Draw Near
Every good gift is from above for sure
Coming down from the Father of heavenly lights
But we too often forget what those gifts are for
To reflect his light
To reflect his light
-
If I don't know it how can I show it?
Perhaps I know more than I am willing to admit
We can't get free from our bodies because you and me still hang onto what we see.
-
Just because we don't know now doesn't mean we'll never know but it can take us so far from where you're supposed to go, where we could have been.
Whoah, Don't get too close to sin
-
Every sin is from my own lust, for sure
But we too often forget who our sins are for
My selfish ambition has got me knocking on sin's door
Saying, "Come lay me down! Take my hope from me!"
Why can't I get free from my body? Because I still hold onto what I see
-
Oh Lord, I admit to laying like a dog when you speak
For knowing what to do but doing nothing
For knowing your word of life but not living
-
For your word is life
Yours is the only life
I live because you died
And we are just simpletons
Our life with you has just begun
But you give us more grace
Submission brings your embrace
Unveil my face to reflect your light
To reflect your light.

Scripture References:
Every good gift is from above for sure Coming down from the Father of heavenly lights
James 1:17 - Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

Every sin is from my own lust, for sure
James 1:14 - But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

My selfish ambition has got me knocking on sin's door
James 3:14-15 - But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such "wisdom" does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, of the devil.

For knowing what to do but doing nothing
James 4:17 - Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn't do it, sins.

But you give us more grace. Submission brings your embrace
James 4:6-8 - But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble." Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

Unveil my face to reflect your light
2 Corinthians 3:18 - And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
