  • Take my strength, take my pride,
    Take my selfishness away
    Take my rights, take ambition,
    Capture me, make me a slave

    Break my walls, break my bones,
    Break my hardened heat
    Rip my rule, rip my will,
    Rip independency apart

    Breathe Your life,
    Breathe Your love,
    Breathe You breath and I'm sustained
    Take my hate, take my hurt,
    Express healing to my pain

    Take my flesh in all its arrogance, my stability away
    Take my life, bring fire, til only You remain

    Chorus:
    Laid out on my face
    My tongue hanging out to taste
    Of You and Your death
    And to know Your name

    Accept my gifts, take my crowns,
    I spread them at your feet
    When I bleed, I bleed with joy as I taste Your suffering
    Flood life, flood peace, speak acceptance to my shame
    Allow to kneel, allow to praise,
    Give the right to speak Your name

    (chorus) Writer/s: JOHN LANDRUM COOPER, KORENE M COOPER
