Petra – Life As We Know It lyrics

By Bob Hartman
Based on 1 John 5: 11

First He calls out
Into your darkness
He woos gently
And you have to choose
But the choice is easy
It's light and darkness
There's an invitation
You can not refuse

Revelation - when you see where you've been
Confirmation - you've been drawn again

This is life as we know it
Forgiven and free
Life as we know it
More abundantly
Born of the Son, we can finally see
This is life as we know it

One day doubting
You're walking blindly
Through shadow's darkness
You don't feel a thing
You keep on walking
Though you sometimes stumble
Till you find assurance
Only faith can bring

Never perfect, but perfectly forgiven
Finding courage to get up again


Bent, but not broken
Tempted, but not shaken
Kept in the shadow of His wing
Held by the power
Sealed with the promise
By the One who is over everything
