Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

You lift me up with your love

You lift me up with your love

You lift me up with your love

You lift me up

 

Waiting for the sunrise

Waiting for the day

Waiting for a sign

That I’m where you want me to be

 

You know my heart is heavy

And the hurt is deep

But when I feel like giving up

You’re reminding me

That we all fall down sometimes

But when I hit the ground

 

(CHORUS)

You lift me up when I am weak

Your arms wrap around me

Your love catches me so I’m letting go

You lift me up when I can’t see

Your heart is all that I need

Your love carries me so I’m letting go

 

You lift me up with your love

You lift me up with your love

You lift me up with your love

You lift me up

 

I know I’m not perfect

I know I make mistakes

I know that I have let you down

But you love me the same

 

And when I’m surrounded

When I lose my way

When I’m crying out and falling down

You are here to

REPEAT CHORUS

I can see the dawn is breaking

I am feeling overtaken with your love

With your love

I don’t know what I can offer

In this moment I surrender to your love

To your love

 

You lift me up when I am weak

Your arms wrap around me

Your love catches me so I’m letting go

 

REPEAT CHORUS

 

I can see the dawn is breaking

I am feeling overtaken with your love

 

You lift me up with your love

You lift me up with your love

You lift me up with your love

You lift me up

TID-bits

  •    Some mornings we just don’t want to get out of bed
  •   Not because the bed is comfortable
  •   But because our world is uncomfortable.
  •   If that’s your case, then this is the song you need to hear.

------------------------------------

  •   They say it’s not the fall that hurts you.
  •   It’s when you hit the bottom.
  •   This song reminds you that if your world is falling all around you
  •   God is there to catch you before you reach bottom.
  •   And even if you have hit bottom.
  •   He can make broken people new again.

------------------------------------

  •   This (That) song’s video shows a man who’s lost his job, a girl who thinks she’s ugly, and a woman who’s lost her husband.
  •   Each one has a life that’s become nothing but broken pieces.
  •   Pieces that God puts back together with His words of truth.
  •   ...and I just want you to know, that we’re here to keep bringing you those words.
  •   (ALTERNATE ENDING IF APPROPRIATE)   ...and I just want you to know, that we are here to pray with you if you need encouragement.

    Psalm 3:3-5

    ------------------------------------

    Psalm 143:8

    Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.

    Psalm 51:12  

    Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

    ------------------------------------

    Psalm 71:20

    Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up.

    ------------------------------------

    Lamentations 5:21  

    Restore us to yourself, O Lord, that we may return; renew our days as of old.

    ------------------------------------

    1 Peter 5:10-11

    Your Own Experiences

    What has broken you lately?   How did God put it back together?   It might have been a major loss or it might have been something minor, perhaps just a misunderstanding between friends that exposed a flaw in your character.   Talk about how it made you feel weak and how God gave you strength again.

    ------------------------------------

    Repeat the lines in the middle of the song:   “I know I’m not perfect, I know I make mistakes, I know that I have let you down, but you love me the same”   What did you do today that showed you weren’t perfect?   Something you had to whisper a short prayer to God about.

    -----------------------------------

    The song talks about His love catching or carrying you so that you can let go.   Letting go is often an act of forgiveness.   Share with the listener something that you have had to forgive, something you had to let go of, and how after time, you felt a restoring of love.
