lyrics

BECAUSE YOU ARE

You mean everything to me
You gave me life, You set me free
You gave me hope and led me through
All the dark places, before I came to You

Because You are my precious Father
You give me light and keep me warm
You are the Rock of my salvation
My strong refuge in the storm

Well, You have freed me from the law
You bore my grief, they whipped You raw
You became sin, accursed upon the cross
It hurts to think of how You paid the cost

Because You are my precious Savior
And You shed Your blood for me
It is the cleansing rain of righteousness
That purifies and sets us free

You are preparing us to reign
Within Your plan, each one You train
To become more and more like You
Your grace and love carry us through

Because we are Your precious children
Pre-ordained before the world
We are partakers of Your suffering
And the glory to be unfurled

For You are coming for us quickly
This time will soon become the past
You are the reason for our living
And we will see Your face at last
