To live a love that never fails
Love my neighbor as myself
And to give till there is nothing left to give
To live a faith that never dies
To be crucified with Christ
Until all that lives through me is the message

This world can analyze and size you up
And throw you on the scales
They can IQ you and run you through their rigorous details
They can do their best to rate you
And they'll place you on their charts
And then back it up with scientific smarts
But there's more to what your worth
Than what the human eyes can see

Oh I say the measure of a man
Is not how tall you stand
How wealthy or intelligent you are
Cause I found out the measure of a man
God knows and he understands
For he looks inside to the bottom of your heart
And what's in the heart defines the measure of a man

Well you can doubt your worth
And search for who you are and where you stand
But God made you in his image
When he formed you in his hands
And he looks at you with mercy
And he sees you through his love
You're his child and that will always be enough
For there's more to what your worth
Than you could ever comprehend

Oh I say the measure of a man
Is not how tall you stand
How wealthy or intelligent you are
Cause I found out the measure of a man
God knows understands and looks to the bottom of your heart
And what's in the heart defines the measure of a man

From the time, time began
You always chose a man
To lead the people safely by your way
To be a voice and echo what you say
Like David or Abraham
Your word is full of such men
And if the Bible had no closing page
And still was being written to this day

I want to be a man
That you would write about
Oh a thousand years from now
That they could read about
Your servant of choice in whom
You found favor
A man who heard Your voice

I want to be a man
That you would write about
Oh a thousand years from now
That they could read about
Your servant of choice in whom
You found favor
A man who heard Your voice
A man who heard Your voice

They say that into every life
Some rain must fall
For the pain is no respecter
Of the mighty or the small
But sometimes it just seems so unfair
To see the one who's had
More than his share
Oh it makes you wonder why

And Lord I wouldn't second guess
Your mighty plan
For I know You have a purpose
That's beyond the scope of man
If You look inside my heart You will find
That I have always been the trusting kind

Oh but still I wonder Why
Do the rainy days have to come
When the storm clouds hide the sun
I wanna know why
Why
When the reasons aren't clear to me
When it all is a mystery I want to know why
And though down here I may not understand
I won�
