Gave up The Ghost

 

Lyrics


VERSE 1
He stepped down from heaven’s heights
Laid His majesty aside
Infinity wrapped into clay
He submitted to the womb
so He could take the tomb
The Word became flesh to show the way

PRE
Cause Jesus went lower
Jesus went lower still

VERSE 2
He walked upon the earth
like a farmer plows the dirt
He poured Himself like wine from the vines
The glory of the tree
was a fruit most pure and sweet  
He fell down to give us this life

PRE
So we could be closer
We could be closer still

CHORUS
Then He gave up the Ghost
To give us the Ghost
When God breathed out
Saints rose from the ground
With life in their bones

He gave up the Ghost
To give us the Ghost
The veil was torn
As the Church was born
Love was exposed

VERSE 3
What’s the use of seed if it only stays a seed
Are we meant to be buried or sown
How selfish we can be when we think we’re ours to keep
We are not made to stay our own

PRE
Cause Jesus went lower
Jesus went lower still
So we could be closer
We could be closer still 

BRIDGE
Lower still to take our burden
Lower still to bear our cross
Lower still to shatter curses
Lower still to reach our heart
Closer still to bind the broken
Closer still to heal our scars
Closer still to break us open
Closer still into His arms
