Garrels, Josh - Heaven's Knife Lyrics

Take my hand
I won't let go
We've waited so long

And all my life
I walked alone
To you, my heart, my home

Like the first man
I was cut so deep by heaven's knife
When I awoke from my sleep
Oh my Lord, she's beautiful
She's a part of me
She's my wife

Bound by love
One flesh to be
An unbroken ring

And I lay down
My life for thee
In love we are free

Like the first man
I was cut so deep by heaven's knife
When I awoke from my sleep
Oh my Lord, she' s beautiful
Walking up to me
Oh she's wonderful, standing next to me
Oh she's all
All that I can need, yeah
She's beautiful, she's a part of me
She's my wife

    Saw him for the first time at silobration and this is an emotional earworm

  3. jenniferrobinson2000

    You are absolutely a true artist,Me an my husband have been married 15 years an this song is is the only song he has ever said this is my song to you !I cry every time I hear it.....Its beautiful!

  4. Captain Crunched

    Really struggled to find the perfect first dance song for my wedding. But I think I've just found it. This is wonderful. So many "romantic" songs have lyrics that are shallow or cliche. Or they simply fail to capture the true meaning of Christian love. On the other hand, a good chunk of Christian music is, frankly, bland. Thank you, Josh Garrels, for using your talents to write Christ-honoring, lyrically rich, and musically engaging songs. They are a blessing.

  5. Jennifer De Mello Correa

    the cutest song ive ever heard.. really it's so full of all the good things in this world

  6. Jesse Lazo

    I'm getting married in July and I really love this song. Christian without having to repeat Christianese phrases. However, my brother and sister-in-law played this at their wedding. Does anyone know similar songs I can start listening to for ideas?

  7. Wangisani Kumalakwaanthu

    This song is perfect for the first!

  8. Samy

    comparring a woman to a knife? brave.

    Trav Wayne

    Hes referring to how God put Adam to a deep sleep to cut his side and remove a rib in order to create a wife, Eve. In no way is he comparing a woman to a knife. Blessings in Jesus name.

    my mother Theresa White played this song for me in 2015 and ive been waiting for this song to be a part of not only my life but my soul mate as well.

  11. Naomi Dowden

    I would live to have this song played at my wedding... And I would love to dance with the love of my life to this song. it means so much to me, to know that I can depend on someone and to know that he will always be there. he is my angel that god sent to me to not only save me, but teach me how to love and smile  and be happy. he is amazing and I don't know how I could live this world without him. he makes me feel like i've been cut by heavens knife.  and this amazing man of my dreams is my life.I love you Eduardo Alonzo

  12. Dad72

    This reminds me of one person. ..

  13. Kim Hanna

    My husband and I eloped 2 weeks ago we had a beautiful ceremony and this was our wedding song and I walked into this beautiful song. It was the best day of our lives. We both still cry every time we listen to this song. The words are PERFECT and the music is amazing. THANK You Josh Garrels for this masterpiece and for giving us our PERFECT wedding song. God Bless

  14. Naomi Dowden

    My mother "Theresa Lynn White" had inspired me, and when I heard this.... I cried and I knew this song would be perfect for my wedding.. THANK YOU MAMA and I LOVE YOU.

  25. ChristDiedFor YourSinsandMine

    Who can get to Heaven without prayer: “I say unto you that ye must pray always and not faint; that ye must not perform any thing unto the Lord save in the first place ye shall pray unto the Father in the name of Christ, that he will consecrate thy performance unto thee, that thy performance may be for the welfare of thy soul.”

    “And I pray the Father in the name of Christ that many of us, if not all, may be saved in his kingdom at that great and last day.”

    The Savior said to the ancient inhabitants of America, “Therefore ye must always pray unto the Father in my name;

    “And whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, which is right, believing that ye shall receive, behold it shall be given unto you.

    “Pray in your families unto the Father, always in my name, that your wives and your children may be blessed.”

    “And the twelve did teach the multitude; and behold, they did cause that the multitude should kneel down upon the face of the earth, and should pray unto the Father in the name of Jesus.

    “And the disciples did pray unto the Father also in the name of Jesus. And it came to pass that they arose and ministered unto the people.

    “And when they had ministered those same words which Jesus had spoken—nothing varying from the words which Jesus had spoken—behold, they knelt again and prayed to the Father in the name of Jesus.”

    “Wherefore, my beloved brethren, pray unto the Father with all the energy of heart, that ye may be filled with this love, which he hath bestowed upon all who are true followers of his Son, Jesus Christ; that ye may become the sons of God; that when he shall appear we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is; that we may have this hope; that we may be purified even as he is pure.”

    “I am mindful of you always in my prayers, continually praying unto God the Father in the name of his Holy Child, Jesus, that he, through his infinite goodness and grace, will keep you through the endurance of faith on his name to the end.”

    Concerning the Book of Mormon, Moroni wrote, “And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.

    “And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things.”

    Nephi, a Book of Mormon prophet, wrote, “And if they are not the words of Christ, judge ye—for Christ will show unto you with power and great glory that they are his words at the last day; and you and I shall stand face to face before his bar; and ye shall know that I have been commanded of him to write these things.”

    All these verses and more are in the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon truly is a testimony of Jesus Christ and has been brought forth by the power of God in these latter days. Anyone who believes these words from the Book of Mormon (and I know these words are true) should contact the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to speak with the missionaries and find out for themselves that the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored in these latter days.

    Anthony Frank

    ChristDiedFor YourSinsandMine If only everyone would feast upon those words and pray that way.

    Crabby Nabby

    ChristDiedFor YourSinsandMine I dont think the gospel ever needed restoration and I had no problem finding Jesus without the book of mormon. Just saying.

    aaron kimbrell

    The Book of Mormon also says that we can be gods someday which is completely shut down by God when he says there are no other gods and that he doesn’t even know of any. Mormonism also commits the fallacy of infinite regress in its theology. That is only scratching the surface of what is keeping Mormonism from the truth. I would encourage you to read the true Gospel of the Bible with an open and honest heart to find truth. I wish you the best of luck in your pursuit.

    Man... my wife and i have been struggling but we always use to listen to your music and stuff. One of my favorites is Zion and Babylon, our favorites. We hear your heart and the heart of God in that one. You dropped this song at a timely time of my life. Your songs give me strength and affirm my own convictions.

    Your songs are full of wisdom and reverence and knowledge of God's word. Not just a bunch of catchy phrases that sound Christian. Healing and refreshment for the soul!

  42. Israel Carbajal

  43. Curtsyfication

    This is one of the most stunning songs I've ever heard... It's so magical and beautifully crafted, any compliment I could give would sound like an understatement. Josh, this is art in it's purest form.

  44. Angela Martinez

    Love , Love , Love this song. it's a picture of a relationship with husband and wife. But more importantly its a picture of we being the bride and Christ our husband. Oh my what this does deep in your soul. God has truly blessed you Josh with not just an awesome voice but awesome lyrics. This is your ministry......

  45. Jacquelin Guigear

    This has got to be one of the most beautiful love songs in the history of the world! I can't stop loving it.

  46. Tamás Fábián

    We are going to have this song at my wedding this saturday :) <3

    Angie Smith

    Coincidentally, that's where I first heard this song... at a wedding yesterday. Not yours, of course, but they chose this as their first dance song. Beautiful song.

    Joshua Mayfield

    +Tamás Fábián Good choice! My bride walked down the aisle to a piano rendition of this.


    Oh my goodness. ..that's awesome.

  47. Stephan Ainley

    Wonderful.  The lyrics seem to be off in a couple places.  Since you wrote it I'll let you sing it however you want. :)

    Edit: I'm sorry if this was taken as a criticism. I only meant to imply the lyrics were different in the description versus what was sung. I absolutely love this song.

    Stephan Ainley

    I was referring to the lyrics in the description.  I love this song.  Did you think I meant musically?

    Stephan Ainley

    It's not even a critique.  The lyrics in the description were different from the lyrics being sung.  I was trying to be helpful in case he wanted to fix it.  I'm not sure where the hostility is coming from but I'm not biting.


    +Stephan Ainley fret not the trollish trolls of troll driven trolleys !

  48. barney10ist

    I just love this picture you so beautifully create.

  49. chobeeboy44

    Wow! I love the 50's groove you have in there. Perfect to slow dance with your spouse! Sweet!
