I just looked up today and
Realized how far away I am from where You are
You gave me life worth dying for but
Between the altar and the door
I bought the lies that promised more
And here I go again

Oh
Oh

Lord, I know I let You down
But somehow, I will make You proud
I'll turn this sinking ship around
And make it back to You

But all my deeds and my good name
Are just dirty rags that tear and strain
To cover all my guilty stains
That You already washed away

'Cause all You've ever wanted,
All You've ever wanted
All You've ever wanted was my heart
Freedom's arms are open,
My chains have all been broken
Relentless love has called me from the start
And all You wanted was my heart

I was chasing healing when I'd been made well
I was fighting battles when You conquered hell
Living free but from a prison cell
Lord, I lay it down today

So I'll stop living off of how I feel
And start standing on Your truth revealed
Jesus is my strength, my shield
And He will never fail me

'Cause all You've ever wanted,
All You've ever wanted
All You've ever wanted was my heart
Freedom's arms are open,
My chains have all been broken
Relentless love has called me from the start
All You wanted was my heart

Oh
No more chains, I've been set free
Oh
No more fighting battles You've won for me
Oh
Now in Christ, I stand complete
Oh

All You've ever wanted,
All You've ever wanted
All You've ever wanted was my heart
(All You've ever wanted was my heart)
Freedom's arms are open,
My chains have all been broken
Relentless love has called me from the start
And all You wanted was my heart

Oh
And all You wanted was my heart
Oh
All You ever wanted was my heart
Oh
And all You wanted was my heart
Oh
