1974 Lyrics

by Amy Grant

We were young
And none of us know quite what to say
But the feeling moved
Among us in silence anyway
Slowly we had made

Quite a change
Somewhere we had crossed a big line
Down upon our knees
We had tasted holy wine
And no one could sway us
In a life time

Purer than the sky
Behind the rain
Falling down all around us
Calling out from a boundless love

Love had lit a fire
We were the flame
Burning into the darkness
Shining out from inside us

Not a word
And no one had to say
We were changed
Nothing else we lived through
Would ever be same the same
Knowing the truth
That we had gained

Purer than the sky
Behind the rain
Falling down all around us
Calling out from a boundless love

Love had lit a fire
We were the flame
Burning into the darkness
Shining out from inside us

Stay with me
Make it ever new
So time will not undo
As the years go by
How I need to see
That's still me

Falling down all around us
Calling out from a boundless love

Yeah

Burning into the darkness
Shining out from inside us

Purer than the sky
Behind the rain
Falling down all around us
Calling out from a boundless love

Love has lit a fire
I am the flame
Burning into the darkness
Shining out from inside us

Purer than the sky
Behind the rain
Falling down all around us
Calling out from a boundless love
(Ohh)

Love has lit a fire
I am the flame
Burning into the darkness
Shining out from inside us

Purer than the sky
Behind the rain
Falling down all around us
Calling out from a boundless love
