Wide Open
Heaven's gate were closed and there seemed to be no hope
For fallen man
We were prisoners of our sin, with no way to enter in
But God had a plan
The father knew there had to be a perfect sacrifice
So Jesus came, a cross was raised
And when he laid down his life
Chorus:
Wide open, wide open, they nailed his arms wide open
After three days in a cold grave,
The power of sin was broken
Now with outstretched arms he welcomes in
Everyone who trusts in him,
His nail-scarred hands hold heaven's gates wide open
For so long my eyes were closed,
I couldn't see a way of hope
For someone like me
And in my despair I cried there's
Got to be more to this life
Lord help me please
And the father said, there had
To be a perfect sacrifice
That's why Jesus came, a cross was raised,
And he laid down his life
Chorus
Bridge:
For every weary heart that aches
For every dream this world will break
There's a promise in its place, God has made a way
Chorus
