Skillet – Take lyrics

Take my strength, take my pride,
Take my selfishness away
Take my rights, take ambition,
Capture me, make me a slave
Break my walls, break my bones,
Break my hardened heart
Rip my rule, rip my will,
Rip independency apart
Breathe Your life,
Breathe your love,
Breathe Your breath and I'm sustained
Take my hate, take my hurt,
Express healing to my pain

Take my flesh in all it's arrogance, my stability away
Take mmy life, bring fire, 'til only You remain
Laid out on my face (yea)
My tongue hanging out to taste (yea)
Of Your and Your death (yea)
And to know Your name (yea)
Accept my gifts, take my crowns,
I spread them at Your feet
When I bleed, I bleed with joy as I taste Your suffering
Flood life, flood peace, speak acceptance to my shame
Allow to kneel, allow to praise,
Give the right to speak Your name
Laid out on my face (yea)
My tongue hanging out to taste (yea)
Of Your and Your death (yea)
And to know Your name (yea) (repeat)
Laid out on my face
Wanting to know Your name (repeat).
