this is life 14.0

“You could plant me like a tree beside a river
You could tangle me in soil and let my roots run wild
and i would blossom like a flower in the desert
but for now just let me cry

You could raise me like a banner in the battle
put victory like fire behind my shining eyes
and i would drift like falling snow over the embers
but for now just let me lie

bind up these broken bones
Mercy, bend and bring me back to life
but not before You show me how to die

set me like a star before the morning
like a sun that steals the darkness from a world asleep
and i’ll illuminate the path You’ve laid before me
but for now just let me be

bind up these broken bones
Mercy, bend and bring me back to life
but not before You show me how to die
no, not before You show me how to die

so let me go like a leaf upon the water
let me brave the wild currents flowing to the sea
and i will disappear into a deeper beauty
but for now just stay with me
God, for now just stay with me.”
