More I See

this song came from the deep frustration of coming face to face with my inability to do anything good. i couldn’t even be loving to people i loved–not even the simple principles was i capable of employing. but such a place of utter weakness is at the same time the place of greatest hope. Paul said that he was content in his weakness, for he understood the plan of God to display His power and grace through a vessel humble enough to confess his need.

the more i see of You the more i need You
to be like You is impossible for me
as i know more of Your holy calling
i know that i can do nothing without You
without You
i need You
Jesus, fill me with Your Holy Spirit

You have put this treasure within earthen vessels
that Your glory may be loudly proclaimed
and in my greatest weakness You will show Your strength
that Your grace may be loudly proclaimed

so i surrender to Your Potter’s hands
only You can make me what You have planned

treading water, boxing air
am i getting anywhere?
my best attempts are only vanity

teach me to love and to esteem
to speak the truth in humility
to know the spirit of the law, keep You as center of it all
deny desires of the flesh
to this world reckon myself dead
forsake all else and count as loss all for the treasure of the cross
