God above everything

Song & Lyrics…

 

HOW OFTEN LORD, HAVE I

GIVEN YOU JUST SCRAPS OF TIME

HALFHEARTEDLY I’VE OFFERED HOLLOW PRAISE TO YOU

THOUGHT I HAD SO MUCH TO DO, AND DESIRES TO PURSUE

IN MY SELFISHNESS I JUST, DRIFTED AWAY

 

WHEN PRIORITIES UNRAVEL

THE IMPOSSIBLE CAN HAPPEN

THE FAMILY WE DEARLY LOVE, GETS PUSHED ASIDE

WHILE I SOUGHT YOU ONCE AGAIN

I REMEMBERED WHEN WE MET

WHEN WORSHIPPING YOU LORD WAS ALL MY HEART’S DELIGHT

 

I WORSHIP YOU, LET ME RUN HOME

INTO YOUR WAITING ARMS AGAIN AND START ALL OVER

TO CHERISH YOUR HEART, MORE THAN MY OWN

NEVER LET GO, OF THE BOND BETWEEN US BOTH

NOTHING JUSTIFIES SUCH A SELFISH LIFE

I WILL NEVER BE FULFILLED

IF I CAN’T HAVE YOU INSIDE OF ME

 

COME MY LORD, TAKE YOUR THRONE

AS FIRST IN ALL MY LIFE

NOTHING IN THIS WORLD MEANS MORE THAN TO SEEK YOU

ABOVE EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE

 

I DON’T WANT TO CARRY PRIDE

ALL MY LIFE UNTIL I DIE

FINDING PLEASURE IN THE WORLD

YET BARELY KNOWING YOU

I WANT THE HEAVENS TO BE FILLED

WITH THE FRAGRANCE OF MY PRAISE

TO SHOW THE WORLD THE MAJESTY OF WHO YOU ARE

 

I’LL CREATE WITHIN MY HOUSE

A SPECIAL ROOM FOR JUST US TWO

AND ALL MY OTHER NEEDS WILL

HAVE TO WAIT FOR YOU

I JUST WANT TO WORSHIP YOU

WORSHIP YOU WITH ALL I HAVE

AND NEVER MORE DISGRACE YOU LORD

WITH SCRAPS YOU DON’T DESERVE
