Tobymac – City On Our Knees lyrics

If you gotta start somewhere
Why not here?
If you gotta start sometime
Why not now?

If we gotta start somewhere
I say here
If we gotta start sometime
I say now?

Through the fog
There is hope in the distance
From cathedrals
To third world missions
Love will fall to earth
Like a crashing wave

Chorus:
Tonight's the night
For the sinners and the saints
Two worlds collide
In a beautiful display
It's all up tonight
When we step across the line
We can sail across the sea
To a city with one king
A city on our knees

If you gotta start somewhere
Why not here?
If you gotta start sometime
Why not now?

If we gotta start somewhere
I say here
If we gotta start sometime
I say now?

Through the fog
There is hope in the distance
From cathedrals
To third world missions
Love will fall to earth
Like a crashing wave

Chorus:
Tonight's the night
For the sinners and the saints
Two worlds collide
In a beautiful display
It's all up tonight
When we step across the line
We can sail across the sea
To a city with one king
A city on our knees

Tonight could last forever
We are one chioce from together
Tonight could last forever
O tonight could last forever
We are one choice from together
Family, we're family
O tonight could last forever
We are one chioce from together
You and me yeah you and me

Chorus:
Tonight's the night
For the sinners and the saints
Two worlds collide
In a glorius display
'Cause it's all up tonight
When we step across the line
We can sail across the sea
To a city with one king
A city on our knees
A city on our knees
A city on our knees
A city on our knees

If we gotta start somewhere
Why not here?
If we gotta start sometime
Why not now?

    We can do all things with and through christ jesus. Without him we can do nothing! And it begins with bowing down, humbling ourselves before him. For it is by the power of the holy spirit that we do what we do, in him. And again, jesus himself is the one who baptizes us with the holy spirit, with 'power'. We start with him. In his presence. On our knees.
