      About "Burn The Ships"

      Lyrics for Steven Curtis Chapman - "Burn The Ships"

      In the spring of 1519 a Spanish fleet set sail
      Cortez told his sailors this mission must not fail
      On the eastern shore of Mexico they landed with great dreams
      But the hardships of the new world make them restless and weak

      Quietly they whispered, "Let's sail back to the life we knew"
      But the one who led them there was saying

      "Burn the ships we're here to stay
      There's no way we could go back
      Now that we've come this far by faith
      Burn the ships we've passed the point of no return
      Our life is here so let the ships burn and burn"

      In the spring of new beginnings a searching heart set sail
      Looking for a new life and a love that would not fail
      On the shores of grace and mercy we landed with great joy
      But an enemy was waiting to steal, kill, and destroy

      Quietly he whispers, "Go back to the life you know"
      But the one who led us here is saying

      "Burn the ships we're here to stay
      There's no way we could go back
      Now that we've come this far by faith
      Burn the ships we've passed the point of no return
      Our life is here so let the ships burn and burn"

      Nobody said it would be easy
      But the one who brought us here
      Is never gonna leave us alone

      Never gonna leave, never gonna leave
      Never gonna leave, never gonna leave
      Never gonna leave

      Burn the ships we're here to stay
      There's no way we could go back
      Now that we've come this far by faith
      Burn the ships we've passed the point of no return
      Our life is here so let the ships burn

      Burn the ships we're here to stay
      There's no way we could go back
      Now that we've come this far by faith
      Burn the ships we've passed the point of no return
      Our life is here so let the ships burn, so let the ships burn
      Let them burn, let the ships burn
