The Lord of My Life

A Song by Edward Waters
(Copyright © December 1990)

You are the One who is worthy of praise,[1]
May You loosen my tongue[2] and be seen in my ways.[3]
I live in Your love[4] and I'm saved by Your grace,[5]
For You are the Lord of my life.[6]

You are the light through the darkness to me:[7]
When my heart is in gloom and no hope I can see,[8]
You burst through the shadows[9] and set my soul free,[10]
For You are the Lord of my life.

You are the One who sits on heaven's throne,[11]
Yet You took up my cross and You died there alone[12]
My debt to erase,[13] for my sin to atone.[14]
Praise to You, Lord of my life!

You were the One behind the tomb's stone wall,
But death could not long hold the Lord of All.[15]
You are risen victorious and I heed Your call;
You are the Lord of my life!

I know that You hear me when I pray.[16]
Your word and Your wisdom light my way.[17]
Perfect in love, You cast out my every fear.[18]
Your Spirit [within] reminds me You are [always] near.[19]

You are the strength by which the race is won,[20]
And Yours is the glory for which it's run.[21]
Whate'er life brings, until my days are done
You are the Lord of my life.

You are my God, my Father, Holy King;
I abide beneath the shelter of Your wing.[22]
And I look to the day I in Your presence sing
Praise to You, Lord of my life![23]

O praise to You, Lord of my life!
You are the Lord of my life!
Blessed Father, You are the Lord of my life!
Christ Jesus, You are the Lord of my life!
Spirit of Holiness, You are the Lord of my life!
Praise to You, Lord of my life!
You are the Lord of my life!
