(Now! now! now! now!)
This is a song from a broken heart, yeah
(Now! now!)
An urgent prayer when the joy’s departed
(Now! now!)
I don’t  wanna be faithless and bowed down
You’re gonna hear my plea
That I make on my knees

Take my life
From now, forever
Yeah, I wanna live forever
I just wanna live as you desire
(Yield my life)
Your arms are like an open doorway
Like Jesus said, “Not mine but Your way”
I just wanna live to please you; so —
Take my life

(Now! now!)
I just wanna stand on solid ground
(Now! now!)
Like Stephen & Peter who wouldn’t back down
(Now! now!)
Tomorrow’s getting harder, make no mistake
Need a lot of Grace
T’keep running this race

Take my life
From now, forever
Yeah, I wanna live forever
I just wanna live as you desire
(Yield my life)
Your arms are like an open doorway
Like Jesus said, “Not mine but Your way”
I just wanna live to please you; so —
Take my life

[Instr]

Wanna stand tall when you call me out
Not bend, not break, Jesus, be you own

Take my life
From now, forever
Yeah, I wanna live forever
I just wanna live as you desire
(Yield my life)
Your arms are like an open doorway
Like Jesus said, “Not mine but Your way”
I just wanna live to please you; so —
Take my life
From now, forever
Yeah, I wanna live forever
I just wanna live as you desire
(Yield my life)
Your arms are like an open doorway
Like Jesus said, “Not mine but Your way”
I just wanna live to please you; so —
Take my life
