Jesus at a Distance Lyrics – Casting Crowns

YouTube video

Verse 1:
I been keepin’ Jesus at a distance, so afraid to let Him get too close
To the two lives I’ve been livin’, as if He couldn’t see them both
Close enough to feel the warmth of the fire, far enough away for me to hide
But I’m tired of walkin’ the wire between the darkness and the light

Chorus:
No more Jesus at a distance, no more pushin’ You away
I don’t wanna settle for the back row of some Sunday mornin’ faith
So I’m holdin’ nothin’ back now, ’cause there’ nothin’ You don’t see
No more Jesus at a distance, come change every part of me
Every part of me

Verse 2:
I was offered resurrection, but I settled for the grave
I had the chance to walk on water, but I chose to play it safe
I’ve been hiding from the Healer, I thought my wounds were out of reach
But at the end of all my runnin’, You’re still runnin’ after me

Chorus:
So, no more Jesus at a distance, no more pushin’ You away
I don’t wanna settle for the back row of some Sunday mornin’ faith
So, I’m holdin’ nothin’ back now, ’cause there’ nothin’ You don’t see
No more Jesus at a distance, come change every part of me
Every part of me

Bridge:
All my dreams and all my treasures
(Every part of me, every part of me)
When I can barely hold it together
(Every part of me, every part of me)
When I can’t control where tomorrow’s goin’
(Every part of me, every part of me)
When the ghost of my yesterday’s come callin’
(Every part of me, every part of me)
Who I am when there’s no one else around
(Every part of me, every part of me)
When the sun comes up ’til the sun goes down
(Every part of me, every part of me)

Chorus:
So, no more Jesus at a distance, no more pushin’ You away
I don’t wanna settle for the back row of some Sunday mornin’ faith
So I’m holdin’ nothin’ back now, ’cause there’ nothin’ You don’t see
No more Jesus at a distance, come change every part of me
Every part of me, every part of me (Every part of me)
Every part of me

Outro:
So I’m holdin’ nothin’ back now, ’cause there’ nothin’ You don’t see
No more Jesus at a distance, come change every part of me
No more Jesus at a distance, come change every part of me
