songs of hope and grace

 

Track 2

Who can we turn to?


Listen or buy this track here.

 

We get glimpses of truth...

Comfort and challenge can go hand in hand. Once, Jesus asked his disciples if they would leave him because his teaching was hard. You can almost feel the anguish in Simon Peter’s reply: “Where else can we go? You have the words of eternal life”.

We come to your table, strangest of food,
to eat of your flesh, drink of your blood,

to lay at your feet our hopes and our fears,

the lightness of youth, the burdens of years.

 

Who can we turn to? Where can we go?

You have the words of life for our souls.

 

I go down on my knees, know just who I am—

the glory of God, the puzzle of man;

making war with my questions, peace with my doubt

and you are my hope when patience runs out.

 

Who can we turn to? Where can we go?

You have the words of life for our souls.

 

All that you did, all that you said—

voices of heaven go round in my head.

 

If you take this world and make it again

then give everything to a new kind of men,

who’d be faithful and honest, patient and wise,

wouldn’t take someone’s love, exchange it for lies.

 

Who can we turn to? Where can we go?

You have the words of life for our souls.
