Gospel Songs Mp3

Tenth Avenue North leader Mike Donehey releases his first Christian radio single as a solo artist today. “All Together” asks what the Church might look like if it embraced even more radical vulnerability and acceptance. The official music video and official lyric video also debut today on YouTube.

When the members of Tenth Avenue North determined that they were being called into new and different areas of life, Mike began to write. Mike soon wrote more songs than he had ever written for an album. In that writing, he explored questions like those in “All Together.”

“There is something sacred that happens when addicts get together in a recovery circle. They know they will be met with 100% acceptance, therefore can be totally vulnerable,” Mike shares. “’All Together’ encourages people not only to take that first step towards vulnerability but also to participate in radical acceptance of those who do.”

Donehey explains that this song is an encouragement for others to be honest with each other but also to become a safe place for others.

“Many of us can’t imagine confession being a beautiful thing because when we’ve tried it, we’ve been met with shame or hatred. James 5:16 says, therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. 1 John says that if we confess our sins to Him, He forgives us, but confess to each other to be healed. What if we prepared ourselves so that when someone comes to us with a confession, we don’t interrogate them? What if instead we meet them with grace, be a safe shelter and set each other free as part of each other’s healing?”

Lyrics

No more playin’ Mr. Nice Guy
I’m done pretending that I’m alright
I fake a laugh, keep acting upper class
Like I’ve never had a struggle in my whole life

Can I tell you the state I’m in
Cracks are where the light gets in

Maybe we don’t have to have it all together
What if grace made it safe to tell you the truth
Maybe we can make a shelter for each other
Turnin lies into light and we’ll make it through
All together all together
Love keeps our broken pieces all together

I want a church that looks like twelve steps
Where all are honest and accepted
But it’s gonna take myself to cultivate
The kind of life that others haven’t seen yet

Do I dare tell you the state I’m in
Cracks are where the light gets in

Maybe we don’t have to have it all together
What if grace made it safe to tell you the truth
Maybe we can make a shelter for each other
Turnin lies into light and we’ll make it through
All together all together
Love keeps our broken pieces all together

Am I the only one who struggles here and now
Am I the only one who wrestles with my doubt
And if I tell you all my secrets will you go running out
There’s only one way to find out
There’s only one way to find out

Maybe we don’t have to have it all together
What if grace made it safe to tell you the truth
Maybe we can make a shelter for each other
Turnin lies into light and we’ll make it through
All together all together
Love keeps our broken pieces all together

All together all together
Love brings our broken pieces all together
