You Lift Me Up - AMP (Glory Songs)
You delivered my soul from condemnation, keep me from stumbling (Psalm 56:13)
In the toughest of times, keeping me in line,
through the trials and the oppositional sufferings
Losing everything I ever worked for, thinking life is over, so I turned to You
Then You showed me that losing everything to gain Christ
is the pinnacle of life, eternal life is knowing You
In the midst of my suffering, there You are standing close never remaining afar
Giving me child-like faith, I know You’ll catch me Father if I let go of the bars
There is no other like You, there is no other that’s true
Faithful with never-ending compassionate lovingkindness in everything that You do!
Hosanna, Hosanna, yes, You are mighty to save
Hosanna, Hosanna, Hallelujah, You conquered the grave!
My Savior, You lift me up when my heavy heart is weary
My Redeemer, Your love never fails and is always constantly near me!
My Shelter and my refuge, the One who knows my heart
For the joy set before You, our salvation, You endured the cross (Hebrews 12:2)
So I consider all my sufferings at the present time
Unworthy to be compared with the glory that will be revealed to us! (Rom. 8:18)
Hook - Sam Ock:
You lift me up Lord Jesus, lift me on eagle’s wings
You lift me up Lord Jesus, lifting my heart to sing
You lift me up Lord Jesus, You are my everything
Jesus, apart from You, I can’t do anything
O Lord, You’re incredibly patient; Your love, it overwhelms.
Though I mess up every single day you hold me close;
in Your house, I choose to dwell.
Sometimes my ways are crooked, misguided, or straight up wrong.
Often I put up a front, for my friends, that I am strong.
I don’t wanna show my weakness;
I gotta have it all together when I’m talking bout Jesus.
I must be perfect; Who wants to listen to a guy who’s flawed and conceited?
Look at your other brothers with solid discourse and are never flustered;
you need to brush up on your speech, it’s lacking luster.
My best was never good enough; compared to other saints I didn’t measure up.
I failed again. Man, I feel like giving up.
Such an empty life; God, I need Your holy touch.
My heart said I didn’t need your mercy, but you called my bluff.
You saw right through me; I’m just a little kid trying to act all tough.
My calloused heart turned fleshy; the walls are crumbling down.
I don’t need to look a certain way; I don’t gotta have a certain style.
I’ve regained my vision and my sin has been exposed.
God, thank you for setting me straight back on this narrow road.
