    Yo. The lines that touched me were

    1."Why are you crying?" the stranger asks
    As I wipe away the tears
    I point toward the great abyss
    The source of all my fears
    "I must get across and get to that light
    For it represents my only hope tonight
    But when I saw the chasm, all that hope was lost
    I've spent so long in the dark and the rain
    That the sight of the light made my heart sing again
    But the gulf's so wide, and there's no way across"

    The stranger smiled, and took my hand
    He said, "But you are wrong, my friend
    You cannot cross the gulf yourself, that's true"
    He led me down toward the edge
    And pointed just over the ledge
    And said, "Behold, I built a bridge for you"

    And 2.As the battle rages on and on
    I face the things that put my faith to the test
    When fallen angels won't leave me alone
    Father, come and lay the demon to rest
    When my sword has broken off in my hand
    I see the dark futility of the flesh
    When I'm about to fall, please help me stand
    Father, come and lay the demon to rest

    I was about to post a line or two from I Am that I always considered my favorites but then I decided they were all too good to just post a couple. So ignoring that song, I guess the opening line to As The World Bleeds would be one of the top.

    "And I will never leave her side
    We walk the tightrope between faith and fear
    Each moment of our lives"


    But the whole of On Eagles' Wings really...

    The final chorus of "Mirror of Souls" gets me every time.

    Also, while I echo Rawshik's sentiments about "I Am," I particularly like, " I am the Word who spoke no word, with a thousand angels waiting for my call." I even made it my ringtone for a good long while.

    "You can save me...I believe." And then the bell tolls. That was absolutely genius. I seriously cried when I heard it the first time. It hits me in the gut whenever I hear it.

    I just keep thinking "You Jesus CAN save...even me." Fills me with gratitude. Thank you, Jesus...

    Honestly, and this is probably the genius of Matt, but EVERY song has something in it that hits me. Even 'The Gift of Music' I feel was written for me!
    I'm not exaggerating at all either - whether it's the chorus of On Eagle's Wings or the amazing and clever lyrics in 30 pieces of Silver, I find gold in every song.

    "I am". I actually cried the first time I listened to it. It's just such a well-constructed song.

    "I am righteous, I am holy, I am three and one and only."
    "I am the bringer of righteous desire and the fourth man you see in the midst of the fire, I am the bringer of life and the promise of Israel."
    "I am the word who spoke no word, with thousand angels waiting for my call."
    "I am the bread that feeds the starving man upon the street."
    "I am the parent's love, unchanging, unconditional and pure."

    Hearts once soft have turned to stone
    Left their KING to die alone
    lips that once echoed praised
    now mock the HOLY gift of grace

    You know I don't want to sound to cheesy here, but thank you Matt smith, Shawn bensen, Jon hinds, Val Allen wood, and Jared Oldham for obviously staying close to The Lord so we can reap the benifits... You honestly have changed my life (even if it is ever so suttle) for the better. I created this thread as a thank you. :)

    I love all songs (NO exception!!) and completely adore the lyrics!
    One of my all time favourite songs' Behtlehem and one of my favourite lines is:

    "Has this little child come to redeem us all?"

    Don't really know why, but to me it shows the whole christmas-story in a different, very serious aspect, which deeply touches me.

    Thanks for everything Theocracy, my favourite metal band :headbang:
