Garrison Doles: Song Lyrics

From the Beginning

(click title to read lyrics)
Words and music by Garrison Doles

At the sunrise of creation when the dark gave way to the light
It was Jesus brought creation out of the deepest well of the night
And he walked on this earth
Yes he walked upon this earth
He was right there all along
From the beginning

Oh the hours that I’ve puzzled this mysterious gospel of John
Just can’t seem to get my mind around it how could there ever be such a one
But he walked on this earth
He came and walked upon this earth
He was right there all along
From the beginning

And though the world was made through him
You could see that they never really knew him
And when he showed up to be with his own
They disowned him and turned him away
But for all who received him
And every last one who believed him
He gathered around him and brought them to be in the family of God
Don’t you remember you’re in the family of God

And the word was with God and the word was God
And the word was made flesh and the word was God
And he walked on this earth
Yes he walks upon this earth
He was right there all along
Oh yes right here all along
You know he’s been right here all along
From the beginning
