Maverick City Music & Kirk Franklin – Take Me Back Lyrics

When the storm’s out on the ocean
And the violent wind gets to blowing
Oh, take me back, back
All the way back
Oh, take me back to my first love
Sing it again, “When the storm’s out,” hey
When the storm’s out on the ocean
And the violent wind gets to blowing
Oh, You’re faithful to take me back, back
All the way back
Oh, take me back (Say, “Back”), back
(All the way) All the way back
(Oh) Oh, take me back, back
All the way back
Oh, take me back to my first love (My first love)

You are real to me
I have known it from the start (Oh)
And there’s no in-between (No in-between)
The heavens and my heart, yeah
And You are near to me
I’ve never been too far, hey
I can’t outrun Your grace, I can’t outrun Your grace
And in the in-between
You brought Heaven to my heart, yeah

Oh, when the storm’s out on the ocean
(And the violent wind gets to blowing) And the violent wind gets to blowing (Let the wind blow, let it blow, let it blow)
(‘Cause I know You’ll) Oh, take me back, back
All the way back
(Oh, take me) Oh, take me back (Take me back), back (Take me back)
All the way back (Hey!)
Oh, take me back (Yeah), back
All the way back
Oh, take me back to my first love

Where I first saw the light, take me back here
Where I first gained my sight, take me back
At the Cross, at the Cross
Where Jesus died, take me back
At the Cross, at the Cross
When I first saw the light, just take me back
To the Cross, to the Cross
Where my Jesus died, oh, take me back
To the Cross, to the Cross
When I first saw the light, would You take me back
To the Cross, to the Cross?
When I first received my sight (Hey!), take me back
To the Cross, to the Cross
When I first saw the light, would You take me back?
To the Cross, to the Cross
When I first saw the light, oh, take me back
To the Cross, to the Cross
Oh, come on, say, “Would You take me back?”
To the Cross, to the Cross
When I first saw the light, take me back
To the Cross, to the Cross
Where my Jesus died, take me back

At the Cross where my Savior (Yeah)
Oh, there to my heart was the blood applied
Singing, glory to His name
I’ll be forever singing glory to His name, precious name
Singing glory to His name
(There) There to my heart was the blood applied
I’m singing glory to His name (One more time)
I’ll forever be singing glory to His name, that precious name
I’m singing glory to His name
(There to my heart) There to my heart was the blood applied
I’ll be singing glory to His name

Thank You for the blood, Jesus (Thank You for the blood, Jesus)
He made the devil a liar when He gave us His blood (Yes, sir)
Oh, every past flaw, every past sin, every mistake
I just declare that through the blood of Jesus
You are free, You are clean
You are made righteous in His sight
You are royalty, chosen for such a time as this
Chosen for the world to hear what the Lord has done
Hey, He makes all things new
He makes all things new
He makes all things new
He makes all things new
The blood speaks a better word (The blood speaks a better word)
What is it saying over you? (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
The blood speaks a better word
Oh, I’m the living proof
That you can be one way and come out another
You can come from darkness into light
From wrong, stepping into right (Yeah)
What does the blood say about you? (What does the blood say about you?)
That you’re royal, a royal priesthood
Chosen for such a time as this
Before you were in your mother’s womb
Before you was in your mother’s womb
He had a plan and a purpose for you (What does the blood say about you?)
And that was to bring you into an expected end

This is not the end
This is not the end (Hey)
This is not the end (Hey)
This is not the end (He got a plan for you)
This is not the end (You’re just getting started)
This is not the end (Said, you’re just getting started)
This is not the end (Said, you’re just getting started)
This is not the end (You’re just getting started)
This is not the end (Eyes have not seen)
This is not the end (Ears have not heard)
This is not the end ([?] entered into the mind’s of men)
This is not the end (Everything the Lord has planned for us)
This is not the end (Get ready, get ready, get ready, get ready)
This is not the end (Get ready, get ready, get ready, get ready)
This is not the end (Get ready, get ready, get ready, get ready)
