David Phelps Album: Revelation Track: Arms Open Wide
Arms Open Wide Lyrics
From another world Out of the Heavens, into the earth Came another love. A love that we've never seen or heard. You came and displayed Your love By giving Your all for us.
Chorus You are the High and Holy One. You left the glory of Your throne And You gave Your life away. You are the Lord of everything. The reason for the song I sing. You're worthy to be praised. You lived and died with arms open wide With arms open wide.
From another time Your will unfolded, just like You planned. Your spirit is alive And living in the hearts of man. How deep Your unfailing love That You would remain with us.
NOTES: By Rita Baloche
This was one of the first songs that I heard when we were considering songs for this album, and it just blew me away. Musically, it's a fun, catchy song that stays in your head, but what I really love about it is the theme. I had been toying with writing a song about the same subject, and when I heard this one, I knew I had to have it on the album. It reflects how Christ lived his life here on earth - " He lived and died with His arms open wide," holding nothing back.
