More Than Words Lyrics

by Steven Curtis Chapman

Lord, I don't know what to say
As I get down on my knees to pray
The same old phrases come to mind
But you've heard them all a thousand times

It's not that it's untrue when I say "Lord, I love you"
It's just that I want it to be more

More than words
(More than words oh Lord)
I want my prayer to be more than words
(More than words)
Thoughts my heart alone can speak

As you listen to me tell
Of all your power and mercy
Lord you know it's my desire
What you hear is more than words

As I open up this book
And read of all the love it took
For a Holy God to care for man
Oh spirit help me understand

It's not that it's unclear, it's a letter to children
But Lord I know it's meant to be much more

More than words
(More than words oh Lord)
Not just letters on the page more than words
(More than words)
For every line and every phrase

Was a breath of inspiration
From a caring father
(Caring father)
Who gave the gift of his son
To prove he loved us more than words

More than words
More than words

As I consider quietly
The wonder of all your ability
It's more than I can comprehend
And I find myself in need again

But if I had every word and a thousand years to use them
What you are to me would still be more, oh so much more
More than words

More than words, more than words, more than words
What you are to me is more than words
And I love you more than words can say
