  • That you would give? if you were to be honest,
  • 00:04:44.797 --> 00:04:45.798
  • If you were to be honest, you would have to say,
  • 00:04:45.865 --> 00:04:47.066
  • You would have to say, "god's nail scarred hands
  • 00:04:47.133 --> 00:04:49.435
  • "god's nail scarred hands have provided things

  • Show you his feet and take you further
  • 00:05:03.583 --> 00:05:05.585
  • And take you further than you ever were
  • 00:05:05.651 --> 00:05:06.586

  • Could have got you there. only god could have
  • 00:05:14.527 --> 00:05:16.062
  • Only god could have opened that door because
  • 00:05:16.129 --> 00:05:18.731
  • Opened that door because that's the kind of god he is.
  • 00:05:18.798 --> 00:05:21.834
  • That's the kind of god he is. you see, the only way
