Rich Mullins Album: Pictures in the Sky Track: Be With You
Be With You Lyrics
Rich Mullins and Justin Peters Philippians 1:9-11, Second Thessalonians 1:3 Revelation 6:12-14
Everybody each and all We're gonna die eventually It's no more or less our faults Than it is our destiny So now Lord I come to you Asking only for Your grace You know what I've put myself through All those empty dreams I chased
And when my body lies in the ruins Of the lies that nearly ruined me Will You pick up the pieces That were pure and true And breathe Your life into them And set them free?
And when You start this world over Again from scratch Will You make me anew Out of the stuff that lasts? Stuff that's purer than gold is And clearer than glass could ever be Can I be with You? Can I be with You?
And everybody all and each From the day that we are born We have to learn to walk beneath Those mercies by which we're drawn And now we wrestle in the dark With these angels that we can't see We will move on although with scars Oh Lord, move inside of me
And when my body lies in the ruins Of the lies that nearly runied me Will You pick up the pieces That were pure and true And breathe Your life into them And set them free?
And when You blast this cosmos To kingdom come When those jagged-edged mountains I love are gone When the sky is crossed with the tears Of a thousand falling suns As they crash into the sea Can I be with you? Can I be with you?
