Talk to me 'cause I've been talking to myself
Help me get these thoughts out of my own head
I don't believe, most days I don't believe
Mercy is true, it's hard to live with the things I do

So God, bruise the heels we've dug in the ground
That we might move closer to love
And pull out the roots we've dug in so deep
Finish what You started, help us to believe

(Keep our eyes wide open)
Love is kind and love is daring
Everything we need to keep our eyes
(Keep our eyes wide open)
Love is kind and love is daring
Everything we need to keep our eyes

We can't go on, it seems this conversation's done
It's so hard to win these fights and love You at the same time
So take my hands till grace makes her way to bend
Till the things I've set to ruin only lead to my own end, oh

So God, bruise the heels we've dug in the ground
That we might move closer to love
Pull out the roots we've dug in so deep
Finish what You started, help us to believe

(Keep our eyes wide open)
Love is kind and love is daring
Everything we need to keep our eyes
(Keep our eyes wide open)
Love is kind and love is daring
Everything we need to keep our eyes

(Keep our eyes wide open)
Love is kind and love is daring
Everything we need to keep our eyes
(Keep our eyes wide open)

Draw us in, send us out
Draw us in, send us out
Draw us in, pour us out
Help us to believe

(Keep our eyes wide open)
Love is kind and love is daring
Everything we need to keep our eyes
(Keep our eyes wide open)
Love is kind and love is daring
Everything we need to keep

(Keep our eyes wide open)
Love is kind and love is daring
Everything we need to keep our eyes
(Keep our eyes wide open)

Help us to believe
