Audrey Assad - Slow Lyrics




You've drawn so close that it's hard to see you
And you speak so softly that it's hard to hear you
And I guess that's what I get for inviting you in
Because you took me at my word
And now I know

Faith is not a fire
As much as it's a glow
A quiet lovely burning
Underneath the snow
And it's not too much
It's just enough to give me hope
Cause love moves slow
Love moves slow

You've grown so dear that it's hard to miss you
And you come so near that it's hard to feel you
Oh, and I guess that's how it is when I let you move
Because you take me at my word
Oh, and now I know

That faith is not a fire
As much as it's a glow
A steady humble lamplight
In the window
And it's not too much
It's just enough to give me hope
'Cause love moves slow
Love moves slow

I heard that faith moves mountains
I know it moves my feet
To follow you
And maybe I'm a mountain
Because it's moving me
To follow you

My faith is not a fire
As much as it's a glow
A little burning ember
In my weary soul
And it's not too much
It's just enough to give me hope
Because your love moves slow
Yeah, your love moves slow

So I move slow
Because you move slow
Love moves slow
Let's move slow.

    You've drawn so close that it's hard to see you
    And you speak so softly that it's hard to hear you
    And I guess that's what I get for inviting you in
    Because you took me at my word
    And now I know

    Faith is not a fire
    As much as it's a glow
    A quiet lovely burning
    Underneath the snow
    And it's not too much
    It's just enough to give me hope
    Cause love moves slow
    Love moves slow

    You've grown so dear that it's hard to miss you
    And you come so near that it's hard to feel you
    Oh, and I guess that's how it is when I let you move
    Because you take me at my word
    Oh, and now I know

    That faith is not a fire
    As much as it's a glow
    A steady humble lamplight
    In the window
    And it's not too much
    It's just enough to give me hope
    'Cause love moves slow
    Love moves slow

    I heard that faith moves mountains
    I know it moves my feet
    To follow you
    And maybe I'm a mountain
    Because it's moving me
    To follow you

    My faith is not a fire
    As much as it's a glow
    A little burning ember
    In my weary soul
    And it's not too much
    It's just enough to give me hope
    Because your love moves slow
    Yeah, your love moves slow

    So I move slow
    Because you move slow
    Love moves slow
    Let's move slow.

  11. adorablebelle

    This song is lovely... lovely.

  12. Kelly Ann Duplantis

    For the love of Liz Lemon, release this version to iTunes! ;) Please.

  13. Quinton Blue

    She's the Flannery O'Connor of music. I like this simple take far more than the orchestrated clutter on the Sparrow Records version. Glad she went indie. 

  14. ZioN NoiZ

    she will get to the GOD´s family right! but she is also just a death human, Jesus Christ has lived before he was born by her, he is the Word, he is GOD the son. but mary is dead and waiting for the resorrection,like every human.

  15. ariesxflame

    oh sweet child of God. Audrey is Catholic. and Mary is the Mother of Our God, so if Jesus Loves her so much, we should too--respect and love her, not worship her. dont worry. please read up on how great God's mother is, I mean God chose to come to this world through her. so that says a lot! :)

    may God continue to be with you!
    lots of love =]

  16. ZioN NoiZ

    Mother Mary rofl, she is dead she wait´s for resurrection, Mary is not GOD, don´t worship her! She is only our sister not more. Follow only Jesus Christ and GOD the Father, nobody else should worshipped. There are no human people going to heaven or hell. Read the New Tastement,i hope you will believe what is writen there and do the right things not what people or the katholic chuch(the bitch on the tier in revelation) is saying. Satureday is the day of the Lord not sunday(day of Satan,Sungod).

    Marie TUCKER

    You mock the Mother of God to ypur deyriment...if we ad humans live and respect our own mother..how much more Jeusu. She is the Mother of God not because she created him but if you believe what Jesus sats.."I and the Father are one, whoever sees me, sees Him. Instead of spouting off your man made understanding...pray to God to open your eyes and heart...Jesus is the Sun, Mary is the Moon reflecting His Light, not her own.

  17. Fr. Nate Harburg

    Jesus, I love you.

  18. marcheline717

    Just saw her in concert last night on the Struggle Tour with Tenth Ave North! Great show! God led me to her song Restless with Matt Maher and I've been a fan since. Amazing voice, profound lyrics. Help me to be in the presence of my Lord, to worship Him and love Him even more. Thanks, Audrey for allowing God to use you to bless us all! Praying for you and your husband.
