Except For You (Revised)

Because You’re my Lord…
Because You are the source of my need to love;
Because only Your love can provide the saving grace
I so desperately need;

And because my energy
Need no longer, thanks to You,
Seek to know others apart from You,
I may now begin filling those empty parts of me,
Parts too obscure to see before I knew You.

And if I should forget that it is You, Father,
Who makes everything, everyone else, possible;
If I should ever be so busy as to be blind to Your grace,
Please let me know. Please call me back to You,
From all those other places.

Help me see Yours above all other faces and
Remind me, again and again,
That none of it would be true,
Except for You.
