Lyrics & notes

28 May 1980

I’ve spent my whole life
running away from pain
thinking it wasn’t your will
always asking questions
demanding you explain
never hearing you say,
“Be still.”

let it be done to me
according to your word
till your love flows through me
into this dying world
can’t shut my eyes to all I’ve seen
deny what I have heard
let it be done to me
according to your word

Lord, I know you never
turned away from pain
instead you took it face to face
you won the victory
even through the...

here I am
crying again
my heart is breaking in two
here I stand
my love in my hand
I'm ready to give it to you

somehow I'm always expecting too much
and right now I long for your healing touch

here am I
just one lonely guy
that don't wanna hear no more lies
here I am
and here I will stay
please teach me to rest in your ways

(repeat chorus)

here I stand
my love in my hand
I'm ready to give it to you

just let me be what you want me to be
and from all of myself, Lord, please set me free

here I am...

just to think about You, Lord
makes me feel like singing
and just to think that You still care
it makes me feel like bringing
all my love to You
and I do
just to know a love so true

just to think how You have made
this empty life worth living
and just to know that You'll be there
it makes me feel like giving
my whole life to You
and I do
makes the sky seem so blue
just to think about You, Lord

I will never understand the reason for Your love
or the reason why You think that I'm worth thinking of
maybe that's what makes...

let go
why is it so hard just to let go
let me give you all the good things that I’ve planned
do you believe that I love you?
I know, I know all your dreams
but do you know I’ve got some dreams for you
can you trust me to make them come true
they’re good dreams
no matter how empty they may seem
but you can’t see beyond your loneliness
no, I don’t go back on my promises
don’t you remember
you belong to me

trust me, please
I just want to make you happy
don’t hang on to your love
it...

2 Sep 1976

why do we pretend to hold Your life
in forms that just can't bend?
we just maintain
how can we confine the good, good news
to names on dotted lines?
it's such a strain
if we could only take down
all the umbrellas we have built
we could receive His latter rain now

Jesus, I am thirsty for new wine
I have been so dry for such a long time
long, long time
only let me bear the fruit of Your vine
then lead me to Your winepress
and drink me
while I drink You

how can we describe Your sweet, holy fire
in words so cold we strive...
