The Man You Want Me to Be Submit Correct Lyrics

I played the fool so long, thought I was so strong
All the while You knew it wasn't true
Rerunning in my mind, memories of another time
When all I ever lived for was You

Jesus, make me the man that You want me to be
Jesus, make me the man that You want me to be

I've been listening all my life, words are spoken all the time
I have heard the liars and the true
Voices twisting in the air, sweetly sounding so unclear
But nothing can replace a word from You

Jesus, make me the man that You want me to be
Jesus, make me the man that You want me to be

A child is but for so long, turn around those days are gone
Nothing can replace the years of youth
I have swallowed lies that tasted true
The plans I thought were sent from You
When all You wanted was for me to be still

Jesus, make me the man that You want me to be
Jesus, make me the man You want to see

The burning in the heart of man's deepest desire
Is rising like a flame, ooh

Jesus, make us the men you want us to be
Jesus, make me the man You want me to be

The burning in the heart of our deepest desire
Is rising like a flame, burning higher and higher
Burning in the heart of our deepest desire
Is to know You

The burning in the heart of our deepest desire
Is rising like a flame, burning higher and higher
Burning in the heart of our deepest desire
Is to know You
(Jesus)

The burning in the heart of our deepest desire
Is rising like a flame, burning higher and higher
Burning in the heart of our deepest desire
Is to know You
(Yeah)

Jesus, make us the men you want us to be
