"Build Us Back"

"Build Us Back" the incredible song from Know Hope Collective has just been added to Worship and Glory Radio. Even more important however is the corresponding video from the Hands and Feet Project below. It is the story of Baby Mackenson, a infant born the week of the January 12, 2010 earthquake in Haiti. For those who may not know, Mark Stuart and Will McGinnis (members of Know Hope Collective) started the Hands and Feet Project in 2004 along with other members of Audio Adrenaline, their former band. More information on the Hands and Feet Project can be found here.  And now for the video- it is truly amazing.




Build Us Back
We've been crumbled, we've been crushed
City walls have turned to dust
Broken hands and blistered feet
We walk for miles to find relief

When the thief takes, when our hopes cave
You build us back
You build us back

When the earth shakes, when the world breaks
You build us back
You build us back

We are scared, we are poor
All our safety nets are torn
We've been humbled to our knees
From these ruins, we believe

When the thief takes, when our hopes cave
You build us back
You build us back

When the earth shakes, when the world breaks
You build us back
You build us back


Redeemer, redeem us
Restorer, restore us
Oh build us back
Though the mountains be shaken, the hills be removed
Your unfailing love remains
After all that's been taken, Your promise, still sacred
You build us back with precious stones

When the thief takes, when our hopes cave
You build us back
You build us back

When the earth shakes, when the world breaks
You build us back
You build us back
