Revelation Lyrics

V1

Instead you hollow out my shelter,

Carve for me a stronghold

Build me up a tower, it’s not quite time to be bold

Gather more reserves, call in the reinforcement

Watch, wait, listen for the hour

CH1

Hopin’ for a revelation

Waitin’ on the conflagration

Hopin’ for a revelation

Waitin’ on, waitin’ on

V2

Instead you hollow out my shelter,

Carve for me a stronghold

Build me up a tower, it’s not quite time

not quite time, not quite time, not quite time…

CH2

Stronger, stronger

If you hold me back, you’d better make me stronger

Stronger, stronger

If you hold me back come on and make me stronger

Stronger, stronger

If you hold me back, you’d better make me stronger

Oh— 

BR

Feels like I’m on this glorious threshold

Who knows how long I’ll have to stand

Tell me how long to hold my breath

Tell me what more could this demand?

When I finally, finally step out

Finally reach these trembling hands,

I wonder if I’ll even remember longing for this chance

CH2

CH1


These Seeds Lyrics

Please bless these seeds that I planted

Please bless these…

V1

I shoveled hard, throwing out my back with blisters on my hands

I’ve got wagon full of seeds, can’t find a soul who understands

hard, throwing out my back with blisters on my hands

I’ve got wagon full of seeds, can’t find a soul who understands

This work is heavy heavy thinking what if we’re headed for drought

No matter how I work or how I pray, just creepin’ in with doubt

CH

Please bless these seeds that I planted

Please bless these seeds that you gave me

Please bless these seeds that I planted

Please bless these

V2

I’ve got a crew I know will come around, don’t ask me why they do

The work is hard, hard heavy and the laborers are few

I’ve got a crew I know will come around, don’t ask me why they do

The work is hard, hot, heavy and the laborers are few

They’ve got me thinking I should take a break and move it all inside

No matter how I work or how I pray there’s nowhere left to hide

CH

Please bless these seeds that I planted

Oh bless these seeds that you gave me

Please bless these seeds that I planted

Please bless these

Bless these seeds, oh bless these

Seeds—

Seeds— Oh

BR

Can only do what I can do, can only do what I can do

Can only just plant ‘em and water

Stand in the field, a blackened sky my body’s weak the ground is dry

The stars look down as if to sigh

Can only do what I can do, can only do what I can do

Can only do what I can do just plant ‘em and water

The sun, the wind, the bitter rain, the winter cold I can’t contain

In your hands lie the seasons

CH

Please bless these seeds that I planted

Oh bless these seeds that you gave me

Oh care for this land you put in my hands

Bless these seeds – you know what they need

Bless these seeds – I want to believe

Woh…

TAG

Oh let me see them grow, let me see them grow

Let me see, see, I wanna see them grow

Oh let me see them grow

Before I go
