lyrics

Twice As Deep

E
How small my hands
A E
How small my labor
E
How small my feet
A E
And the distance that I can walk

E
How small the stones
A E
That I can barely move
E
If only, oh, if only
A E
I had someone to labor with too

E A E
You, you divine bride who’s good work it is to open your doors wide
E A E
let me share in your tears and sweat for the lost and the unfortunate
E F#m E
Though we may not see eye to eye, together we’ll go twice as deep and twice as wide

C#m A E A C#m
But the church’s grand plan is a grand parking lot which is bought with our offerings
C#m A E A E
And she puts all the stones in her fences and walls and trusts in the philosophy
E A E A
That the best way to show the world our Father’s love is to show them how different
C#m
they are
C#m A E A
Oh, the salt of the earth is the salt in the wound for our Father surely didn’t build
C#m A E
those walls, no our Father truly didn’t build those walls

E – A – C#m – C#m – A - E
E A C#m
For our Father’s a searcher and finder of souls
C#m A E
Like an old prospector digging for gold
E A C#m
He’ll head to the hills and won’t go home
C#m A E
‘Til He’s found everybody, ‘til they’re safe with their own

E A C#m
Their own, oh, He’ll find every hole
C#m A E
Where they lay hiding afraid of the unknown
E A C#m
He’ll call out their names and uncover their caves
C#m A E
And wake up all the sleeping ones and dig up all their graves


E – C#m – A – E – C#m – A – C#m – A – E – EaddF# - E – EaddF# - E


E
How small my hands
A E
How small my labor
E
How small the stones
A E
That I can barely move
E
But I labor with the father
A E
So I labor not in vain
E
Come, come and join us
A E
For He’s calling out your name

Church Refugees Greeley, Colorado

"This is Why I Left You: Songs for the Dones" is the soundtrack to the book Church Refugees. Each artist drew inspiration for their lyrics from quotes in Church Refugees about people who have walked away from organized religion, but not from God. It is our hope that these songs serve as a source of comfort and inspiration to those who have left and those who are thinking of leaving the church. ... more
