I was updating my ID3 data on my mp3 collection, and had a great time going through all of my old CCM (Contemporary Christian Music) that I haven’t listened to for almost 20 years.

I came upon Susan Ashton’s debut album, which was awesome, especially this song, which is written to atheists. ¬†Enjoy the lyrics – it’s also beautifully arranged and sung.

You’ve heard the stories

You’ve read the message in the pages

You consider crucifixion: is it fact or fiction for the ages

Did He really appear

Like they say that He did

Does it conquer the fear

Did He die so that we could live

You’d like to think that it’s true.

Oh, But you want to hold the intangible

To fashion the darkness into familiar shape

To see with your eyes

To know in your mind

Oh ye of so little faith

Only the heart, can hold the intangible.

There is a chamber

In the soul of the believer

It holds reason in defiance

The demanding hand of science may not enter.

But let’s just suppose how it would be

To trade all you know

For one ounce of true belief

Then you’d learn the peace of that place.

Oh, But you want to hold the intangible

To fashion the darkness into familiar shape

To see with your eyes

To know in your mind

Oh ye of so little faith

Only the heart, can hold the intangible.

But let’s just suppose how it would be

To trade all you know

For one ounce of true belief

Then you’d learn the peace of that place.

Oh, But you want to hold the intangible

To fashion the darkness into familiar shape

To see with your eyes

To know in your mind

Oh ye of so little faith

Only the heart, can hold the intangible.

You want to hold the intangible.

Oh, you want to hold the intangible…
