Danny Gokey, “Masterpiece”

Contemporary Christian singer Danny Gokey has released “Masterpiece,” the newest single from his latest release, “Rise.” A track about how God’s plan for us gives us the grace to go through whatever difficulties we’re experiencing in life so that our lives would reflect His work, Gokey takes his brilliant rough-edged tenor and infuses an urgency into the vocal delivery of “Masterpiece” that exceeds even the usual power he brings to his music. And when he goes into that falsetto–chills. Gorgeous.

MASTERPIECE Lyrics
Danny Gokey

[Verse 1]
Heartbreak’s a bittersweet sound, know it well
It’s ringing in my ears and I can’t understand
Why I’m not fixed by now
Begged and I pleaded, take this pain but I’m still bleeding
Heart trusts you for certain
Head says it’s not working
I’m stuck here still hurting
But you tell me

[Chorus]
You’re making a masterpiece
You shaping the soul in me
You’re moving where I can’t see
And all I am is in your hands
You’re taking me all apart
Like it was your plan from the start
To finish your work of art for all to see you’re making a masterpiece

[Verse 2]
Guess I’m your canvas
Beautiful black and blue, painted in mercy’s hue
I don’t see past this
But you see me now, who I’ll be then
There at the end, standing there as

[Chorus]
Your masterpiece
You’re shaping the soul in me
You’re moving where I can’t see
And all I am is in your hands
You’re taking me all apart
Like it was your plan from the start
To finish your work of art for all to see
You’re making a masterpiece
You’re making a masterpiece

[Bridge]
Heart trust you for certain
Head says it’s not working

[Chorus]
You’re making a masterpiece
You’re shaping the soul in me
You’re moving where I can’t see
And all I am is in your hands
You’re taking me all apart
Like it was your plan from the start
To finish your work of art for all to see you’re making a masterpiece
