Other voices may tell me what they think I should do,
But I know, I am convinced,
What I really need is to trust and obey You.
They may tell me to be happy I need material things,
But all that’s so hollow compared
to the joy that You bring.
So many waste so much on things that don’t last,
Never seeming to learn the valuable lessons that lie in our past.
The lusts of the flesh, the eyes, and our pride,
Will only ever leave us empty inside.
Selfishness, self-seeking, self-serving
All steal from the glory and praise that You are deserving
I choose rather the only worthy pursuit,
To seek after You, to worship You in Spirit and Truth.
What we need is You Jesus, and You alone,
To follow You only, let You lead us Home.
What we need is to see how ugly and hateful is sin,
To turn from it, and have Your Holy Spirit
No more marvellous thing could there be,
Than the King of Glory who died for me,
Who gave for me even His last breath,
Who rose again and conquered death.
How could it be that He loves me so?
I could never deserve it, this I know,
And yet He saved me, He saved my soul,
My all to Jesus truly I owe.
Jesus, Jesus, my all is for Thee,
You broke every chain, You made me free,
For all of my days I’ll trust and obey,
My wonderful Saviour, the Life the Truth,
My reason to live,
My reason to breathe.
The King of all.
The song that I sing.
The real reality,
Alive inside of me,
Broken chains, He made me free,
No words could ever say,
How He takes my breath away,
In His presence I long to stay,
My strength and peace are in Him,
All my life I live for Him,
For my heart He did so wonderfully win,
