Little Things with Great Love

Aus Audrey Assads neuem Album Evergreen:

 

In the garden of our Savior no flower grows unseen

His kindness rains like water on every humble seed

No simple act of mercy escapes His watchful eye

For there is One who loves me – His hand is over mine

 

In the kingdom of the heavens no suffering is unknown

Each tear that falls is holy, each breaking heart a throne

There is a song of beauty in every weeping eye

For there is One who loves me – His heart, it breaks with mine

 

O the deeds forgotten, O the works unseen

Every drink of water flowing graciously

Every tender mercy You’re making glorious

This You have asked of us:

Do little things with great love

Little things with great love

 

At the table of our Savior, no mouth will go unfed

And His children in the shadows stream in and raise their heads

O give us ears to hear them, and give us eyes that see

For there is One who loves them. I am His hands and feet

For there is One who loves them. I am His hands and feet

 

Und noch eins, weil’s gerade so schön ist:

 

Image of the Invisible

In our pain, we feel You near

God of Heaven in flesh and bone

By Your wounds we shall be healed

 

Wounded healer

We give our hearts to You

Wounded healer

We give our hearts to You

 

Arms stretched out not to part the seas

But to open up the grave

Blood poured out not for war, but peace

And to show us God“s own face

 

Wounded healer

We give our hearts to You

Wounded healer

We give our hearts to You

 

No fire, no fury

Just death into life

Over and over

Till all things are right

 

No fire, no fury

Just death into life

Over and over

Till all things are right

 

Wounded healer

We give our hearts to You

Wounded healer

We give our hearts to You

 

Oh, wounded healer

We give our hearts to You

Oh, wounded healer

We give our hearts to You

 

Und weil aller guten Dinge drei sind, noch dieses tolle Stück:

 

You have loved me well in a million ways

But my wounds are all I know

So I turn my head and I hide my face

Too afraid to come back home

 

But all of the doors swing open

When I see You, when I see You

You make my heart unbroken

When I see You, when I see You

And I come undone, I come undone

 

When my fear comes close

And it robs me blind

Your love provides for me

What a winding road

What a river wild

Being yours, becoming free

 

But all of the doors swing open

When I see You, when I see You

You make my heart unbroken

When I see You, when I see You

And I come undone, I come undone

 

My eyes more open the closer You come

My heart unfolds like a flower in the sun

My fear grows cold in the light of Your love

My heart unfolds, I’m coming undone

 

My eyes more open the closer You come

My heart unfolds like a flower in the sun

My fear grows cold in the light of Your love

My heart unfolds, I’m coming undone

 

But all of the doors swing open

When I see You, when I see You

You make my heart unbroken

When I see You, when I see You

And I come undone, I come undone
