Upton Lyrics

So I've been listening to Jason Upton a lot lately (I'm sure those of you who know me well are shocked) and there are just some incredibly annointed lyrics on his cds. Here's a few.

"If the whole wide world is staring straight at you. They can't see Me... I want them to know Me I want to show them my glory, but they can't see Me." - Dying Star (from Dying Star)

"We better trash our idols if we want to be
In the army of the Lord
And the greatest idol is you and me,
We better get on the threshing floor" - also from Dying Star

"But it’s just plain idolatry, when God can’t have all of me
I want to live for the will of God
Oh Lord, I want to follow
With all of my mind, all my heart and all my soul
I want to follow you Oh Lord" - I Will Follow (from Dying Star)

"Jacob had a dream for all the ages
Jacob had a drive to build a nation
But the fighting is in vain
If your only aim is to build your own great name
Because My dream's not what you do
Jacob will you dream for me
The way that I have dreamed for you" - Jacob's Dream (from Jacob's Dream)

"You stand beside me just waiting while I try to go it alone
Smiling You say son come here won’t you let me just help you
But frustrated I try to make it cause I’ve just got something to prove
Not knowing it is my weakness that perfects your power" - Just Like You (from Faith)

"In Your presence, All fear is gone..." - In Your Presence (from Between Earth and Sky)

"You’ve been too long upon this mountain
Its time you journey to the sea
Sometimes to trust in your false comfort
Is easier than trusting me
Some men only believe in what their eyes can see
Some men only believe in what their minds conceive

But believing’s like conceiving
This child that we’re receiving
A gift beyond our reason
Its more of what we need, and less of what we know
It calls not to our mind, but cries out to our soul

That mountain’s burning in the sky
To the heart of heaven
Without the fire we’ll never fly
To the heart of heaven
Can you hear God’s holy cry
From the heart of heaven
Lay it all down
Lay it all down
Lay it all down
For the heart of heaven" -Burning in the Sky (from Dying Star)
