He gives and takes away
You were never meant to stay...
in our arms

Goodbyes they come too soon
Our dreams, they died with you...
that day

And while we trust, our hearts ache for you
And while we live, we live still without you

Hallelujah, this broken heart is His to mend
Hallelujah, He breathes new life in me again
Hallelujah, He is Peace, the Risen Lamb
Hallelujah, the sting of death is in His hands

He gives and takes away
He was never meant to stay...
in this world

Goodbyes they came too soon
Our hope, it died with You..
And Rose Again!

Her empty arms
His father's heart is torn in two
Jesus you came, to make the sad untrue
