lyrics

Three in the morning
Without any warning
A stranger walked down the avenue
Stepped out of the night
Into a circle of light
Looked like someone I once knew

Without a trace
Of expression of His face
He held out His hand to me
All of my pride
Suddenly died
I was at the crossroads of destiny

Take my hands
Take feet
Take my voice too
Take all You have given me
Let me glorify You

I tried to speak
But was too weak
I tried to walk but couldn't move
I was guilty of treason
Imprisoned by reason
Only believing what I could prove

I was dancing on a precipice
Clinging to an hourglass
With just a few grains of sand
Still blinded by doubt
I slowly reached out
And took the Creator's hand

Take my hands
Take feet
Take my voice too
Take all You have given me
Let me glorify You

I knew I was doomed
When I stepped out of the womb
And there was no way of getting back
I made my connection
But was given wrong direction
When I was told there was nothing that I lack

I got music in my hands
Got a head full of plans
But I'm not the one at the reins
The world won't sympathize
The church won't patronize
It's just me and You and these pains

Take my hands
Take feet
Take my voice too
Take all You have given me
Let me glorify You ...
