This song popped up on my pandora station this morning. I was obsessed over this Starfield album for a bit and it was nice to be reminded of why. These are beautiful lyrics and really reflect where God has been bringing my heart over the past couple of weeks. I’ve put in Scripture where the writer refers to it (by my own opinion)–it’s italicized at the end of the line. I probably missed some.

You thought of us before the world began to breathe
And you knew our names before we came to be
You saw the very day we’d fall away from you
And how desperately we need to be redeemed  [Psalm 139]

Lord Jesus come lead us [John 10:4]
We’re desperate for your touch

Oh Great and Mighty One, with one desire we come
That you would reign, that you would reign in us
We’re offering up our lives, a living sacrifice [Romans 12:1]
That you would reign, that you would reign in us

Spirit of the Living God fall fresh again
Come search our hearts and purify our lives [Psalm 139]
We need your perfect love
We need your discipline
We’re lost unless you guide us with your light [John 8:12]

Lord Jesus come lead us [John 10:4]
We’re desperate for your touch

We cry out
For your love to refine us cry out
For your love to define us cry out
For your mercy to keep us blameless until you return [1 Thess 5:23-24]
You would reign in us

So reign, please reign in us
Come purify our hearts we need your touch
Come cleanse us like a flood and send us out
So the world may know you reign, you reign in us

It’s my prayer that my one desire before Christ would be that he would reign in me. And that Eric and I would be able to somehow teach that to Appleseed. Jesus desires to fully satisfy us and he is fully capable.
