Make My Life a Prayer to You, Keith Green

Recently I was reminded of one of Keith Green’s most memorable songs. I really love the lyrics. Take a look.

————–

Make my life a prayer to you

I wanna do what you want me to

No empty words and no white lies

No token prayers no compromise

I wanna shine the light you gave

Through your Son you sent to save us

From ourselves and our despair

It comforts me to know you’re really there

Chorus

Well I wanna thank you now

For being patient with me

Oh it’s so hard to see

When my eyes are on me

I guess I’ll have to trust

And just believe what you say

Oh you’re coming again

Coming to take me away

 

I wanna die and let you give

Your life to me so I might live

And share the hope you gave to me

The love that set me free

I wanna tell the world out there

You’re not some fable or fairy tale

That I’ve made up inside my head

You’re God the Son

You’ve risen from the dead

 

 

[Chorus]

 

 

I wanna die and let you give

Your life to me so I might live

And share the hope you gave to me

I wanna share

The love that set me free
