​Thousand Steps

This song is by NewSong and appears on the album Give Yourself Away (2009).

With one eye open I saw her slowly start to stand
Her trembling hands wiped her tears away
She looked so tired and broken, she never lifts her head
She softly says I can't make it through another day

I'm as far away from God as I can be
Is there any way that He still loves me?
Can He still love me?

If there were a thousand steps between you and God
And you could see no way across the great divide
Just take one step toward His loving arms
And He'll take nine hundred and ninety-nine

He slips into the back door and he straightens up his tie
His bloodshot eyes tell of the night before
He comes here every Sunday but his life is never changed
He's played the game but he knows there's something more

And I'm so close but still so far away
And I can't live like this another day
Not another day

If there were a thousand steps between you and God
And you could see no way across the great divide
Just take one step toward His loving arms
And He'll take nine hundred and ninety-nine
Yeah, He'll take nine hundred and ninety-nine

Maybe you think that there's a place you can go and He won't be there
And He won't even care
Didn't you know that there's no depth or height to keep us from
His amazing love?

And if there were a thousand steps between you and God
And you could see no way 'cross the great divide
Then just take one step toward His loving arms
And He'll take nine hundred and ninety-nine
Yeah, He'll take nine hundred and ninety-nine

Nine hundred and ninety-nine
Take one step, take one step
He'll cross the great divide
Nine hundred and ninety-nine
Nine hundred and ninety-nine
Nine hundred and ninety-nine
