Well it Seems

I just found the song that God used to invite me to a deeper commitment to himself when I was 13.  One Friday or Sunday night sitting in a building that no longer exists in Hurstville, Sydney in 1989 we sang this song and, along with many other things God was doing in my life at the time, it called me to in deeper way than ever before "give my life to him and him alone".  I don't know who it's by - if any of you St Gile's readers know - I'd love to know who actually wrote it.

Well It Seems

Chorus:
Well it seems like there are just so many things
That can take my heart away from you oh Lord.
Oh please, please help me Lord to see the emptiness they bring,
And by your grace I'll serve you always,
You are my King.

Verse 1:
I'm bound up in a course of education
The pressures on to study and succeed
I'm seeking a career, some money and my self-esteem
Am I really doing this for you or me?

Verse 2:
Some friends I have do things that do not please you,
And it's sometimes hard to differ from the crowd
Relationships are fine, but only under your control
Am I showing all my friends how great you are?

Verse 3:
When I think of all you left behind to save me,
Your Father's glory and your heavenly home
The sacrifice you made for me is just beyond compare
I give my life to you and you alone.

I have a feeling that it may be a Craig and Anita original. Anita is on Facebook now if you want to ask her...
