I've thrown it all away that I might gain a life in You
I've found all else is loss compared to the joys of knowing You
Your beauty and Your majesty are far beyond compare
You've won my heart, now this will be my prayer
(CHORUS)
Take the world, but give me Jesus
You're the treasure in this life
Take the world, but give me Jesus
Is my cry
Now I've seen You as the Savior, I will leave the rest behind
Take the world, but give me Jesus is my cry
Into the world I go that I might live this life of love
I won't be overcome, for You are in me and You are strong
For time and for eternity, I know I'm in Your care
You've won my heart, now this will be my prayer

    This song reveals the heart of one who acknowledges their total dependence on christ. They see their life on this world as only for his glory. This world has nothing to offer that they truly desire and need.

    What this means to me is take a world i've created which is filled with ignorance and now holding me back and not furthering me in any way for a life that is based on truth and gracious living.

    This means to me that i am not wanting worldly things to give me joy and peace and that i want to share that with others.
