Here I go again

Father, hear my prayer:  I need the perfect words.
Words that he will hear and know they’re straight from You.
I don’t know what to say;  I only know it hurts
to see my only friend slowly fade away…

So maybe this time I’ll speak the words of Life with Your fire in my eyes.
But that old familiar fear is tearing at my words:  What am I so afraid of?

‘Cause here I go again – talking about the rain
and mulling over things that won’t live past today
And as I dance around the Truth, time is not his friend,
This might be my last chance to tell him that You love him,
But here I go again, here I go again

Lord, You love him so, You gave Your only Son
If he will just believe; he will never die!
But how then will he know what he has never heard,
Lord he has never seen mirrored in my life?

So maybe this time I’ll speak the words of Life with Your fire in my eyes.
But that old familiar fear is tearing at my words:  What am I so afraid of?

All for You

I wanna sing like I’m driving in the car all by myself
I wanna dance like I just won the lottery
I wanna lift my hands and spin around
I wanna throw my head back and shout
Like a prisoner who’s just found out he’s free

I will give my everything
I’ll be a fool for You
Because I am in love with You

I wanna sing and shout
I wanna dance around
I wanna forget who I used to be
And embrace Your truth

So when I sing and shout
Or when I dance around
When I lay my pride down
It’s all for You, it’s all for You

I wanna live learning how to make my life a sacrifice
I wanna die to find my true identity
I wanna answer at Your beckon call
Wanna do my best and give my all
I wanna hold on to You and let go of me

So let me give my everything
I’ll be a fool for You
Because I am in love with You

Chorus

With sweet success already gained
Self righteousness is not my aim
I’m raised from death into Your life, so free

Not on my own but by Your grace
I’m gazing long into Your face
And I can’t keep this passion bottled up inside of me

I wanna sing and shout
I wanna dance around
I wanna forget who I used to be
And embrace Your truth

So when I sing and shout
Or when I dance around
When I lay my pride down
It’s all for You
