Take this fainted heart
Take these tainted hands
Wash me in Your love
Come like grace again

Even when my strength is lost
I’ll praise You
Even when I have no song
I’ll praise You
Even when it’s hard to find the words
Louder then I’ll sing Your praise

I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise

Take this mountain weight
Take these ocean tears
Hold me through the trial
Come like hope again

Even when the fight seems lost
I’ll praise You
Even when it hurts like hell
I’ll praise You
Even when it makes no sense to sing
Louder then I’ll sing Your praise

I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise

And my heart burns only for You
You are all You are all I want
And my soul waits only for You
And I will sing till the morning has come

Lord my heart burns only for You
You are all You are all I want
And my soul waits only for You
And I will sing till the miracle comes

I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise
I will only sing Your praise

Even when the morning comes
I’ll praise You
Even when the fight is won
I’ll praise You
Even when my time on earth is done
Louder then I’ll sing your praise

I will only sing Your praise

 

 

 

 

 

Meaning: Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.-James 2:24

This song makes made me feel something in my chest, lyrically this song just touched my heart along with it are some memories of the times that I am so down and blessed. In life we should accept changes even if it hurts which is something that pushes us to make some actions that we may regret later on. The lyrics is just something that goes through my heart because in this song, I realized that I actually forgot to give thanks to God The Father. Giving thanks is different from being thankful because being thankful is usually a thought while giving thanks is a form of action and sometimes we should also show how thankful we are as action speaks louder than voice.
