Love Has Laid Hold Of Me

Standard

Tonight, I am basking in the faithful and ever-constant love of my Jesus. I am completely satisfied in His life-giving presence. This is where I find all of me. This is where I am meant to be. All that is within me is relaxed and at peace when I let myself sit at the feet of my Father and gaze at His beauty, when I simply take the time to take in all that He is. I am overwhelmed at His love. The resounding echo of my heart, and the song that is on my lips:

You can’t make somebody love you
God won’t force a heart to move
He so values our decision
The human heart he won’t abuse

You can’t make somebody love you
God won’t force a heart to move
He so values our decision
The human heart he won’t abuse

But still I say that
Love has laid hold of me
And I can’t let go
Love has laid hold of me
And I can’t let go

I am all Yours tonight, it’s just You and me. I will embrace sweet surrender, I will let go of all of me. You are all I want, all I need, all I thirst for, all I seek.

At Your Feet

Standard

I wish I could stay here forever

And not have to face the rain falling outside

But if I want things to change

There’s no way that I can stay dry

 

The first tear that falls

Is the beginning of sweet release

I’ve broken all the floodgates

I’m outpouring all of me

I’ve been locked inside this prison

I’ve built around myself

I’ll be the last to admit it

But God I need your help

I’m broken, at Your feet

At Your feet, I am yours

 

There’s a melody deep down in my soul

I didn’t know what is was cause it’d been so long

Breathe your breath of life, whisper words to me

Cause I want to sing along

 

At Your feet, I gaze at Your beauty

At Your feet, I come alive again

At Your feet, I know only you are worthy

At Your feet, is where I never should have left

Truth Is

Standard

You keep saying something’s wrong

Like I’m hiding something inside,

Like there’s a storm that’s raging strong,

 Behind my hazel eyes,

And I don’t want to let you know your right

Cause you’re everything I’ve dreamed of,

Everything and more,

And to let you know what’s on my mind,

Might be my final words,

Cause baby I’ve got so good at lying,

No one has seen right through me like you did, baby

 

 

Truth is, I’d love to love you,

But I’m terrified,

Truth is, I’d love to hold you,

But I’d have to leave you in the night,

Cause this heart is restless from a bruised and broken past,

And to let down my guard would be the hardest thing I ever did,

Right now I don’t think I can

Baby, that’s what the truth is

 

 

I know you say you’re different,

I want to trust you so bad it hurts,

I see it in your actions

And I hear it in your words,

I don’t know why it’s so hard to believe

Cause you’ve never put me down,

No you’ve always built me up,

But I’m clinging to old familiar lies

Because they’re all I’ve ever known

And it’s a comfortable place to be,

Even though you’re my everything

 

 

Maybe someday, maybe someday,

I can love you with all that I have

But I won’t let you give your all

While I’m holding back
