Nichole Nordeman - Take Me as I Am Lyrics

rate me

Oh, for a heart that does not ache

For a backbone that won't break

For some steady feet or sturdy ground

A road that isn't gonna let me turn around and run

For a thousand tongues to sing

To wear wisdom like Solomon's robe

For the patience and perspective of a man like Job

Just to soar on wings of eagles

For no other reason than the bird's eye view

For a flight or two

And the list gets longer

Who I wish I was, and was no longer

I never could be good enough

To measure up

But You want to take me as I come

You're the only one that can

Take me as I am

Oh, to feel hope in hopeless times

Never mind the silver lining 'cause the clouds are fine

To breathe prayers that move the heavens

Or save hundreds from the flames

To know my place, to know my name

But the gap grows wider

Between who I am and all I aspire to be

I never could be good enough

To measure up

But You want to take me as I come

You're the only one that can

Take me as I am

At the end of myself, at the end of the day

I can find little else but the courage to say I need You

That's all ... I need You

I never could be good enough

To measure up

But You want to take me as I come

You're the only one that can

Take me as I am
