"NORTHERN LIGHTS"

Verse 1
I know that we all need
Somebody who loves us for who we are,
But in this world, that's not so easy.
We're scared and insecure,
Trying to hide our faults,
Afraid to take the blame.
We just seem to fall way short,
Isn't it an awful shame?

Verse 2
Now they say true love is blind
To faults it knows and sees.
I think this love's the kind
That we hunger for and need.
It's pretty hard to come by,
And we try to search it out,
But we'll never know such love
'Til we trust Jesus with our hearts.

Chorus
He knows our darkest past,
But still His love is here to stay.
We've got a love that's made to last,
He's our tomorrows & our yesterdays.
Like the Northern lights
That say, "Europa, don't you cry.
Just hold on through these winter nights."
He's gonna help us reach the sky.

Verse 3
He takes us as we are,
And loves us just the same,
Believe it if you can.
This is no pretentious game.
The road of life is hard sometimes
And we try to stumble through.
Some folks aren't the forgivin' kind,
But then we know Who to turn to.

[Repeat Chorus]

Interlude:

[Repeat Chorus]

Like the Northern lights
That say, "Europa, don't you cry.
Just hold on through these winter nights."
He's gonna help us reach the sky.
