Nichole Nordeman - Not To Us

English

Not To Us

All the toil
All in vain
Every image of ourselves that we create
Every dream
Built on sand
Every castle slips away when tides come in
 
Let us not imagine
That we might have a hand in where the wind blows
Where grace goes
Let not any passion be for kingdoms we have fashioned in our own name
For our own fame
 
Not to us
Not to us
But to Your name be glory
To Your name be glory
Not to us
Not to us
But to Your name be glory
To Your name
 
Every beat
Every breath
Every broken road and every ordered step
Every loss
Every gain
Every spotlight
Every shadow
Yours the same
 
So let us not be fooled
And let us not be disillusioned
Let our eyes see You clearly
 
Not to us
Not to us
But to Your name be glory
To Your name be glory
Not to us
Not to us
But to Your name be glory
To Your name
 
Anything that’s good
Anything that’s true
Let it point to You
Let it point to You
 
Not to us
Not to us
But to Your name be glory
To Your name
 
No walls
No greed
No color
No creed
No right
No left
All You
No less
 
Not to us
Not to us
But to Your name be glory
To Your name be glory
Not to us
Not to us
But to Your name be glory
To Your name
 
Anything that’s good
Anything that’s true
Let it point to You
Let it point to You
 
Not to us
Not to us
But to Your name be glory
To Your name
