Lift Your Eyes



Feels like your world's crashing down and solid ground is hard to be felt
It feels like the walls are closing in
And the night has fallen
And the sun is gone
Your heart is dry
You need some time to find God

Come on, come on, lift your eyes up. Lift your eyes up to the hills.

Even in the testing fire God supplies every need in your life
And He'll come like the morning star, and wipe away your hurts, fears
And the dark will fall, the light will shine
It's all alright with God here

Come on, come on, lift your eyes up. Lift your eyes up to the hills.

-Leeland


He's right here, because He came. To us. Emmanuel.

Just look up.

  4. I don't know the song but really appreciate the lyrics in my testing fire. I've been looking up, FPFG, and you're right: He's here.

    And He's good.
