Lyrics Christian FourTwelve - The Door

The judgment of a broken past
The voices from the greener grass
Still throwing stones today, will they ever fade
Still I hang my head in shame
From shadows of my guilt and blame
They live to follow me, will I ever be free

I've come so far but still I have so far to go
And after all these years there's one thing I need to know

Can the cross open the door?
Can Your love write the final chapter?
Who I was before will it matter anymore?
Can Your grace set me free?
Can it break the chains that always held me
And do what no one's done before
Throw the past away and open the door?

In moments of my weakest days
Your strength becomes my only way
Of knowing who I am, a vessel in Your hands
You see my heart and still somehow
You only see the here and now
'cause who I used to be
You cast into the sea

You gave Your word the past would be always be the past
Then You gave Your life so I would never have to ask
It's taken me a lifetime to see
The only thing that wipes the slate clean
Is this undeniable truth

That the cross opens the door
Your love writes the final chapter
Who I was before it doesn't matter anymore
It takes Your grace to set me free
To break the chains that always held me
And do what no one's done before
Throw the past away and open the door
