my lyricsbox
We're leaving a trial wherever we go,
Pushing so hard that we never slow,
To stop and wonder what we've left
For this world to know.
Somewhere deep in my heart
I wish I knew for sure
What you'd remember me
When I'm not here anymore.
The Lord has a way of healing the past,
Of taking your best and making it last.

I want to leave a legacy of love for you
That will add up to more
Than this simple man could ever be.
I want to leave a legacy.

When the hard winds blow,
Like a feather we spin.
If we've fallen asleep,
We may waken again to find
We've long been judged so blind, so deaf.
So when it's all said and done
I pray this one thing is left:

That I may leave a legacy of love for you

That will add up to more
Than this simple man could ever be.
Lord, help me leave a legacy.

With things unseen,
God will bring reality from a dream.
That's what His Spirit does.
Time keeps slipping away
With ev'ry word that I say.
He is the good in us.

And my hopes and desires
Are what I want you to see.
They're not what I am
But what I'd like to be.
Jesus died and is risen to redeem mankind.
So when all seems lost
Keep this is mind:

That He has left a legacy of love for you
That will add up to more
Than any man could ever be.
And if God will shed His grace on me
I will have left a legacy.
