Lyrics

I’ve been asleep
Head in the sand
Watching the time just ticking
Clock runs around
Days in and out
Can’t really call it living

Somewhere I let light go dark
But here’s where my new story starts

Take my life and let it be
Set on fire for all to see
Break me down, build me up again
Don’t leave me the way I’ve been
Take my heart into Your hands
Come and finish what You began
‘Til I seek Your kingdom first
‘Til I shine, shine
Like Heaven on earth
Like Heaven on earth

I wanna wake, I wanna see
All of the ways You’re moving
Show me the need
‘Cause I wanna be a part of what You’re doing

In my heart, let Kingdom come
Not my will but Yours be done

Take my life and let it be
Set on fire for all to see
Break me down, build me up again
Don’t leave me the way I’ve been
Take my heart into Your hands
Come and finish what You began
‘Til I seek Your kingdom first
‘Til I shine, shine
Like Heaven on earth
Like Heaven on earth

Help me move when I should move
Help me rest when I should rest
Help me give what I should give
All of me, nothing less
Help me speak with grace and truth
Help me fight for those who can’t
Help me love the way You love
Never holding nothing back (yeah like Heaven on earth)

Take my life and let it be
Set on fire for all to see
Break me down, build me up again
Don’t leave me the way I’ve been
Take my heart into Your hands
Come and finish what You began
‘Til I seek Your kingdom first
‘Til I shine, shine
Like Heaven on earth

Like Heaven on earth
Like Heaven on earth
Like Heaven on earth

About This Song

a few notes from Joe B., Music Director

We all want our lives to matter. Somewhere deep within we want to be used by God to do things we could never accomplish on our own. The problem is that many times we just don't know what that looks like. And really we can't until we first surrender our wants, desires and wills to Him. Chris wrote this song after a season of rest. A time Chris says was needed to refocus his life and ministry. A time of awakening and renewal. I believe this song will not only become a favorite for Lisa but also empower her to follow His leading in her own life.

"This song came from an honest cry out to God to helm me truly know Him. To move when He asks us to move, to rest when He asks me to rest. To speak and to give how He would have me speak and give. And to love like only He can love." - Chris Cleveland
