lyrics

Closer:
Written by Jeremiah Bligen

Verse 1:
Now every now and then I forget that it’s hopeless,
without you, and depend on my strength and emotions,
lose sight of the fact that I’m blind, And lie dormant,
its like cast amnesia, I forget that I'm broken,
father forgive me,
I know that without you I'll stay
packed with ambitions for the green,
a slave to the bay,
Lord be my eyes, provide sight
Let me walk in your ways,
and obey your John through matthew,
I'm your clay

Bridge:
Destruction abounds,
to clothe me with fear
temptations to doubt,
depend on my gears.
I come to you now,
my Cross to bear,
let your Cross empower,
Grace and Mercy ensnare.

Hook:
I need to be..
Closer, to you
I need to be..
Closer, to you
I need to be..
Closer, to you
I need to be..
Closer, to you
I need to be..Closer,
closer to your heart

Verse 2:
Closer,
Not in proxy, for you lie within,
but as in focus, magnifying your truth, my lens,
filled with your Glory, as I gaze upon the hills to call,
not worthy, yet worthy through the kin of james, you sawed,
through my hardened heart, my bearded sight removed, (Kin of James = Jesus, whose brother was named James, also, Kin of James=John, the villain on the movie Saw, also James/Harden/Beard)
Closer, let me remember the wonders in which your word produced,
you flipped and parted seas, You are the sovereign King,
forgave the foolish fallen, he who pardoned fleas,
Make me mindful of my broken mind,
how you mended and primed,
my arteries so that my body could be filled with life!
Oh God
You are my source, my Lord, my strength, my everlasting,
I need to be fixed on you,
even when feelings rapture,
and when the passions present, Lord present it as captured,
directed at you in praise,
bleeding into my actions,
Cut out uneeded scenes,
conform me to your image,
I need you to be closer,
My relief pitcher.

Hook:
I need to be..
Closer, to you
I need to be..
Closer, to you
I need to be..
Closer, to you
I need to be..
Closer, to you
I need to be..Closer,
closer to your heart

Break:
(x2)
Refresh Me,
Renew Me,
Holy Spirit,
Consume Me. (as in “absorb all of the attention and energy of; use up)

(x2)
As I draw close, to you Lord,
You draw closer, to me,
And the closer I am,
I’ll see you’re all that I need.

(Rap along with previous stanza)
My Lord and my Master,
My King, You’re my Ruler My Lord,
My Source and my Strength
I will Cling to your truth in this storm.
My Source and my Strength
I will Cling to your truth in this storm.
My Source and my Strength
I will Cling to your truth in this storm.
