S U B S T A N C E Lyrics – Joshua Leventhal

Vapor is a siren
Come to snare this sailor’s faith
Its vow hollow desire
But it dissolves as a wraith

But I want substance
I want soil
I want grain wrought from the toil
I want mercy that I can touch
I want substance in this love

We’ve traded Your bread and wine
For the meals that go down smooth
We cashed the cheapest vouchers
Spent them with no thought of You

But I want substance
I want soil
I want grain wrought from the toil
I want mercy that I can touch
I want substance in this love

So may I put my hands in Your scars
May my own eyes behold Thy wounds
This life You gave so willingly
I want to give mine too
So that I look more like You
So that I look more like You
