lyrics

little kids playing out in the open field
Bright spring day brings life from common ills
of such is the kingdom, of such is the Christ
of such is the way to abundant life
life isn’t simple, life is complex
life isn’t captured in a single mic check
but it’s seen in the blooms that grow on the trees
and it’s seen in the blossoms that fall with the leaves
the tree is left empty, barren and still
tree becomes wood that is used to kill,
third day comes and he opens our eyes
what was once dead becomes resurrected life

everybody put your hands together
put your hands together put your hands together
look up from the ground to the sky
Jesus Christ spread his arms and died

some of this a bit more of that
water of life makes a man relax
weight of the world I find on my back
then I find a light yoke has been attached
hurt my true love and I hurt my mom
hurt my dad and friends but the love’s not gone
hurt a lot of people and truth be told
we have empty hands but God gave gold
now I’m tryin a hold onto flickers of light
the candle of the Presence signifies my flight
so I walk by faith and not by sight
I been set free from from Egypt and enslaved plight

everybody put your hands together
put your hands together put your hands together
look up from the ground to the sky
Jesus Christ spread his arms and died

once upon a time I had some broken hearts
and once upon a time god gave a new start
“speak the word only, and my soul shall be healed”
Christ spoke the word and promise fulfilled
there’s a lot of things that I’d like to see
a unified church where Christ reigns supreme
I’d like to see the roadside where my father died
I’d like to understand the anguish when my mother cried
I’d like to know the joy of a baby on my lap
I’d like to make some money from this kingdom of rap
I’d like to put a ring on a finger that’ll stay
and I’d like to know Christ at the last day flower

come on, yeah
everybody put your hands

everybody put your hands together
put your hands together put your hands together
look up from the ground to the sky
Jesus Christ spread his arms and died
