suddenly

You’ve run out of hope, you’ve run up against a wall
Just trying to cope, look for something to ease the fall
You don’t know what’s next, is it near or is it far?
It’s hard to know when you don’t hold the cards

The dreams in our hearts, we try to suppress, they never really go away
The trials we face are part of the race, producing an eternal weight of glory

Suddenly, He points and it’s your turn
All the pain that you’ve endured is now worth something more
Are you ready? Did you learn? Did you grow in suffering?
Did you choose to live your life for eternity? 

You live in a world that’s full of politics and images 
You try to break the status quo, pursue a dream they’ve yet to know
But everyday, feel the pressure, feel exposed

The dreams in our hearts, we try to suppress, they never really go away
The trials we face are part of the race, producing an eternal weight of glory

Suddenly, He points and it’s your turn
All the pain that you’ve endured is now worth something more
Are you ready? Did you learn? Did you grow in suffering?
Did you choose to live your life for eternity? 

The same storm can make you stronger or cause you to give up your dreams
Just remember that perseverance does not come suddenly
Keep on keeping on, building character, hope, like eagle’s wings
Will lift you higher, it will not disappoint in eternity

For love, love pours down
From above, love pours down to our hearts
Love, love pours down
From above, love pours down

Suddenly, He points and it’s your turn
All the pain that you’ve endured is now worth something more
We pray and we let go, we give to God and hope
The promises He gives depend on how we live
If we’re ready, if we’ve learned, if we’ve grown in suffering
If we chose to live our lives for eternity        

Will you choose to live your life for eternity?
