"When You Spoke My Name" as written by Joel Hanson, Bart Millard, Jim Bryson, Peter Kipley, Nathan Cochran, Barry Graul, Mike Scheuzcher and Robby Shaffer....
When I first spoke Your name
I used it like a blade
Cutting sharp a mask to hide the pain
When I first spoke Your name

When I next spoke Your name
I could no longer bear the weight
Of years hiding behind the ache
When I next spoke Your name

But when You spoke my name
Oh I swear the angels sang
Peace came and stole my shame
When You spoke my name

Now when I speak Your name
I sing it like a sweet refrain
I have found a peace I can't explain
When I speak Your name

'Cause when You spoke my name
Oh I swear the angels sang
Peace came and stole my shame
When You spoke my name

I can hardly speak
Knowing You know me
Thank God I'm free
Now my world has completely come undone

For I can hear the Son
Calling out to me
'Cause when You spoke my name
Oh I swear the angels sang

Peace came and stole my shame
When You spoke my name
Oh I swear the angels sang
Peace came and stole my shame
When You spoke my name
