you alone sacrificed EVERYTHING
that I could have everything I need.
you alone are the “something” to believe in
for you alone are my EVERYTHING.
you alone knows what it means to lose everything
as you hung on the cross crying out,
“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?“
you alone are deserving of everything I am
for you alone are worthy of everything.
this country sets up idols on lofty thrones,
not knowing from whence comes true hope.
Oh Lord Jesus,
help me to speak into such madness and foolishness,
not to put people down but to raise them up;
not that I can boast but that You are glorified.
you are my everything.
