boundless love
Burning into the darkness
Shining out from inside us

[Chorus]
