Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

Midnight

He is staring at the bills and rubbing

Red eyes

Ain't adding up to nothing

But some hard times

He's feeling like a failure at life

 

Head down

Part of him is tempted just to

Skip town

But deep inside he knows enough to

Cry out

God I'm tired of fighting this fight

 

I'm running low on faith

But I won't run away

 

Tonight I'm gonna fix my eyes

On the only Hope who satisfies my heart

You are the One I'm running to

Everything that's good and right and true

Jesus, I'm coming after who

You are, You are

The One I'm running to

 

Late shift

She's working hard providing

For her three kids

She hasn't seen her husband cause

Their stretched thin

Nobody told her it would be this hard

There's no end in sight, but she says

No compromise

 

Tonight I'm gonna fix my eyes

On the only Hope who satisfies, my heart

You are the One I'm running to

Everything that's good and right and true

Jesus, I'm coming after who

You are, You are

The One I'm running to

 

So much I don't understand

In the middle of this circumstance

But I know my life is in Your hands

 

Tonight I'm gonna fix my eyes

On the only Hope that satisfies, my heart

You are, You are

 

Everything that's good and right and true

Jesus, I'm coming after who

You are, you are

The One I'm running to
