Empires

Words and Music by Joel Houston, Dylan Thomas, Chirs Davenport & Ben Tennikoff

Verse 1
We are worlds, we are bodies
Empires of dirt and grace
Silhouettes and reflections
Caught in His holy flame

Pre-Chorus
Beneath our skin a new creation
The night is done, our chains are broken
The time has come, the wait is over
The King is here and His name is Jesus

Chorus
This is love
Bending skies to heal the broken
This is love
Bleeding life into the grave
Hear the sound
As our hearts cry out forever
Singing hallelujah, breathing in a brand new world

Verse 2
We are shadows and portraits
Empires of light and clay
Images of our Maker
Sinners called out as saints

Bridge
No eye has seen, no ear has heard
No mind has conceived what heaven holds
But here and now, let earth be found
With all our crowns upon your Name
