The King of My Life

God (Inspired by)

My faith is as small as a grain of sand
yet you say with that I can move mountains
when I can barely traverse this molehill.


I've beaten myself against the wall,
and fallen down to my knees,
yet you say I can rule the world
when you are on the throne of my heart.


I surrendered all because
you are the king of my life,
my prince of perfect love.


You say I was forgiven
when I called myself yours
even though I still fail you every day.


If your mercy was a drop in the ocean,
I would drown in the depths of your
consuming compassion.


If I was a leaf on a tree,
your grace branched across that wooden cross
and shook me to the core
and healed the sores on my soul.


If life is a puzzle,
I was looking for the missing piece
and found you would be
the only one to complete me.
