Lord, You know how much I want to know so much
In the way of answers and explanations
I have cried and prayed and still I seem to stay
In the middle of lifes complications

All this pursuing leaves me
Feeling like Im chasing down the wind
But now its brought me back to You
And I can see again

This is everything I want and this is everything I need
I want this to be my one consuming passion
Everything my heart desires, Lord I want it all to be for You
Jesus be my magnificent obsession

So capture my heart again
Take me to depths Ive never been
Into the riches of Your grace and Your mercy
Return me to the cross and let me be completely lost
In the wonder of the love that Youve shown me

Cut through these chains that tie me down
To so many lesser things
Let all my dreams fall to the ground
Until this one remains

This is everything I want and this is everything I need
I want this to be my one consuming passion
Everything my heart desires, Lord I want it all to be for You
Jesus be my magnificent obsession, my magnificent obsession

You are everything I want
And You are everything I need
Lord You are all my heart desires
You are everything to me

You are everything I want, You are everything I need
I want You to be my one consuming passion
Everything my heart desires, Lord I want it all to be for You
I want it all to be for You

'Cause You are everything I want, You are everything I need
I want You to be my one consuming passion
Everything my heart desires, Lord I want it all to be for You
Jesus be my magnificent obsession, be my magnificent obsession
All for You
