This song was written and recorded by Geoff Moore and Steven Curtis Chapman… included on the compilation album of the same name.
Geoff Moore (born February 22, 1961) is a contemporary Christian music artist and songwriter. He began recording as a solo artist in 1984. In 1987, he formed Geoff Moore and The Distance, his touring band, which released 8 albums, generating a string of #1 radio hits throughout their 10+ year tenure.
Steven Curtis Chapman (born November 21, 1962) is an American Christian music singer, songwriter, record producer, actor, author, and social activist for adoption. He is still actively recording and touring today.
Though, I think, both of these artists have included this song on albums of their own, I first heard this song as part of a compilation CD. It’s a great song of praise.
This song is a prayer of praise.
Bible Reference… Psalm 34:1-4; 103:1-5; 141:2; Hebrews 13:15
How do you explain; how do you describe
a love that goes from the east to west and runs as deep as it is wide?
You know all our hopes, Lord; You know all our fears.
And words cannot express the love we feel, but we long for You to hear.
So, listen to our hearts; hear our spirits sing
a song of praise that flows from those You have redeemed.
We will use the words we know to tell You what an awesome God You are.
But, words are not enough to tell You of our love. So, listen to our hearts.
If words could fall like rain from these lips of mine,
and if I had a thousand years… I would still run out of time.
So, if You’ll listen to my heart, every beat will say,
“Thank You for the life. Thank You for the truth. Thank You for the way.” (CHORUS)
