In The Light

Artist: dc Talk | Album: Jesus Freak | © 1991 Sparrow Song / Andi Beat Goes on Music

I keep trying to find a life
On my own apart from You
I am the king of excuses
I’ve got one for every selfish thing I do (I really do)
I’ve got one for every stinkin’ selfish thing I do

Tell me what’s going on inside of me
I despise my own behaviour
This only serves to confirm my suspicions
That I’m still a man in need of a saviour

Chorus:
I wanna be in the Light as You are in the Light
I wanna shine like the stars in the heavens
Oh Lord be my Light and be my salvation
Cause all I want is to be in the Light
All I want is to be in the Light

The disease of self runs through my blood
It’s a cancer fatal to my soul (my soul)
Every attempt on my behalf has failed
To bring this sickness under control
To bring this sickness under control

Chorus)

Bridge:
Honesty becomes me (There’s nothing left to lose)
The secrets that did run me (in Your presence are defused)
Pride has no position (And riches have no worth)
The fame that once did cover me
(Has been sentenced to this earth)
Has been sentenced to this earth
