Declaration Of Dependence Lyrics

by Steven Curtis Chapman

Now just the other day I overheard a flower talking to the sky
He said, "You know that I would be nothing without you"
He said, "You give me rain you give the sun a place to shine
You're everything that my whole existence comes down to"

And then the flower started singing a song
Before I knew it I was singing along and we sang

"This is my declaration of dependence
This is my declaration of my need
This is my declaration of dependence
On the one who gave His life to me"

Now, let me say that I'm the kind of guy who wants to do it all myself
Don't want to ask for help, don't like to stop for directions
But in reality I'm nothing on my own
It's by Gods grace alone that I can make this confession

All that I am and all I'm hoping to be
Is all and only what He's given to me so I say

"This is my declaration of dependence
This is my declaration of my need
This is my declaration of dependence
On the one who gave His life to me, yeah, yeah, yeah"

And I know this is how my life was meant to be
I was made for this dependency on the one who has created me
So I'll sing my declaration song for the one I am depending on
And I hope you'll sing along

This is my declaration of dependence
This is my declaration of my need
This is my declaration of dependence
On the one who gave His life to me, yeah, yeah, yeah
This is my declaration

This is my declaration of dependence
This is my declaration of my need
This is my declaration of dependence
On the one who gave His life to me

This is my declaration of dependence
This is my declaration
This is my declaration of dependence
This is my declaration

This is my declaration of dependence
This is my declaration
This is my declaration of dependence

My declaration of my name
