I tried and tried
A thousand times I tried to get to You
But I could never move

I had to lie
I'd fall behind and blame it all on You
'Cause I still hate to lose

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

Towers fall and kingdoms crumble
Mountains bow and the earth will tremble
At the sound of Your name
At the sound of Your name
The strong man falls to Him who humbles
The plans he made were bound to stumble
And only You remain
Only You remain

I cried and cried
A thousands tears I cried because of You
I lost my one excuse
I had to die
Along with everything inside of me removed
But now I live with You
Oh, oh, oh

Towers fall and kingdoms crumble
Mountains bow and the earth will tremble
At the sound of Your name
At the sound of Your name
The strong man falls to Him who humbles
The plans he made were bound to stumble
And only You remain
Only You remain

So man can reach the sky
If he builds his own device
But still he's far away from You
He's underneath Your eyes
As he plans his own demise
What's new to him is old to You

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

His kingdom fell and his heart was troubled
I feel the same, I feel the same
The strong man falls to Him who humbles
He demands a man who won't stumble
And that's why He came
And that's why He came

Towers fall and kingdoms crumble
Mountains bow and the earth will tremble
At the sound of Your name
At the sound of Your name
The strong man falls to Him who humbles
The plans he made were bound to stumble
And only You remain
Only You remain

    General CommentThat Jesus is so powerfull that at the sound of his name mountains will bow, we will rise and go home to be with him, IN THE BLINK ON AN EYE.
