Nichole Nordeman - Even Then

rate me

It's a fear that keeps me wide awake<br />

In the middle of the night<br />

When the expectations are too great<br />

And the bar gets raised too high<br />

So I do the best with what I've got<br />

And hope that no one knows<br />

That I strain to see how high I can<br />

Try to stand on these toes<br />

Until I'm measured, but You know better<br />

<br />

So, thank You, Jesus<br />

Even when You see us just as we are<br />

Fragile and frail and so far<br />

From who we want to be<br />

So, thank You, Jesus<br />

Even when the pieces are broken and small<br />

Dreams shatter and scatter like the wind<br />

Thank You, even then<br />

<br />

So I put aside the masquerade<br />

And admit that I am not okay<br />

Which may not be the thing to say<br />

But I'm not ashamed to need You more each day<br />

<br />

So, thank You, Jesus<br />

Even when You see us just as we are<br />

Fragile and frail and so far<br />

From who we want to be<br />

So, thank You, Jesus<br />

Even when the pieces are broken and small<br />

Dreams shatter and scatter like the wind<br />

Thank You, even then<br />

<br />

We raise the standard and try to reach You<br />

But we'll never make it and we don't need to ...<br />

<br />

So, thank You, Jesus<br />

Even when You see us just as we are<br />

Fragile and frail and so far<br />

From who we want to be<br />

So, thank You, Jesus<br />

Even when the pieces are broken and small<br />

Dreams shatter and scatter like the wind<br />

Thank You, even then
