The World Is Wide Open Lyrics

The World Is Wide Open by Jason Upton  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


The World Is Wide Open There is a power in poverty that breaks principalities
It brings the authorities down to their knees

There is a brewing frustration and an ageless temptation
To fight for control by manipulation

The God of the Kingdoms and God of Creation, God of the Nations
Sent this revelation through the homeless and penniless Jesus the Son
"The poor will inherit the Kingdom to come"

Where will we turn when our world falls apart
And all of the treasures we stored in our barns,
Can't buy the Kingdom of God?

And who will we praise when we've praised all our lives,
Men who build kingdoms and men who build fame, but Heaven does not know their names?

And what are we gonna fear,
When all that remains is a God on the throne with a child in his arms
And love in His eyes?

And the sound of His heart crying...

Take us way beyond religion
Way beyond the minds of man
Take us way beyond religion
Way beyond the minds of man
Take us way beyond politics and the ways of the world
Oh deeper, deeper, deeper, deeper, deeper, deeper,
We want to go deeper

Deeper into the ways of you Jesus
Teach us how to love, teach us how to love, teach us how to love,
Teach me, teach me how to love, teach me how to love
Teach us... teach us how to love
The world is wide open
The world is wide open
The world is wide open
It's wide open
It's wide open
It's wide open
It's wide open
Teach us how to love
Teach us how to love
Teach us your ways Jesus
We want to walk in your truth

Sons and daughters of the living God
Sons and daughters of the living God
Sons and daughters of the living God
All of heaven is waiting on us
It's waiting
It's waiting
It's waiting
It's waiting
Were waiting
I hear all of creation crying, "We're waiting"
"We're waiting"
"We're waiting"
"We're waiting"
"We're waiting"

Show us how to love

Stop Telling Us... That You're The Chosen People,
Start Living Like A Chosen People

Jason, I'm calling your name
Bryan, I'm calling your name
I'm calling your name
I'm calling your name
I'm Calling your name

Every son and daughter in the Church today...
I'm calling your name
Teach them
Teach them

That my ways are far beyond the ways of man
My ways are far beyond religion
My ways, my ways, are far beyond one people
My ways, my ways, are higher than your ways
There higher than your ways, higher than your ways
There higher than your ways

Teach them how to love
The world is wide open
Teach us how to love

Calling on you...
Waiting on you

Sons and daughters, sons and daughters, sons and daughters
Of the living god

It's time, it's time
We are,
Sons and daughters of the living God
Sons and daughters of the living God
