Across The Lands
Keith And Kristyn Getty
C F You're the Word of God the Father C G From before the world began. F C Ev'ry star and ev'ry planet Dm F Has been fashioned by Your hand. C F All creation holds together C G By the power of Your voice. F C Let the skies declare Your glory; Dm G Let the land and seas rejoice! CHORUS F C You're the Author of creation; G Am You're the Lord of ev'ry man; F G C And Your cry of love rings out across the lands. VERSE 2 (SAME AS VERSE 1) Yet You left the gaze of angels, Came to seek and save the lost, And exchanged the joy of heaven For the anguish of a cross. With a prayer You fed the hungry; With a word You calmed the sea; Yet how silently You suffered That the guilty may go free! VERSE 3(SAME AS VERSE 1) With a shout You rose victorious, Wresting vict'ry from the grave, And ascended into heaven, Leading captives in Your way. Now You stand before the Father, Interceding for Your own; From each tribe and tongue and nation, You are leading sinners home! CHORUS F C You're the Author of creation; F Am You're the Lord of ev'ry man; F G C And Your cry of love rings out across the lands.
