Nichole Nordeman - Legacy

rate me

I don't mind if you've got something nice to say about me<br />

And I enjoy an accolade like the rest<br />

And you can take my picture and hang it in a gallery<br />

Of all the Who's Who's and So-and-So's<br />

That used to be the best at such and such<br />

It wouldn't matter much<br />

<br />

I won't lie, it feels alright to see your name in lights<br />

We all need an "Atta boy" or "Atta girl"<br />

But in the end I'd like to hang my hat on more besides<br />

The temporary trappings of this world<br />

<br />

I want to leave a legacy<br />

How will they remember me?<br />

Did I choose to love?<br />

Did I point to You enough<br />

To make a mark on things<br />

I want to leave an offering<br />

A child of mercy and grace<br />

Who blessed Your name unapologetically<br />

And leave that kind of legacy<br />

<br />

I don't have to look too far or too long awhile<br />

To make a lengthy list of all that I enjoy<br />

It's an accumulating trinket and a treasure pile<br />

Where moth and rust, thieves and such will soon<br />

Enough destroy<br />

<br />

I want to leave a legacy<br />

How will they remember me?<br />

Did I choose to love?<br />

Did I point to You enough<br />

To make a mark on things<br />

I want to leave an offering<br />

A child of mercy and grace<br />

Who blessed Your name unapologetically<br />

And leave that kind of legacy<br />

<br />

Not well-traveled, not well-read<br />

Not well-to-do, or well-bred<br />

Just want to hear instead<br />

Well done, good and faithful one<br />

<br />

I want to leave a legacy<br />

How will they remember me?<br />

Did I choose to love?<br />

Did I point to You enough<br />

To make a mark on things<br />

I want to leave an offering<br />

A child of mercy and grace<br />

Who blessed Your name unapologetically<br />

And leave that kind of legacy<br />

<br />

I don't mind if you've got something nice to say about me
