All For Me

I have found that I am so self-absorbed
In what is wrong with me,
And I think that you can do better than this

But over and over you say
That I am yours

And over and over you stay…

I have felt the warmth of your burning love
And still I’ve turned away
Again and again I betray

But over and over you say
That I am yours
And over and over you stay… with me

And all I can say is that you love me
All that I know is that it’s true
You gave yourself to me
Before, I even knew you

I confess that I’ve wanted more of you
And though I can’t excuse the man I seem to be sometimes

But over and over you say
That I am yours
And over and over you stay… with me

And all I can say is that you love me
All that I know is that it’s true
You gave yourself to me
Before, I even knew you

Jesus, Master, Author of salvation
Friend and Comforter, redeemer of the nations
Lion of Judah, your call still makes me sing
Because you, you are my king.

And all I can say is that you love me
All that I know is that it’s true
You gave yourself to me
Before, I even knew you

Yes I must confess that I adore you
You are the very thing I need
And I cannot repay the breath of live you gave me..
All you’ve given me
All you’ve given me

I wrote this song for a specific event, which is rare for me to do. Usually, I don’t consider such works “mine” in the sense that I have a desire to share them. However, the song is still very much about my perspective on Christ, and the characters here are very much myself, and Him.  

The idea of this song is to explore the insanity inside myself at times. I realize that Christ has done much positive things in my life, but I am often set against him despite that, and on top of it, I become terribly obsessed with what I’m getting out of the whole deal. It’s a selfish way to live with anyone you love, let alone God.
