Verse 1:
             E
This is the dream:
                   A
A dream for the world to see You,
                   C♯m
A dream for the world to know You,
                A
To love Your name.
          E
Lift up a shout,
           A
Lift up a cry to shake the ground,
                C♯m
Shout and the walls are coming down;
              A
Yeah, we're running after You.
Chorus:
          E
Like a rolling stone, like a runaway train,
No turning back, no more yesterdays.
   A
My heart is free, no chains on me;
           E
God, You raise me up, up from the grave.
With the cross before I'm on my way,
   A                              E   A   E
My heart is free, no chains on me.   [Last time]
Verse 2:
              E
Now is the time,
                 A
Now is the time for freedom;
              C♯m
Abandoned by cold religion,
              A
My heart on fire.
                E
We hear the sound,
                A
The sound of revival coming,
                   C♯m
The sound of Your people rising;
              A
Yeah, we're running after You.
Mid section:
E
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. [x2]
The walls are coming down, the walls are coming down. [x2]
The walls are coming down, the walls are coming down.

THIS IS THE DREAM
A dream for the world to see You
A dream for the world to know You
To love Your name
Lift up a shout
Lift up a cry to shake the ground
Shout and the walls are coming down
Yeah, we're running after You

Like a rolling stone
Like a runaway train
No turning back
No more yesterdays
My heart is free
No chains on me
God, You raise me up
Up from the grave
With the cross before
I'm on my way
My heart is free
No chains on me


Now is the time
Now is the time for freedom
Abandoned by cold religion
My heart on fire
We hear the sound
The sound of revival coming
The sound of Your people rising
Yeah, we're running after You

The walls are coming down
