John Mark McMillan - Skeleton Bones Lyrics




Peel back our ribs again
And stand inside of our chest
We just want to love you
We just want to love you yeah

Peel back the veil of time
Let us see you with
Our naked eyes
We just want to love you
We just want to love you yeah

Skeleton bones
Stand at the sound
Of eternity
On the lips of the found
Yeah and grave stones roll
To the rhythm
Of the sound of you
Skeleton bones
Stand at the sound
Of eternity
On the lips of the found
Yeah so separate those doors
And let the sun
Of resurrection in

Oh let us adore
The son of glory dressed in love
Open up your gates before him
Crown him
Stand him up

We want your blood to flow inside
Our body and
We want your wind
Inside our lungs
We just want to love you
We just want to love you yeah

Skeleton bones
Stand at the sound
Of eternity
On the lips of the found
Yeah and grave stones roll
To the rhythm
Of the sound of you

Skeleton bones
Stand at the sound
Of eternity
On the lips of the found
Yeah so separate those doors
And let the sun
Of resurrection in

Oh let us adore the son of glory
Dressed in love
Open up your gates before him
Crown him
Stand him up

Everything that breathes
Everything that breathes yeah
Everything that breathes

  1. low-key_ koffe

    I am in love with this band. The singer is of the unknown.. to many here and known to our Father Abba Elohim … One band I have discovered and will follow. ❤ praise our God Jesus Christ....

  2. Josh Wynn

    This song will always make me feel a way that no other song does.

  3. John Doe

    The goofy guy in the black shirt literally did nothing the entire time.

  4. Casper van Noppen

    4:51: guy in the background is having his own little groove

    Joshua Warrior

    Lol so funny...

  5. Grace Castaneda

    AMAZING SONG!!! AMAZING VOICES!!!! AND ESPECIALLY AMAZING WONDERFUL HIGH NOTE SINGING FOR THE BANJO MAN!!!!!!XXXDDD

  6. Greg Johnson

    Guys- I just discovered you, and it is so refreshing and encouraging to hear music from the heart. Would like to connect with you. see my FB page at greg johnson and friends for our new music.

  7. Roon Mc

    Jude is awesome!

  8. The. ERIN.

    All this song needs to make the hillbilly sound complete, is a washboard, jugs, spoons and some bales of hay 🤣

  9. Angie McKee

    This is the weirdest worship song I have ever heard. Just sayin’...

    Atrus

    Agreed, I don't consider this worship. It's a concert...

    Rebecca Ashton

    it's based on Ezekiel 37 and the Valley of Dry Bones....

  10. Marcus Cutright

    Am I the only one that thinks these lyrics are very strange, I don't get it?

    VeritasVideo

    It's about the Foundational Doctrine of Christ , "The Resurrection from the Dead." The greatest event ever. The Head of man was already raised. Now the body awaits to be joined in like manner. From dishonor to honor, from weakness to strength. Lots of Christians use the word "rapture" but that is somewhat misleading because there is no doctrine on the rapture but there is a Doctrine on the Resurrection (1 Corinthians 15). The writer of this song, John Mark McMillan is keenly aware of this truth and reality of a Bodily Resurrection. Peace
