Songs From My Shelf – All I Need

Broken blackened charred by the fire from within
Bended over crushed by this heavy burden
I lift my eyes unto the hills but all I see is dust
Every righteous deed a rag every purity just lust
How can I reach the sky
Stooped so low when you’re so high

And I’m weak and I’m scared and I’m torn
Trying to climb to your throne
But you reached down from heaven
You made me one of your own
And I work and I work and I try to have more faith
But all I need is grace

You’ve made my pathways level still I stumble over stones
My enemies oppress me they’ve broken all of my bones
My own spirit is against me my shadow’s torn in two
Your strength is in my weakness, all I need is you
How can I reach the sky
Stooped so low when you’re so high

Hallelujah, hallelujah

And the most beautiful jewels in the night
Can only be seen in the dark
We have this treasure in jars of clay
In the world where we shine like stars, like stars
