I want no other…

December 12, 2008

In You alone.
In You alone.
There is no other hiding place.
I have no safety, I have no home.
In You alone is peace. In You alone is rest.
There is no safe place. In You alone I rest.

I’ve sought my place, I’ve tried it all, I’ve wandered all around.
There is no rest, there is no peace, except in Your loving arms.
I want no other, All have failed me. There is no one but You.

Please, Father, hide me. Please, Father, set me in Your tower.
Wrap Your arms around me, cocoon me in Your love.
There is no place, there’s nowhere, there’s no hope, outside of Your arms.

I am Yours, I want no other, I am Yours. Hold me tight.
I am Yours, I want no other, I am Yours, Hold me tight.
Please Abba, I want no other, I am Yours. Hold me tight.

In you I trust, in You I rest, I have no peace but thine.
My eyes have failed, my hands have failed, my mind is good for naught.
My friends have gone, my family seeks my life, no man stands firm.
But in You I trust, in You I rest, please hold me tight.

Please Father, please hold my hand.
Please rub my head and tell me that it will all be OK.
Please Abba, please draw me close.
Please heal my heart and fill my cup full of You.
Please Lord, please hug me tight,
Please put it all back the way You wanted it all along.

Whatever it takes, whatever it costs, wash me clean,
Purge me, cleanse me, purify my heart.
I am dark with mud and dirt and blood.
I’m a man of unclean lips amongst an unclean people.
Touch a coal from Your altar to my tongue,
That I may speak only Your pure Truth
And sing only your praises with all my heart.
Have Your way with me and cleanse this vessel.

I am Yours, I want no other, I am Yours hold me tight.
I am Yours, I want no other, I am Yours, Hold me tight.
Please Abba, I want no other, I am Yours, hold me tight.

    Do it Lord!!!
    Wholeheartedness!!!!
    Hey Wes-thanks for the mp3’s and the notes. Powerful realities are emerging in my thoughts through them.
    God continue to use these that have set themselves apart to be emptied of themselves so as to receive from You alone-a message that they can embody and be released to proclaim.
    XOXO-Mom
