Pursue

I hide in Your presence,
in the safety of Your will.
I patiently pursue it,
and my spirit is steady.
In You, my spirit is still.

You have won me over,
with the power of Your love.
I relish in its triumph,
and my heart is made complete.
In You, my heart fills with awe.

Yet I do not deserve
all Your mercy and Your grace.
I surrender to it all,
and my life is fully yours.
In You, my life takes it's place.

Yours

O Lord, I am Yours
like never before.

Walls are broken.
Through You I am free.
A heart shattered.
Through You I am new.

O Lord, I am Yours
like never before.

Eyes opened.
Through You I see.
Ears listening.
Through You I hear.

O Lord, I am Yours
like never before.

My spirit has taken flight.
It's sold out entirely to You.
My life is taken captive.
It's surrendered completely to You.

O Lord, I am Yours
like never before.

My soul rejoices.
It's filled with Your joy.
I am left breathless
by Your perfect love.

O Lord, I am Yours
like never before.

The Wind

I see the wind.
Do I sink or swim?
I see the wind.
Do I run and hide?
I see the wind.
Do I fall or stand?
I see the wind.
Do I doubt and die?
I see the wind.

Do I look to myself?
Do I look to Him?

He sees the wind.
He asks me to swim.
He sees the wind.
He asks me to stay in sight.
He sees the wind.
He asks me to stand.
He sees the wind.
He asks me to stay alive.
He sees the wind. 

I see the wind.
I look to Him.

He sees the wind.
And the wind dies.
