Gungor – Cannot Keep You lyrics

They tried to keep You in a tent
They could not keep You in a temple,
Or any other idols, to see and understand

We cannot keep You in a church
We cannot keep You in a Bible,
Or it's just another idol to box You in

They could not keep You in their walls
We cannot keep You in ours either
For You are so much greater

Who is like the Lord?
The maker of the heavens
Who dwells with the poor
He lifts them from the ashes,
And seats them among princes
Who is like the Lord?

We've tried to keep You in our tents
We've tried to keep You in our temples
We've worshiped all our idols,
We want all that to end
So we will find You in the streets
And we will find You in the prisons
And even in our Bibles, and churches

Who is like the Lord?
The maker of the heavens
Who dwells with the poor
He lifts them from the ashes,
And seats them among princes
Who is like the Lord?

We cannot contain,
Cannot contain the glory of Your name (3x)

Who is like the Lord?
You took me from the ashes,
And You healed me from my blindness
Who is like the Lord?
