Full Lyrics:

Cannot Keep You
they could not keep you in a tent
they could not keep you in a temple
or any of their idols, to see and understand

we cannot keep you in a church
we cannot keep you in a Bible
or it’s just another idol to box you in

they could not keep you in their box
we cannot keep you in ours either
you are so much greater

who is like the Lord
the maker of the Heavens
who dwells with the poor
and he lifts them from the ashes
and he makes them sit with princes
who is like the Lord

We’ve tried to keep you in our tents
We’ve tried to keep you in our temples
We’ve worshiped all our idols, we want all that to end
We will find you in the streets
We will find you in the prisons
and even in our Bibles and churches

who is like the lord
the maker of the heavens
lover of my soul
who takes me from the ashes
who heals me of my blindness
who is like the Lord

      Thanks Man!! Your heart just jumped out of the page when I saw it on creative commons – had to use it for this song! 🙂

    Just wanted to ask where I can listen to this song on the net. I can’t find it on Youtube and my country doesn’t support iTunes. 😦 Such a powerful song and your visual response to it is amazing.
