Lord Build Me Up


Lord build me up
I am broken down
Lord i am smashed
But not beyond repair

Though i am hurting
I'll never sink into despair
For i trust in You lord
I believe in your Holy Word

Righteousness is my inheritance
Salvation through the blood
Of the Lamb is mine
Already bought and paid for

Only because you love me Lord
I can claim my inheritance
I acclaim your love
Lord you are the Holy One

You are worthy of all praise
Your glory shines forth
In the darkest night
Your presence is

Even before dawn's first light
The beginning of each day
Is orchestrated in each bird song
By your power

By your might
Mighty God you are
Omnipotent one you are
God above every other

Lord Sabaoth, creating
Force; Holy God
Build me up Lord
As only You can.
