Nichole Nordeman - Take Me As I Am

rate me

Oh, for a heart that does not ache<br />

For a backbone that won't break<br />

For some steady feet or sturdy ground<br />

A road that isn't gonna let me turn around and run<br />

For a thousand tongues to sing<br />

To wear wisdom like Solomon's robe<br />

For the patience and perspective of a man like Job<br />

Just to soar on wings of eagles<br />

For no other reason than the bird's eye view<br />

For a flight or two<br />

And the list gets longer<br />

Who I wish I was, and was no longer<br />

I never could be good enough<br />

To measure up<br />

But You want to take me as I come<br />

You're the only one that can<br />

Take me as I am<br />

Oh, to feel hope in hopeless times<br />

Never mind the silver lining 'cause the clouds are fine<br />

To breathe prayers that move the heavens<br />

Or save hundreds from the flames<br />

To know my place, to know my name<br />

But the gap grows wider<br />

Between who I am and all I aspire to be<br />

I never could be good enough<br />

To measure up<br />

But You want to take me as I come<br />

You're the only one that can<br />

Take me as I am<br />

At the end of myself, at the end of the day<br />

I can find little else but the courage to say I need You<br />

That's all ... I need You<br />

I never could be good enough<br />

To measure up<br />

But You want to take me as I come<br />

You're the only one that can<br />

Take me as I am
