VERSE 1:
Tear down the walls see the world
Is there something we have missed
Turn from ourselves
Look beyond
There is so much more than this

PRE CHORUS:
And I don't need to see it to believe it
I don't need to see it to believe it
Cause I can't shake this
Fire deep inside my heart

VERSE 2:
Look to the skies hope arise
See His majesty revealed
More than this life there is love
There is hope and this is real

PRE CHORUS 2:
Cause I don't need to see it to believe it
I don't need to see it to believe it
Cause I can't shake this fire burning
Deep inside my heart

CHORUS:
This life is Yours and hope is rising
As Your glory floods our hearts
Let love tear down these walls
That all creation would
Come back to You
It's all for You

CHORUS 2:
Your Name is glorious
Glorious
Your love is changing us
Calling us
To worship in spirit and in truth
As all creation returns to You

BRIDGE:
Oh for all the sons and daughters
Who are walking in the darkness
You are calling us to lead them back to You
We will see Your spirit rising
As the lost come out of hiding
Every heart will see this hope we have in You

    To me it speaking of the church to not just be
    Within the walls of the church but to tear down the walls & go
    Out to the dark places, reach the lost, & lead them back to christ
    The great commission...
    I love what this song does to my heart, it emotionally compels
    Me to put my faith into action cause he's counting on me
    & they need him

    This song describes what we have done. For myself i spent so many years building up walls in my heart toward everyone and not even knowing i was building walls up even toward jesus who loves me unconditionally. Like some(many i'm sure) people, i told myself at a young age that people were only going to know me up to a certain point b/c i was not going to let anyone hurt me. I wasn't even going to let myself be completely vulnerable and broken before the one who loves me the most, jesus. Being a guy, i allow my pride to convince me that i don't need help. The chorus describes what should happen. Jesus is faithful and sovereign.

    This song means so much to me, ministers to individuals and the rest of creation... After all is said and done god remains who he is, he changes not. All creation must return to him and acknowledge him as god. Yes he is god!! The power of god destroys any walls that intend to inhibit my destiny.

    God is calling his army of people on earth to help those you who are troubled and who are seeking to be closer to god. No matter what you go through if your sad, lost, afraid, confused, angery or whatever else. . God is always here for you. He loves you no matter what situations you face. Just call out to him and he will answer!
