You are all I want

I wanted no doubts
I wanted no worries
My circumstances blinded me

You wanted the Doubt
You wanted the Worry
You sought after what is dirty

When will I be all you want
The one you desire above all
Instead of your worry of being wrong

I wanted focus
I wanted discipline
It kept getting ripped away

You wanted trying
You wanted works
You sought after what was vain

When will I be all you want
The one you desire above all
Instead of toiling ever without faith

I wanted rightness
I wanted truth
Deceived by my own lies

You wanted Gossip
You wanted Lust
You sought what will never satisfy

When will I be all you want
The one you desire above all
Instead of your desire for what is not my Bride

I wanted love
I wanted hope
Everything was squandered

You wanted Thoughts
You wanted Dreams
You sought after what is perishable

When will I be all you want
The one you desire above all
Instead of your desire for what will be burned

Jesus by Your faithfulness You’re the only one
Speaking righteousness into my life
Longing for my heart to become undone

Seeking after you alone is what You desire
I can pursue all the things in the world
Yet ending in vanity to be burned by fire

Even what is ‘good’ is distracting from You
Because those things become desires
Far from the true good found only in You

I see now that you have to be all I want
Oh, Jesus you are so faithful
Reminding me ever of such love incredible
Yes, this… this is what I want

Everything now is found in You
My life simply won’t make sense
Misdirection of my life is so intense
You are my light in the darkness

You are all I want
Above everything else
No longer hope lies in vanity
This world can’t satisfy
We belong to another
By Your fruit You bring
Love joy and peace
Patience kindness and goodness
Faithfulness gentleness and self-control
Things this world by their efforts they can’t annul

You give us hope to live beyond our circumstances
Even when people we tell give us second glances
You know Your plan, one of glory
Ever writing a painfully beautiful story

You are all I want
Giving me hope beyond
My greatest dreams
And thanks to You
Life will always be about more
More than it will ever seem
