Keith Green Story (Part 7)

Keith Green – Your Love Broke Through

Here is something I got off the internet and this website has lots of Keith’s great songs:

Keith Green: His Music, Ministry, and Legacy

My mom hung up the phone and broke into tears. She had just heard the news of Keith Green’s death. I was only ten on that summer day in 1982, but the memory is still clear. It felt almost like a death in the family. We often listened to Keith Green’s music and it has permeated deep into me. Even now when I read the story of the prodigal son, I hear his “Prodigal Son Suite” in my mind. I can’t read about the Israelites wandering in the desert without chuckling over his goofy manna improvisation in “So You Wanna Go Back to Egypt” (Ba-manna Bread!). Even now, about three decades later, Keith Green is one of the most-played artists in my iTunes library. My kids and I dance to his “Scripture Song Medley.” Every Easter, I play “The Easter Song” and “The Victor” as soon as I wake up. Read on for more about Keith Green’s music, his ministry and his enduring legacy.

2nd Chapter of Acts – Love Broke Through
 

Uploaded by on Jun 1, 2009

Great song by the religious group 2nd Chapter of Acts, but originally by Keith Green and his friend Todd Fishkind. Lead vocals by Phil Keggy. Speaks of a man who found God. I DO NOT OWN THIS SONG AND CLAIM NO COPYWRITE.

Like a dreamer who was trying to build a highway to the sky
All my hopes would come tumbling down
And I never knew just why until today
When you pulled away the clouds that hung like curtains on my eyes
I was blind, all these wasted years I thought I was so wise
But then you took me by surprise
Like waking up from the longest dream
How real it seemed
Until your love broke through
And I was lost in a fantasy
That rhymed at me
Until your love broke through
All my life I have been searching
For that crazy missing part
With one touch you just rolled the storm that held my heart
Now I see that the answer was as simple as my need to let you in
And I am so sure that I could never doubt your gentle touch again
It’s like the power of the wind
Like waking up from the longest dream
How real it seemed
Until your love broke through
And I was lost in a fantasy
That rhymed at me
Until your love broke through
Like waking up from the longest dream
How real it seemed
Until your love broke through
