Better Angels Of Our Nature Lyrics

He fell to his knees and he cried out for mercy
Heart-felt confessionals to an angry mob
But vengeance was theirs as they bellowed for justice
"Death to the man who has sinned against God"

I joined in the chant feeling so high and mighty
Pointing the finger from up on my throne
'Til I looked in his tears and I caught my reflection
And I knew that I could not cast the first stone

Let the gavel fall slowly tho' truth's been revealed
Sequester the jury for a moment to feel
And in the courts of compassion I hope we can appeal
To the better angels of our nature, to the better angels of our nature

I walked along on my soft streets of plenty
She walked the alleys of anguish and need
While clutching my greed I was struck by a vision
But for the grace of God, that could be me

And we gather in chambers of lofty ideals
Still debating the giving when handed the bill
But in the congress of kindness I hope that we can yield
To the better angels of our nature, to the better angels of our nature

Angels of mercy, angels of light
Angels of darkness, angels of might
Angels with voices that whisper so clear
Who do I lean to, who do I hear?

We are building our world with a fevered emotion
While trying to keep it from coming apart
But as we reach for the dream can we still reach within us
We won't have the hope if we don't have the heart

'Cause we've tossed in the gale of a moral decline
As we drink from the grail of society's wine
But at humanities table I hope we choose to dine
With the better angels of our nature,
With the better angels of our nature

Hunger And Thirst Lyrics

You are my Shepherd, I'm Your little lamb
You lead me to the still water here in the pastureland
Sometimes I willfully wander,
that's when I stumble and fall
CHORUS:
I hunger and thirst for mercy,
I hunger and thirst for Your name
If I hunger and thirst for anything but You
I hunger and thirst in vain
You are my Father, I'm Your little child
You make a place at Your table
and ask me to stay awhile
I want to stay in Your presence,
I want to feast in Your hall
CHORUS
Heavenly Father, watch over me
Take me where healing waters run deep
CHORUS
...I hunger and thirst in vain
I hunger and thirst for Your name
If I hunger and thirst for anything but You
I hunger and thirst in vain

Let Me Go Lyrics

Sometimes the hardest people to say I love you to
Are the ones you love the most, I don't know why this is so
Maybe it's the years, the pride, the tears, the fear
The pain, I don't know, I don't know

When I was nurtured in your nest, you held my hand
For that I owe you so much, and those memories are mine
And I never want to lose them, but now these tender wings are dry
But I'll never learn to fly if you don't let me use them

Chorus:
Let me go, let me live or die a fool's death
Let me laugh, let me cry, let me learn the hard way
Let me grow, let me go

I am standing at the crossroads, looking on my life
So many choices to make but I have to choose
So hold me in your dreams, hold me in your thoughts
Hold me in your prayers and hold me in your heart and

CHORUS
...Let me grow, let me go

Sometimes the hardest people to say I love you to
Are the ones you love the most, I don't know why this is so
Maybe it's the years, the pride, the tears, the fear
The pain, I don't know, I don't know

When I was nurtured in your nest, you held my hand
For that I owe you so much, and those memories are mine
And I never want to lose them, but now these tender wings are dry
But I'll never learn to fly if you don't let me use them

Chorus:
Let me go, let me live or die a fool's death
Let me laugh, let me cry, let me learn the hard way
Let me grow, let me go

I am standing at the crossroads, looking on my life
So many choices to make but I have to choose
So hold me in your dreams, hold me in your thoughts
Hold me in your prayers and hold me in your heart and

CHORUS
...Let me grow, let me go

Started As A Whisper Lyrics

She slipped into church
She sat on the back row
'Cause she thought she'd find a little comfort there

A mother-to-be
But she was just a child herself
And alone it was an awful lot to bear

And all she wanted was
A friendly hand to help her thru'

Looking around
She felt an uneasiness
From the eyes of condemnation staring back

Cold hellos
Judgemental overtones
As the hope within her heart began to crack

Faces draped in doubt
Ushering her out

CHORUS
It started as a whisper
Spread into rumor - turned into lies
A blemish in the picture
Upsetting the scene in their eyes
It started as a whisper
Subtle remarks of disapproval
Poor little sister
It started as a whisper
But she got the message loud and clear

She picked up her coat
She fumbled with her dignity
Then she grabbed her pride and headed for the door

Conclusions were made
Their notions were preconceived
For a reputation she could not restore

Stealthy is the tongue
Oh, the damage done

(Chorus)

The chance we have today just
May be gone tomorrow
And when it comes down to the soul
Time may not be borrowed

(Chorus)

When Are You Coming Back Lyrics

There's a single mother working
Trying hard to make ends meet
She's got two boys and another on the way
And it's a cold and crowded winter
In a West Virginia shack
And she cries
Lord, Lord, when are you coming back

Old man down by the river
With a bottle in his hand
It's as empty as the pockets in his clothes
And he's drifting off to somewhere
Walking down the railroad track
Singin' Lord, Lord, when are you coming back

CHORUS
Is it gonna be Monday
Is it gonna be Tuesday, Lord
Is it gonna be mornin', nighttime or noon
I know it's gonna be one day
Sooner or later, yea
But the way it's been lately
I hope it's gonna be soon

It's getting loose around the edges
But I know you're gonna take up the slack
Lord, Lord, when are you coming back

(Chorus)

I've been reading the local paper
I've been watching the nightly news
Yea, this ole world's just rippin' at the seams
And with a past, dark and brooding
And a future looking black
It's got me thinkin'
Lord, Lord when are you coming back
Lord, Lord when are you coming back
Lord, Lord when are you coming back

(Chorus)
