3. Growing to Maturity

1. Seeking the things in the world has left me empty,

Searching for comfort in money, love, and fame

Then when I heard the gospel, I realized within

That God has called me from this vain life of sin.


Now, by His mercy, I’m walking by Him daily

He speaks to me as I learn to hear His voice

Hearing brings revelation, my spirit has gained its sight

Now, separated, I’m following His light.


Bro: I'm following you forward

Sis:     And seeking out Your will

Bro: Through trials and tribulations

Sis:     I’m following you still

Bro: And even when I've fallen

Sis:     My prayer is that...

...until You come Lord don't give up, make me an overcomer

in every situation, keep growing to maturity.

Then everywhere I go Lord, I can witness constantly.


2. Bested by failure, I’m cowering before Thee,

Running away from the church life and Your love

Just when I gave up running, Jesus was right behind

He said to me, “I am yours, and you are Mine.”


Now I’m encouraged, I follow Him before me

All of the hurdles He helps me overcome

I’m being constituted with what I hear and see

And as I’m chasing, He’s growing more in me.


Bro: I'm following you forward

Sis:     And seeking out Your will

Bro: Through trials and tribulations

Sis:     I’m following you still

Bro: And even when I've fallen

Sis:&nbs   ; My prayer is that...

...until You come Lord don't give up, make me an overcomer

in every situation, keep growing to maturity.

Then everywhere I go Lord, I can witness constantly.


3. Lord, Your anointing is all Your grace and mercy

I pray Your Spirit brings power from on high

I want to be Your witness, faithful to represent

Your testimony wherever I am sent.


Bro: I'm following you forward

Sis:     And seeking out Your will

Bro: Through trials and tribulations

Sis:     I’m following you still

Bro: And even when I've fallen

Sis:     My prayer is that...

...until You come Lord don't give up, make me an overcomer

in every situation, keep growing to maturity.

Then everywhere I go Lord, I can witness constantly.
