Closer Than You Know

Closer Than You Know

Words and Music by Joel Houston, Matt Crocker & Michael Guy Chislett

Verse 1
I tempered the storm
Though your faith was small
I prayed while you slept
And the night waged war
We stood by the fire
And we walked on sea
And we drank of the wine
That was made of Me

Pre-Chorus
Don’t turn your eyes from Me
For my love won’t be undone
Don’t hide your face from Me
For my light has surely come
Surely come, surely come, oh

Verse 2
I carried that cross and I felt your pain
I took up your crown and I wore your shame
And death was a fire and its teeth were grim
But I left it behind along with all your sin

Pre-Chorus 2
Don’t turn away from Me
For my love won’t be undone
Don’t hide your face from Me
For my light has surely come
Surely come, surely come

Chorus
Lift up your eyes and see
Heaven is closer than you know
Lift up your voice and sing
Know that My love won’t let you go
And I won’t forsake you
Lift up your eyes and see
Heaven is closer than you know
Know I’ll never leave you
So lift up your voice and sing
Know that my love won’t let you go
And my light has surely come
Surely come, surely come
And I’m closer than you know
And I’m closer than you know
