nothing more precious

from DreamWorks' Joseph: King of Dreams, David Campbell's Better Than I (2.28mb) (link removed):


I thought I did what's right
I thought I had the answers
I thought I chose the surest road
But that road brought me here

So I put up a fight
And told You how to help me
Now just when I have given up
The truth is coming clear

You know better than I
You know the way
I've let go the need to know why
For You know better than I


If this has been a test
I cannot see the reason
But maybe knowing I don't know
Is part of getting through

I try to do what's best
And faith has made it easy
To see the best thing I can do
Is put my trust in You

For You know better than I
You know the way
I've let go the need to know why
For You know better than I


I saw one cloud and thought it was the sky
I saw a bird and thought that I could follow
But it was You who taught that bird to fly
If I let You reach me, will You teach me

For You know better than I
You know the way
I've let go the need to know why
I'll take what answers You supply
You know better than I

LORD, YOU know better than i, You always have. everything i have now was given by You; i could never ask for better, i could never ask for more. even now, i am happier than i am sad, because of You, Lord. Lord, i recognise that everything i have was given by You; i don't ask for better, i don't ask for more, Lord. You make me tear again at the immensity of Your love... Father, You know so much better than i. thank You for being here, thank You for bringing me through. Lord, this is my promise to You, i will not let this stop me from alpha, from mission, anything You send my way, but in everything, only help me to do it in Your strength, and only Yours. the most important result of this fall is the strengthening of my resolve not to cease in serving You. without this, i might never have found out, Lord, that your ministries are ultimately infinitely more fulfilling than grades, for You, alone, are God. take me, use me, teach me, and mould me, Lord, for i am in complete surrender, Lord, all my life is Yours, as it should always have been, as it should rightfully be.
