Steven Curtis Chapman - Speechless Lyrics

My words fall like drops of rain.
My lips are like clouds.
I've said so many things, trying to figure you out.
As mercy opens my eyes, my words are stolen away.
With this breathtaking view of your grace...

And I am Speechless
I'm astonished and amazed
I am silenced by your wondrous grace.
You have saved me
You have raised me from the grave.
And I am Speechless
In your presence now.
I'm astounded as I consider how
You have shown us the love that leaves us speechless.

So what kind of love can this be
That will trade heaven's throne for a cross
To think that you still celebrate
For finding just one who was lost.
To know you rejoice over us
The God of this whole universe.
It's a story too great for words...


We are speechless

Oh how great is the love
The Father has lavished upon us,
That we should be called the sons and daughters of God

We are speechless
(We stand in awe of your grace)
so amazed
(We stand in awe of your mercy)
You have saved us
(We stand in awe of your love)
from the grave
(We are speechless)

I am speechless, I'm astonished and amazed
I am silenced by your wondrous grace
You have saved me
You have raised me from the grave.
And I am speechless in your presence now.
I'm astounded as I consider how
You have shown us
A love that leaves us speechless

We stand in awe of your cross
We stand in awe of your power
We are speechless
We stand in awe of your grace
We stand in awe of your mercy
We stand in awe of your love
We are speechless

    Not a Christian, but Steven Curtis Chapman can write some good ass music

    GOD Almighty ( Father, Son, Holy Spirit) has a way of getting My attention , via Jesus Christ of Nazareth, The Son of GOD, that leaves Me awestruck and speechless. Amen and Roger That!!🙏💪🤘🇺🇸🇻🇦🇮🇱😄

  6. logan eckert

    I love this song SO much!

  7. fabio silva

    I believe in Jesus Christ. He is the Son of God. There is nothing in the universe that can compare to his love and grace. Doesnt matter how far we have gone our how deep we have drown, hes aways there. Why? As he said to Moses, I Am. He is Love.



  9. Vel Perkings

    Still as amazing as ever

    I was never a fan of Steven Curtis Chapman. A friend of mine told me to listen to this song when the CD came out. When I heard this song, I went out and bought the CD. The first 5 songs have ministered to me in some of my darkest hours. It is truly infused with the Holy Spirit's power and I am so grateful to Steven Curtis Chapman and his music team. God bless you for posting this.

  11. Jason Effinger

    I used to listen to this song and album all the time in the car because my mom had the CD and I liked listening to whatever she had playing as a kid. Back then, the meaning of the song never fully came through as I had little understanding of God despite coming to Him for the first time at the age of 6. Looking back on this song now, having grown more and more in my understanding of Christ's ways through Scripture, I can fully sense God's awe, power, and mercy knowing all He's done, is doing, and will do for us and it leaves me speechless. That's the amazing thing about growing up on Christian music. You can both be nostalgic about it and understand it better as you become older and wiser in your walk with God!

    A big thanks to God and Steven Curtis Chapman for the memories and the true meaning of music!


    Keep looking with an open mind and you'll find the claims of Christianity are BOGUS.

    Samuel Petruescu

    @NIC FEL
    Keep looking with an open mind and you'll find that the claims of atheism are the ones that are bogus.
    God Bless

    Destiny Luna

    Well said! I agree 100%! 😊


    Sorry, honestly investigate it and you'll learn that the claims of Christianity is valid. There are also non-Christian sources that affirm the existence of Jesus. What's bogus is that website.

    JA VW

    Nobody can understand God at the age of 6 lol. Im 36 and I still dont understand him

  12. Issac Murphy

    I believe in God

  13. hanmar01

  14. exlukeman

    Directed here by Matthew West's new song "The Sound of a Life Changing"

  15. Kathy Curtiss

    this a most favorite of mine and it has a real true meaning.

  16. Lorraine Galusha

    I know Him and he is the original Devil. Most Christians go to hell. It is a terrible secret. I was tortured so I would not tell but I am telling the whole world. Christianity is Satanic and a huge lie except for few. Thank God for nothing.

  17. Joshua Micetich

    Relative killed a commie heathen attempted murderer; well done.

    the best he has ever done............................................

  20. zion bayewu

    i wasn't really searching for this song, but i'm so happy i stumbled upon it. it feels so nostalgic and comforting, listening to this again.

  21. Judi B

    When I first heard this song by Steven Curtis Chapman, I was Speechless.  It is so beautiful to worship God through music.  He is a fantastic example of this music.

  22. H & D garza

    I use to be able to play this song on my guitar, but that was a long time ago. I am pretty sure I can, if I just practice it again.

    Mandarin Duck

    I'm sure you could! - be sure to share it with everyone if you do! : )

  23. john erick eugenio

    being speechless because of GOD's glory........ that leads me in the right way of my life

  24. DonDraperism

    Awesome song. Awesome song to focus on our Lord. "For the sake of His sorrowful Passon, have mercy on us and on the whole world." God Bless.

  25. ckd87

    It's funny, I'm wearing my Speechless shirt from this tour. My wife surprised me with tickets to this show in Akron, Oh for my birthday. He was here with Geoff Moore. It was like the 6th time I'd seen him but it was still great. I dig this shirt out every now and then and my wife keeps saying she is going to throw it out as it has more holes in it than just about anything. But I love it.

  26. Stew

    My dad bought this album for me in 1999. Before that I had never listened to christian music. I not only liked it but at the time I was already reading the bible for the first time. Amazing music!

  27. Rachel Rudd

    love it

  28. Rebecca Parker

    I love the music of Steven Curtis Chapman he is a man that sings of great love for the Lord Jesus.

  29. RR Parish

    Call on the Name of the Lord! Just recently I've been pondering how "little" our love is as humans, how subject to change, and it is so amazing to me that His love is perfect and unchangeable towards us, no matter how much our love towards him changes day by day--but it's true. He came to earth, endured life in a sinful world for 33 years, and was killed at the hands of sinful men to draw you into sweet fellowship with Himself--and that desire is still there. =) I am praying for you today!

  30. Gabriel Correa

    dude.. please.. audio quality !

  31. tall32guy

    I did something similar a few years ago, and God whooped me in BAD on the backside! LOL My cat died, my apartment almost burned down, and my car broken into (smashed window) and my cell phone stolen. The result? I learned my lesson and I'm NEVER having any other God in my life but God himself! :)

  32. Onyi Ononye

    Oh yes that intro

  33. joplimat

    That intro....

  34. BillLykken

    How true this song is.....Thank you for posting it.

  35. Daniel Gerard Molina Pretell

    All Glory to our Lord JesusChrist who came to save us and give us true life!!!!! Indeed as Steven says there are no words that could express or describe all what HE IS! King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

  36. Mary777

    I don't like Lady Gaga anyway so I wouldn't listen to her music on here even if someone paid me. I would rather listen to Steven anyday over Gaga.

  37. wog

    People are running after lusts of this world indirectly worshiping the prince of the air.This song has helped me a lot in dried up times.:D
    One more day over,we are one more day close to the return of the Lord.Forget Gaga.People like that are doomed for destruction.Only thing we can do is cry and pray to the lord to save lost like them.
    May God Bless Us All and prepare us;who desperately wait for his soon coming.

  38. wog

    Isaiah 46:4
    His care is awesome and his plans for us, are far more than we can imagine.

  39. Kyle Craven

    So sad that Lady Gaga's "Speechless" has so many more views than this one. God bless everyone that chose this song over Gaga's.

  40. Blessings2UForever

    That's amazing! I'll have to check out those titles and the rest his older CDs especially. Thanks :)

  41. Jennifer Pruitt

    speechless is my 3rd favorite scc album. next to more to this life and the great adventure. awesome!! but this song makes me feel closer to God every time i hear it.

  42. StickFiguresCO

    God's mercies are new every morning. I truly feel blessed beyond what I deserve that He would consider me not just a friend, but a son. I love this song, it truly speaks to me and gives me hope. :)

  43. sergitocastrog

    LOVE IT!!!!!!!

  44. sergitocastrog

    God spoke to me reading this rigth now.

  45. Zachary Rumley

    We are speechless when we consider the great power and love of God.

  46. Murl Center

    someday it will be a free world for Christ has defeated the grave and death and death and hell will be cast into the lake of fire. All life can be saved by faith in God's fathomless free gift he gives to the sons of men for whosoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.! Amen

  47. Murl Center

    its great reading the testimonies on these good pages for 'they overcame the evil one with the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony.''

  48. Blessings2UForever

    This CD will always be one of the greatest things to happen to my life. It truly revolutionized my walk with Christ, and I can't imagine what I would be doing without it. Thank you SCC for an amazing compilation of songs in worship of the King of Kings!

  49. MrAnegmr

    an amazing song, not only a powerful message but the music itself is so moving

  50. Terra Arellano

    a friend recomended this and it is beautiful, reminds me of the love of our LORD AND SAVIOUR, very nice thank you!!!

  51. M28443

    God Bless you ! What a wonderful, heartfelt comment !

  52. Jonathan Cariveau

    You have to understand, Christians believe that God is Love and that Love is present everywhere. The very fact that you are capable of being conscious right now, and understanding the concept of love, means you are capable of entering into that spirituality. When you have discovered this truth, you understand the meaning of life and can't help but praise Jesus Christ. Steven C. Chapman knew this and felt this and breathed this when he was singing this :)

  53. Tina Maine

    they are about god because they love the lord.........and who says it isn't an appropriate time to praise the lord?????we can praise him regardles of rather we are at church orat home on the internet listening to songs.....if u dont' like it then dont read the post....but we will be praying for you.......

  54. LØU

    @cynthiabruant1 thats how i love my GOD , i praise him even in internet world , GOD BLESS !

  55. Cynthia Bruant

    @jenel123456 and @ChachisNightmare why are the top comments about god? This is not an appropriate time to praise god. for fucks sake go to church if you feel like it. but dont trow this garbage around here.

  56. 708Chrystal

    SPEECHLESS!!!! Indeed when i think of the Love that the God of the UNIVERSE showed to us mankind, as i reflect upon His sacrifice, the shameful crucification, the crown of thorns, before you Son of David, Christ Jesus, on my knees.... am speechless. thank you steven, i couldn't put it in better words

  57. mountainkittycat

    @claudiaceara1 Concordo plenamente! É uma canção muito bonita. E desculpem as minhas habilidades de fala pobres. :)

  58. Brodawg

    Here is a fantastic music video that the Christian world will love! It's called "Don't forget about the walk." It was written and created by a small town pastor that is also making a feature film and has written four books. You don't want to miss it! You can see the music video right now by searching for Alan Maki on youtube and finding the title of the song. It would only take a second to look! He has a website but websites are blocked on here. Look him up! He has devotionals and an app too!

  60. Steven Call

  62. Kellogs43able

  63. MarioWario

    @littleboeep Well, think of how better off you are, than me. I became involved with evil, true evil. I prayed to Satan, no response because I was saved. God bless!

  64. Stefan Falquet

    I'm a Christian on a backslide. Anyone else out there? Feel like i'll never get i the seed that got choked out...

    D! A! G!

  81. fairyhaven13

    when i hear this song images of beautiful things God's made and done flash through my head really fast, like a scene from an epic movie. =)


    @nezkeys79 sounds like the regular (4/4? forgot my music terms already) timing to me.

  83. Jim Robbins

    "Speechless" wants me to rave about what the Lord has done for me by handing my life over to Him. I can not and do not want to keep this to myself and I want to share with others the gift that He has given me. To have been Blessed with the most powerful love that exists just wants to make me yell ofhe glory int the name of Jesus.

  84. LØU

    You are my Savior,healer,redeemer,friend....I LOVE YOU LORD....

  85. starshine428

    I remember the firs ttme I heard this song, it took my breath away. I bought the cd back then and I've never tired of this beautiful song. SCC remains my all time favorite artist.

  86. tigermark64

    This is my favorite song by Steven Curtis Chapman, I like the "orchestral ending" along with the opening guitars.

  87. L L

    this song reminds of how i feel in front of God, all the time........speechless.....this song will put anybody who hear the words of it taking strides in heaven......

  88. truly tiff
