lyrics

I fell off the ship
Deep into downward current
Pull me upward
I was sinking: with water in my lungs

I fell off the ship
Deep into downward current
I can’t believe this:
Drowning and death is certain

But I still see your hand
Plunging down through the water
Your firm grasp on the back of my head

Pull me upward; Pull me up

I was sinking, with water in my lungs
But you reached through the deep blue
And pulled my choking face
Above the waves

And pulled my choking face
Above the waves

Your presence is ruinous
But your Your absence is my death
I am wrecked here
Under the weight of glory

All these lesser pleasures
Leeching all that’s better
I can’t see your face but I know it’s you.

My eyes strain to look to the ends of eternity

Pull me upward
I was sinking, with water in my lungs
But you reached through the deep blue
And pulled my choking face
Above the waves

The weight of brokenness is heavy
Systems of justice are backward
Generations of oppression suppressed in rage

The weight of your love is massive
Eternal words speak supreme
The oppression of these rulers is chaff in the wind of your breath

Your presence is ruinous
But your absence is my death
Your firm grasp on the back of my head
Pull me upward: Pull me up

I fell off the ship
Deep into downward current
I can’t believe this:
Drowning and death is certain

But I still see your hand
Plunging down through the water
Your firm grasp on the back of my head

Pull me upward; Pull me up
