Christ In Me

Album: I Will Follow (2015)
  • In this obsession with
    The things this world says make us happy
    Can't see the slaves we are
    In all the searching all the grasping
    Like we deserve much more
    Than all these blessing we're holding
    So now I'm running free
    Into an ocean of mercy unending

    So come and empty me
    So that it's you I breathe
    I want my life to be
    Only Christ in me
    So I will fix my eyes
    'Cause you're my source of life
    I need the world to see
    That it's Christ in me
    That it's Christ in me

    Done with what holds me down
    The things I once was chasing after
    Throw off these heavy chains
    That I have let become my master
    So now I'm running free
    Into an ocean of mercy unending

    So come and empty me
    So that it's you I breathe
    I want my life to be
    Only Christ in me
    So I will fix my eyes
    'Cause you're my source of life
    I need the world to see
    That it's Christ in me
    That it's Christ in me

    In this obsession with
    The things this world says make us happy
    Can't see the slaves we are
    In all the searching all the grasping

    So come and empty me
    So that it's you I breathe
    I want my life to be
    Only Christ in me
    So I will fix my eyes
    'Cause you're my source of life
    I need the world to see
    Only Christ in me
    Only Christ in me
    Only Christ in me
