I have a list of what I think I need
And another of what I want
You invite me into your house and cover me with Grace
You ask me to give it all and put it in your hands
And while I wait you break down walls I thought would never fall
Between who I am and your Love
Between what I see and your Truth
Between what I know and your Grace
Between my disappointment and your Hope
I’m tired of this homeless wandering and
I’m ready to come homeland take my place in your Family
And when the road leads through a dark forest of anger and pain
You never shy away
You walk with me all the way
And when I start to see the sun again
I realize that it was your Love
That lifted me out of the depths.
And now I know your love is deeper than my lowest despair
And I had to understand such sorrow to be baffled by this Peace.
I’m so grateful for your tangible Grace
Trust takes experience and a leap of Faith
You can only Trust as much as you know you are Loved
So I put all my hope and dreams firmly in your hands.
You are a Good Father who understands.
And as I look a little closer
I know this now more than ever
Your love carries my pain
And I came from your hands.
So let gratitude pave the way
I’ll sing a song of thanks
Because even now I know you will take care of me
Like you always have.
Thank you God for showing me how deeply you love me
For settling the questions of my worth
For never giving up on me
For the Peace I feel
For the Grace on me
For the Future you’ve planned
And hold in your hand
Help me to Live in the five minutes I have
And keep speaking my name
Make my home in you and yours in me
