The Altar and the Door September 23, 2007

I got a copy of Casting Crown’s new CD.  I have listened to it a couple times and so far my favorite song on it is “Somewhere in the Middle”  Here are the lyrics: 

Somewhere between the hot and the cold
Somewhere between the new and the old
Somewhere between who I am and who I used to be
Somewhere in the middle, You’ll find me

Somewhere between the wrong and the right
Somewhere between the darkness and the light
Somewhere between who I was and who You’re making me
Somewhere in the middle, You’ll find me

Just how close can I get, Lord, to my surrender without losing all control

Fearless warriors in a picket fence, reckless abandon wrapped in common sense
Deep water faith in the shallow end and we are caught in the middle
With eyes wide open to the differences, the God we want and the God who is
But will we trade our dreams for His or are we caught in the middle
Are we caught in the middle

Somewhere between my heart and my hands
Somewhere between my faith and my plans
Somewhere between the safety of the boat and the crashing waves

Somewhere between a whisper and a roar
Somewhere between the altar and the door
Somewhere between contented peace and always wanting more
Somewhere in the middle You’ll find me

Just how close can I get, Lord, to my surrender without losing all control

Lord, I feel You in this place and I know You’re by my side
Loving me even on these nights when I’m caught in the middle

Here is a link to where you can hear a clip of this song along with all the songs on their new CD:

“Somewhere in the Middle” is my favorite from that CD too. “East to West” (I think that’s #4) is also excellent. There are a few videos of Mark Halls testimony on YouTube and elsewhere- he has an excellent story, and his testimony and music really captures the daily struggle that each of us believers have in this life.
