Petra – More Than Words lyrics

Words & Music by Bob Hartman

I saw Your picture hanging on the wall
Just an artist rendering that was all
The way You looked down in Your agony
Jogged my memory
And helped me to see
If a picture's worth a thousand words
Then it won't help me at all
Only words are never gonna say
What I feel for You today


More than a thousand words won't say
More than my life will not repay
More than a thousand things I do
Won't make it up to You

I stopped a moment sitting all alone
Without a waiting call on the phone
Looked like a picture from a magazine
More serenity than I've ever seen
And if words cannot describe this day
Or the beauty of this scene
Tell me, how can I expect the words I say
To reflect the things I mean


More than a thousand words won't tell
How You forgave me when I fell
More than a thousand words won't do
To say I love You


Simple words will never quite express
My gratitude to You
Until I cross the barrier
Mortal words will have to do
Will have to do...
