Jill Paquette – Lift My Eyes lyrics

Throwing off the fetters and working on a smile
Because it's time that I felt better oh than I have in a while
I want to say I need You--don't leave until I try
'Cause I've been holding onto shadows, holding them inside
And they come from what I've learned in life
And they put my faith to the test
Testing my drive, pulling me under
But hope won't be kept down forever
Lift my eyes
I've seen light lost to darkness
But You made a promise
So lift my eyes
Trusting You will be faithful
I'll do all that I'm able
Believing there's freedom in a life lived forgiven
No room here for the both of you but who should I ask to go?
One holding out my pardon, one holding all I've ever known
Love tells me without speaking resonating in my soul
With a light that's ever reaching, ever letting me go
And some things make me want to hide from life
And some things put my faith to the test
Testing my drive and it's not over
Oh no it's not nearly finished yet
Lift my eyes
I've seen light lost to darkness
But You made a promise
So lift my eyes
Trusting You will be faithful
I'll do all that I'm able
Believing there's freedom in a life lived forgiven
