get up and walk lyrics – bethany dillon

“get up and walk”

i have got no one to blame
except if that someone’s me
i washed my hands, but just the same
my eyes confess for me
i come in filthy rags
you know i’m guilty

i wake up almost every night
saying your name
what i would give to walk in the light
but what i hide has made me lame
my face down on the ground
i wait to hear the healing sound

you break through my deafness
swing open the curtain
and i find the courage to get up and walk
i forget my weakness
for you’ve answered my loneliness
and through the mud on my eyes
i can see my hope has come

you’ll have to show me where to go
it’s been so long since i’ve used my feet
i got up today a cripple
and now i’m dancing
so let the power of your move
not stop with what i can see

i couldn’t walk
i couldn’t sing
i couldn’t love until you found me
