Worship Lyrics

Your Love Awakens Me

There were walls between us
And by the cross you came and broke them down
You broke them down
And there were chains around us
By Your grace we are no longer bound
No longer bound

You called me out of the grave
You called me into the light
You called my name and then my heart came alive

Your love is greater
Your love is stronger
Your love awakens, awakens, awakens me
Your love is greater
Your love is stronger
Your love awakens, awakens, awakens me

Feel the darkness shaking
All the dead are coming back to life
Back to life
Hear the song awaken
All creation singing we’re alive
‘Cause You’re alive

And what a love we’ve found
Death can’t hold us down
We’ll shout it out, 
We’re alive, ’cause you’re alive

Reckless Love

Before I spoke a word, You were singing over me
You have been so, so good to me
Before I took a breath, You breathed Your life in me
You have been so, so kind to me

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it, and I don’t deserve it, still, You give Yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God, yeah

When I was Your foe, still Your love fought for me
You have been so, so good to me
When I felt no worth, You paid it all for me
You have been so, so kind to me

There’s no shadow You won’t light up
Mountain You won’t climb up
Coming after me
There’s no wall You won’t kick down
Lie You won’t tear down
Coming after me

Take My Life

Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee
Take my moments and my days
Let them flow in ceaseless praise
Take my hands and let them move
A the impulse of Thy love
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee

Take my voice and let me sing
Always, only for my King
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee
Take my silver and my gold
Not a might would I withhold
Take my intellect and use
Every power as You choose

Here am I, all of me
Take my life, it’s all for Thee

Take my will and make it Thine
It shall be no longer mine
Take my heart, it is Thine own
It shall be Thy royal throne
Take my love, my Lord I pour
At Your feet its treasure store
Take myself and I will be
ever, only, all for Thee

Here am I, all of me
Take my life, it’s all for Thee (x4)

Take myself and I will be
ever, only, all for Thee
