Title song on the new CD I'm working on.

  1. Stained glass windows, candles burnin’, statues, altars, and  flowers try—
    To lift our pilgrim souls to Glory, as well-worn dogmas pass us by—
    Songs echoed by marble angels, hymns that summon realms of light—
    Is this where they’ll find the Lord, those still out there in the night—?

Chorus:  Beyond all walls and barriers— where pretense falls apart—
               
Escaping limitations, foolishness plays its part—
                In the infinite reaches of the universe— 
               
Love will always be—
                a direction of the heart— 
               
A direction of the heart—

  1. There’s comfort in holy passion, traditions of men abound—
     We hold our place of mission sacred, addicted to holy ground—
     
    Servants need no fortress, just a road to where there’s need—
     I’ll bleed like my savior, in the streets where people wait to be freed—

Chorus:  Beyond all walls and barriers— where pretense falls apart—
               
Escaping limitations, foolishness plays its part—
               
In the infinite reaches of the universe— 
               
Love will always be—
                a direction of the heart— 
               
A direction of the heart—

Bridge:  Where two or three gather In His name— a new church comes into life—
              Outside the gate, where he suffered— we must go to turn the tide—
              The gifts he gives reveal our ministry— dream nothing that is too small—
              Fears and doubts may tug at you— you need to lose them all—

Chorus:  Beyond all walls and barriers— where pretense falls apart—
               
Escaping limitations, foolishness plays its part—
                In the infinite reaches of the universe—
               
Love will always be—
                a direction of the heart— 
               
A direction of the heart—
                A direction of the heart—  
                A direction of the heart—

Reviewed by Ronald Hull 11/26/2014
A new hymn is born. All it needs is a bawdy barroom melody to make it complete!

I'm not being facetious. Throughout the church's history, bawdy songs that were sung in taverns were taken and written into hymns and Christmas carols. Immediately, the sinful knew the melody and learned the new words in time.
