Verse 1:
When the walls close in around me
Let Your glory light the darkness of my night
When the suffering's all that I see
May I walk with You by faith and not by sight

Verse 2:
On the throne of sweet surrender
I have nothing but to offer You my life
Greater love I have not found it
Oh by mercy You have eased this troubled mind
Open hearted I will search and I will find

Chorus:
Whoa
Sin is broken
The lost now chosen
The Father's heart
X2

Verse 3:
Humble king You go before me
By Your grace I stand for everything that's true
Through Your Son I am made worthy
There's no other who can love me like You do
And forever I keep running back to You

Chorus:
Whoa
Sin is broken
The lost now chosen
The Father's heart
X3

Sin is broken
The lost now chosen
The father's heart

Outro:
You reign
You reign in all the earth
Whoa
X6

    A fathers heart is something very few people have with their earthy father. But to me its just such a priviledge to know that i have greatest father in world that always is for me! God is just the greatest father! I'm just full of love for my abba daddy!

    The only place i ever feel secure. Where i lock all my trust. The only door that's always open, even at times i slam it hard. The heart that skips on the very thought of me. The heart that longs for me to run back and hug tight again. The heart that's willing to forgive me a million thousand times and more. The heart that takes pride in possessing me. The heart that waits looking down the road and runs to take me back when i show messed up again. My father's heart.

    I love you daddy!

    The father's heart, it is beyond anything else on the earth, this god that loves the heck out of us, he's mighty, he reigns over the earth! Broken, humbled we come in his arms accepting us as we are :)
