about

He's always trying to help us become what in reality we also want to be; sometimes that means our yielding on some points or accepting some counsel or constructive criticism. But if we can do that, then we can truly become something useful & find ultimate happiness, & feel fulfilled all at the same time—and shine in the unique manner He created us to shine.

lyrics

I do want to be all You want me to be,
I do want to grow as You’ve shown me I must;
I want to become all You’re dreaming I’ll be,
So I guess that I’ll just have to trust You.
[repeat]

I know it’s not in me,
And I could never be
A tenth part of all that You’re asking of me;
I’m too full of weakness,
But then again You know
And just call me to follow wherever You go.

[Repeat Chorus]

You’ve opened up a way,
And asked me to obey:
Start in the direction You’re showing today--
Head into the future, You’ll do the big part:
Make me a new creature,
Give me a new heart;

[Solo]

I do want to be all You want me to be,
I do want to grow as You’ve shown me I must;
I want to become all You’re dreaming I’ll be,
So I guess that I’ll just have to trust You.
Yes, I guess that I’ll just have to trust You
And I know that’s it’s best just to trust You.
