HOW CAN WE SAY THERE IS NO GOD (Song Lyrics)


Chorus
How can we say there is no God
We do
I did
There is
Forgive us Lord
We do not know
The lies we hear and listen to

Step back my friend, I speak in love
Look closely with your covered eyes
Not at what you think you can see
You’ll find answers for all your whys

There’s so much beauty all around
And abundant joy to behold
Gather near and I will show you
May the truth begin to unfold

I have to start with the roses
They sometimes take my breath away
To think that in the strips of green
Sweet blossoms will soon have their day

Rolling meadows and endless seas
Mountains grand and valleys so low
Hidden wonders trapped in whiteness
Awaiting springtime warmth and glow

Chorus
How can we say there is no God
We do
I did
There is
Forgive us Lord
We do not know
The lies that we hear and listen to

Love’s eyes captured in purity
Colours flowing effortlessly
Touching every living creature
The flame and fire of autumn’s tree

Greyness hides the illusive sign
Of promise made so long ago
Captured hearts once cold and broken
Into nothingness seed will sow

Icy winds, relentless swelter
Can bring tears for each living need
Some ask how can such grief, sadness
Supply love and to each one feed

Reality, reality
Yes, there is pain, oh! so much pain
One way will break the hopelessness
May tears rust away darkness’ chain

Chorus
How can we say there is no God
We do
I did
There is
Forgive us Lord
We do not know
The lies that we hear and listen to

Now back to those fragrant roses
Please look at petals delicate
The softness that you can witness
Were brought forth by One who was cut

Cut down in the prime of His life
By all not believing God’s word
In that Jesus came to save us
That He is our Saviour, our Lord

We must believe totality
Of all that He’s spoken and done
Open those eyes of confusion
Eternal life for you has been won

Won at the cross, won at the cross
Know you are so precious and loved
Cry to Him to reveal Himself
You’ll be eternally beloved

Chorus
How can we say there is no God
We do
I did
There is
Forgive us Lord
We do not know
The lies that we hear and listen to

82 Roses

82 Roses

Strolling around my garden
How blessed was I to see
82 sweet roses
That the Lord had given me

82 roses for me
Unbelievably
Blossoms and sweet fragrance
Adorning brilliantly

Scarlet, apricot, white
Lemon, ginger, sweet pink
In varying degrees
Of openness to drink

For someone with no green thumb
I know ‘tis His sweet touch
Their beauty overwhelms me
I know He loves me very much
