Cedar of Lebanon Lyrics – Skye Peterson

YouTube video

Verse 1:
Solomon spoke of the cedars
That crown the snow-topped hills
They stood like the trees of Eden
Keeping steady and still
I wish I could say the same, it’s true
But as the seasons change, they change me too

Verse 2:
And maybe if I mustered the courage
I could face the shifting winds
And flourish through His nourishment
When faith wears thin
If you hold me, hold me tightly now
‘Cause when winter comes, I’m on shaky ground

Chorus:
So let me be
As steadfast as an evergreen
Let me carry on
Stay strong like a cedar of Lebanon, ooh, yeah

Verse 3:
These February skies, they don’t scare me anymore
Each morning brings the light like Heaven’s opening its door
Every day I keep on living
Be it rain or be it shine
Let me be patient in the waiting
With the Kingdom inside

Chorus:
So day and night
Let me reach the heights and scrape the skies
Let me rest upon
The Promise like a cedar of Lebanon, ooh, yeah

Bridge:
Oh, and if You come to me, will You cut me down and build me into Your temple now?
Dwell in me and make me new again
Oh, and when my evergreen should turn to brown
I trust You to make me new somehow
‘Cause You, O Lord, are faithful to the end

Verse 4:
Transform, O Lord, this metaphor
I’ll never be that strong
But Your love will stand in the winter storm, oh

Chorus:
Like a cedar of Lebanon, oh-oh
As steadfast as an evergreen
And You will carry on
Stay strong like a cedar
Let me carry on
Stay strong like a cedar of Lebanon, ooh, yeah
