I hear this song by Addison Road on the radio about once a day and I love it.   The first two lines are my favorite.  So profound.  If everything really does come down to love, then what are we waiting for?  Why do we hesitate and hide when we know the ONE who is LOVE?  1 John 4: 7-8 tells us what love is…7Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.  8Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God IS love.  

Here are the lyrics to the song and the video below. Check out  www.myspace.com/addisonroad

If everything comes down to love
Then just what am I afraid of
When I call out Your name
Something inside awakes in my soul
How quickly I forget I’m Yours

I’m not my own
I’ve been carried by You
All my life

Everything rides on hope now
Everything rides on faith somehow
When the world has broken me down
Your love sets me free

When my life is like a storm
Rising waters all I want is the shore
You say I’ll be ok and
Make it through the rain
You are my shelter from the storm

Everything rides on hope now
Everything rides on faith somehow
When the world has broken me down
Your love sets me free

I am not my own
I’ve been carried by you all my life

Everything rides on hope now
Everything rides on faith somehow
When the world has broken me down
Your love sets me free

You’ve become my hearts desire
I will sing Your praises higher
Cause Your love sets me free
Your love sets me free
Your love sets me free
