lyrics

The word, the word, the word
There has always been the word
But then the word took on flesh
Like a homeless baby in distress
Jesus walked into the fray
To prove a reconciling way
The word, the word, the living, saving word

My heart, my heart, my heart
Like the sea that once did part
To keep the devils at bay
From left to right it sways
Like a tired ocean wave
Yet all my heart now craves is
The word, the word, the living, saving word

From darkness, to darkness, to darkness, to light
The word because flesh to bring dead things to life

Yet it's a groaning, groaning world
Where even the trees are begging for
A new place to lay their roots
Where wars for oil will not destroy
We know a peace that lasts beyond a day
A hope that's deep enough to stay
The world, the world, the living, saving word

From darkness, to darkness, to darkness, to light
The word because flesh to bring dead things to life

We know a peace that last beyond a day
A hope that's deep enough to stay
The world, the world, the living, saving word
