to be human

So if there’s anything I’ve learned from this journey I am on
Simple truths will keep you going, simple love will keep you strong
‘Cause there are questions without answers and flames that never die
And heartaches we go through are often blessings in disguise
So thank you, Lord, oh thank you, Lord
And, how could I ask for more?

Surely goodness and mercy
Follow me forever
Good shepherd
You have led me through the fire
Though the water

Surely goodness and mercy
Follow me forever
Good shepherd
You have led me through the fire
Through the water

And I will not fight
The fire that refines my own
Oh and I will not despise
The time it takes for love to abide in me

Surely these boundaries are forming beauty within me
Though painful when I’m dreadful
It’s so worth it to look like you

And I will not fight
The fire that refines my own
And I will not despise
The time it takes for love to abide in me

Who am I to lead myself
When I’ve come to know that you’re already leading me

Who am I to lead myself

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art;
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

Be Thou my battle Shield, Sword for the fight;
Be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight;
Thou my soul’s Shelter, Thou my high Tow’r:
Raise Thou me heav’nward, O Pow’r of my pow’r.

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

High King of Heaven, my victory won,
May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heav’n’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whate’er befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.
