Take

Words and Music by John L. Cooper.
1998 Photon Music (BMI). All Rights Reserved.

 

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)
