If I Called Upon Your Name
Lyrics
If you looked into my eyes
And all you saw was rain
Pouring down the windows to my soul
If I opened up my broken life
And all you saw was pain
Would you pick the pieces up and make me whole?

Would you hold me in your arms
Until only love remains
And would you help me find the strength to start again...
If I called upon your name

Then lay your hands upon me now
Shine your love upon my face
Cast my demons out
Save me with your grace
Shower me with light
And wash away my shame
Will I find redemption after all
If I call upon your name

{BRIDGE}

It took forty years of dying to get it through my head
God so loved the world he gave his only Son
When I think of how you died for me two thousand years ago
It makes me wonder what I would have done...what would I have done?

If I saw you in the courtyard
With scars upon your face
Would I have tried to save you from the crowd
And would I have stayed beside you
If I stood in their place
Or Got down on my knees and cried out loud
And in that moment on the cross
When your last breath finally came
Would I have known you were the Son of God
And called upon your name

Lord lay your hands upon me now
Shine your love upon my face
Cast my demons out
Save me with your grace
Shower me with light
And wash away my shame
Will I find redemption after all
If I call upon your name
Shower me with light
Until I have no blame...

Thank God I found redemption after all
When I called upon your name
