my portion

(2003)

This song is very special to me. I donít play piano nearly as much as the guitar, but it seems itís the prayerful worship songs that come out of my time on the keys. "My Portion" is taken from the Psalms. It's simply a proclamation of God's faithfulness; how He is the beginning and the end and everything in between. Itís a prayer really. I am just so thankful to know Him.

You are my portion
You are my cup
What happens when the service is over
What happens when I give up

You're above me, below me, beside
You're in front, and behind, You're alive
Youíre the why and what for
Youíre the one that I adore
You are God and I am not and that's enough
You are God and I am not and that's enough

You lift me out of my troubles
You heal me from my shame
Lord how did I get to be so helpless
But praise you Lord, You remain

You're above me, below me, beside
You're in front, and behind, You're alive
Youíre the why and what for
Youíre the one that I adore
You are God and I am not and that's enough
You are God and I am not and that's enough

Tear back the skies and lift your eyes know that God is with you
Call out His name with no restrain He will see you through, yeah
It doesnít matter what the sin, it's never too late to begin
To believe, to receive, glory to His name

You're above me, below me, beside
You're in front, and behind, You're alive
Youíre the why and what for
Youíre the one that I adore
You are God and I am not and that's enough
You are God and I am not and that's enough
