I know your majesty
As well as your power
And there's no way to deny
That your love pours down like a rainshower
I see your blessing every day
Though I don't always appreciate them as I should
But the fact that you give them to us
Tells me that I always could
Dear God
You are my everything
Without you I would be alone
Without you I wouldn't be anything
So, it's for this reason I send up a prayer
For my family and friends
Keep them safe every day
When their lives seem to be in shreds
God, it's not enough for me to pray
For all the lost and helpless
Send me out every day
Lord, for you I want to be selfless
There are people in the world
Trying to stay afloat
But they're drowning in this world of sin
Help me to guide them with your grace and hope
Let me be your hands
Where you physically can't reach
Let me be your voice
Where you physically can't speak
Send me up the mountains
Or across the seas
Use me as you will
This is my prayer, please
Dear God
Let my light shine
Let me be true
And let me be kind
Maybe I can make a difference
And bring just one person ashore
From this deep ocean of sin
May I share your grace more and more
