play Secret Church

from Turning Point BUY Slabster

This great cold steel

that bars the way inside

was molten when the Blacksmith

was still living

This dead heavy door

that's oak by oak

and all the way a cross is unforgiving

This inscription tall

on that pristine wall

behind the steel so rusted

says, "love remains

to break the chains

of those who would dare to trust it."



Meet me here any night

There's a secret church

that's gathered

by these gates of steel

a gathering of refugees

enough to feel

that we're warm inside

with our candles in the wind

Though we're standing on the outside

of these walls alone

the secret church

feels taller than cathedral stone

The doors may be locked

but they're just doors

Come be welcomed

into so much more

Come be welcomed into so much more



Then the wind turned strong

when the gathering was done

and the chains upon the bars

began to falter down to the floor

From the center of the door

fell the lock that was

placed on the altar

The inscription tall

on the pristine wall

behind the steel so rusted

says "love remains

to break the chains

of those who would dare to trust it."



Meet me here any night

There's a secret church

that's gathered

by these gates of steel

a gathering of refugees

enough to feel

that we're warm inside

with our candles in the wind

As we're standing on the outside

of these walls alone

the secret church

feels taller than cathedral stone

The doors may be locked

but they're just doors

Come, be welcomed

into so much more

Come be welcome,

come be welcomed

into so much more
