Out of all the distractions in this world, Lord I want to be distracted by You.
Out of all the things I could gaze upon, I love to gaze upon You who makes me new.
Out of all the men I have ever seen, Lord You’re the only One I want & need.
For who could possibly win my heart? Who could ever compare?
Only You hold a position at the center of my heart that no one shall ever share.
Yes, my desire is that I shall be captivated by a man who walks in Truth…
but Lord I beg, I would rather be alone than to have someone who doesn’t look like you.
I feel the change is coming. The day when all will be revealed.
All of the promises you spoke to my heart of the man who’s identity You have concealed.
I say, Lord continue to mold me! Turn me into the woman you’ve called me to be.
Make me a wife who will add to His life, abundantly past what his eyes can see.
The cry of my heart is to love; to honor, to cherish, and to submit
But I refuse to settle, so in faith I will wait for the day that you should see fit.
Your faithfulness has taken me over, so my heart may rest in Your peace.
There’s no need to worry, in your patience I wait, for Your blessing to soon be released.
And as I sit here in solitude, I smile because I know I’m really not alone.
No matter how long I wait, I stand here in faith, lavished in love that you’ve already shown.
So to be weary is foolish alone. For abiding in You I have grown to see…
I have all that I want, and all that I need, in this life because Christ lives in me.
