06. Out Of My Hands

The Shelter
by Jars of Clay



 

I wasted a rescue
Abandoned the mission
I failed by my own hands
And watched it all go wrong

You said you could save me
That I couldnít save myself
You said that you loved me
No matter what Iíve done

When the light is gone and life is just a dare we take
Still the fight goes on to give my heart away

And itís out of my hands, it was from the start
In light of what youíve done for me
In light of what youíve done for me
You lifted my head, set me apart
In light of what youíve done for me
This is what youíve done for me
Itís out of my hands
Itís out of my hands

We grow where the light is
Like trees in the highlands
Weíre bent by our own plans
To keep us in the dark

I act like an orphan
Forget that you found me
You came like a whisper
And saved me with a spark

When the light is gone and life is just a dare we take
Still the fight goes on and on to give my heart away

Thereís nothing in the world that I can offer
Nothing in the world that I can stand upon
Apart from you, apart from you
Thereís nothing in my life, nothing in my life
That you havenít given to me

Behind the Song:
CHARLIE LOWELL: The only thing we can do in response to what God has done for us, is to give our hearts away and love unconditionally, as a response to how we have first been loved.

DAN HASELTINE: We cannot save our own lives, nor can we change our own ways. God has given us to each other, failures and success combined.

STEVE MASON: It's humbling to know in our lowest moments that God's purposes are made complete in and through our weakness not our strength.

MATT ODMARK: Never has there been a more suffocating delusion to live under than the one that says our lives are ours to control.
