Twila Paris – I Will Listen lyrics

Words and Music by Twila Paris
I look on the outside
You look on the heart
Where I see an ending
You can see another place to start
And every time I see Your hand reach down
I know a lonely child has just been found
But I never get used to what You do
I never get used to watching You
Take a life beyond redemption
Make it yours and make it new
I never outgrow the miracle
A heart that was empty flowing full
I never get used to what You do
I grew up surrounded by
The Family of Life
You'd think I would know by now
You'd think I would never be surprised
But every time it takes my breath away
And I think it is time You heard me say
Father of grace and love without end
God of forgiveness, Faithful Friend
Every time I see your hand reach down
Another lonely child has just been found
Every day Your mercy is brand new
And we would all be lost if not for You
