Steven Curtis Chapman – More To This Life lyrics
Today I watched in silence as people passed me by,
And I strained to see if there was something hidden in their eyes;
But they all looked at me as if to say
Life just goes on.

The old familiar story told in different ways,
Make the most of your own journey from the cradle to the grave;
Dream your dreams tomorrow because today
Life must go on.

But there's more to this life than living and dying,
More than just trying to make it through the day;
More to this life, more than these eyes alone can see,
And there's more than this life alone can be.

Tonight he lies in silence staring into space,
And looks for ways to make tomorrow better than today,
But in the morning light it looks the same;
Life just goes on.

He takes care of his family, he takes care of his work,
And every Sunday morning he takes his place at the church;
And somehow he still feels a need to search,
But life just goes on.


So where do we start to find every part
Of what makes this life complete;
If we turn our eyes to Jesus we'll find
Life's true beginning is there at the cross where He died.
He died to bring us. ..

More To This Life meanings

  • sullymcgully
    Released as the pilot single of the album of the same name in 1989, "More to this Life" quickly became a #1 hit and has been a Christian standard and one of Steven Curtis Chapman's most beloved songs for the past 25 years. Its message about the meaning of life is still important today. People pass us by every day, living the way culture tells them to, trying to be respectable and friendly, and wondering why they aren't feeling fulfilled. What they don't realize is that fulfillment doesn't come through obeying a set of rules or meeting a certain standard, no matter how good those rules and standards may be. True life isn't even found in showing all the outward signs of joyful Christian living. To truly live requires you to understand the magnitude of the sacrifice Christ made for you, and knowing that however you appear on society's scales, He loves you with a love unimaginable even on your worst days. Otherwise, He wouldn't have given His life for you. But He wants you to find fulfillment in fellowship with Him, because He knows that it's only when you give yourself up to Him and His will for your life that you find out what you've been missing and discover firsthand that there really is "more to this life".
