“As You Find Me”–Lyrics and Video

Here are the lyrics and the video for “As You Find Me,” my favorite song on the new Hillsong United album, People.  This song packs the same theological heft as “So Will I”, from a couple of years ago.

VERSE 1
I’ve been strong and I’ve been broken within a moment
I’ve been faithful and I’ve been reckless at every bend
I’ve held everything together and watched it shatter
I’ve stood tall and I have crumbled in the same breath

VERSE 2
I have wrestled and I have trembled toward surrender
Chased my heart adrift and drifted home again
Plundered blessing till I’ve been desperate to find redemption
And every time I turn around Lord, You’re still there

PRE-CHORUS 1
I was found before I was lost
I was Yours before I was not
Grace to spare for all my mistakes
And that part just wrecks me

CHORUS
And I know I don’t deserve this kind of love, somehow this kind of love is who You are
It’s a grace, I could never add up to be somebody You still want
But somehow
You love me as You find me

VERSE 3
Who am I to think Your glory needs my praises?
But if this borrowed breath is Yours Lord, take it all
You are faithful and You are gracious and I’m just grateful
To think You don’t need a single thing and still You want my heart

PRE-CHORUS 2
I was found before I was lost
I was Yours before I was not
You wear the scars for all my mistakes
And that part just wrecks me

TAG
Your love’s too good to leave me here

BRIDGE
If You want my heart
I won’t second guess
‘Cause I need Your love
More than anything
I’m in
I’m Yours
Your love’s too good to leave me here
Your love’s too good to leave me
