lyrics

You dug your heels into the earth
and in your footprints flowers sprouted
You leaned across the mountain peaks
roots wrapped around your calloused feet

You breathe, you sigh, you lift your eyes
You clear your throat and sing
The chorus starts, how great thou art
The congregation sways

The plastered walls have spider-webbed
and you find loose paint chips in your tread
You lean across to cover the cracks
The ladder shakes, you lose your balance

You breathe, you sigh, you close your eyes
You hear the angel sing
The chorus starts, how great thou art
The ground beneath you sways

How great thou art
How great thou art
How great thou art
until it falls apart

Maybe god forgot his seed
maybe he just got too busy
Jesus, if you can still hear me
Prepare yourself, your son is coming

You breathe, you sigh, you lift your eyes
You clear your throat and sing
The chorus starts, how great thou art
The congregation sways

How great thou art
How great thou art
How great thou art
until you break my heart
until you break apart
