Be My Magnificent Obsession

English: Jesus Christ - detail from Deesis mos...

I know… I’ve bored you to death with my post on the second part of Jabez and here I come again with another one… forgive me… but I just can’t shake the word of this song from my head and prayer. It is consuming me! So here it is… Lord be my magnificent obsession… You, be my one consuming passion!

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 life’s complications

All this pursuing leaves me feeling like I’m chasing down the wind But now it’s brought me back to You And I can see again This is everything I want 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 I’ve 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 You’ve 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

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

lyrics – steven curtis chapman
