Empty Me of Me

Sunday, December 07, 2008

One of my new favorite songs ... by Chris Sligh



I've had just enough of the spotlight
when it burns bright
to see how it gets in the blood.
And I've tasted my share
of the sweet life
and the wild ride
and found a little is not quite enough.

I know how I can stray
and how fast my heart could change.

Empty me
of the selfishness inside,
every vain ambition
and the poison of my pride
and any foolish thing my heart holds to,
Lord empty me of me
so I can be
filled with You.

I've seen just enough of the quick buys
of the best lies
to know how prodigals can be drawn away.

I know how I can stray
and how fast my heart could change.
Empty me
of the selfishness inside,
every vain ambition
and the poison of my pride
and any foolish thing my heart holds to,
Lord empty me of me
so I can be
filled with You.

Cuz everything is a lesser thing
compared to You
compared to You.
Cuz everything is a lesser thing
compared to You,
so I surrender all.

Empty me
of the selfishness inside,
every vain ambition
and the poison of my pride.

Empty me
of the selfishness inside,
every vain ambition
and the poison of my pride
and any foolish thing my heart holds to,
Lord empty me of me
so I can be
Lord empty me of me
so I can be
filled with You
filled with You
empty me.
