    "Wide Open" Lyrics

    Heaven's gates were closed
    and there seemed to be no hope
    for fallen man
    We were prisoners of our sin
    With no way to enter in
    but God had a plan
    The Father knew there had to be
    a perfect sacrifice
    So Jesus came, a cross was raised
    and when He laid down His life

    Wide open, wide open
    They nailed His arms wide open
    After three days in a cold grave
    the power of sin was broken
    Now with outstretched arms
    He welcomes in
    Everyone who trusts in Him
    His nail-scarred hands hold heaven's gates wide open

    For so long my eyes were closed
    I couldn't see a way of hope
    For someone like me
    And in my despair I cried
    There's got to be more to this life
    Lord help me please
    And the Father said
    There had to be a perfect sacrifice
    That's why Jesus came, a cross was raised
    and He laid down His life

    repeat chorus

    For every weary heart that aches
    For every dream this world will break
    There's a promise in its place
    God has made a way

    repeat chorus
