stop and listen lyrics – bethany dillon

“stop and listen”

i wake up
start the rush and pour some coffee
things to do pile up
oh so quickly
too many days i feel like
i run on empty
does anyone else out there feel like me?

but i’d be a fool to forfeit….
the chance to take a moment….

for you to rise like the dawn….
over my cold, tired heart….
what i thought i had lost….
finds me when i stop….
stop and listen….

it’s the same slowing down lesson we all learn
but i don’t pay much attention
till i crash and burn

so all together….
let’s stop and sit at his feet….
my sisters and brothers….
