In the Light

Words and Music by: Charlie Peacock

Arranged by: the McLemore Brothers (Jon and Mark McLemore)

 

I keep trying to find a life

On my own, apart from You

I am the king of excuses

I've got one for every selfish thing I do 

 

What's going on inside of me?

I despise my own behavior

This only serves to confirm my suspicions

That I'm still a man in need of a Savior 

 

Chorus

I wanna be in the Light

As You are in the Light

I wanna shine like the stars in the heavens

Oh, Lord be my Light and be my salvation

Cause all I want is to be in the Light

All I want is to be in the Light 

 

The disease of self runs through my blood

It's a cancer fatal to my soul

Every attempt on my behalf has failed

To bring this sickness under control 

 

Tell me, what's going on inside of me?

I despise my own behavior

This only serves to confirm my suspicions

That I'm still a man in need of a Savior 

 

Chorus

 

Honesty becomes me

[There's nothing left to lose]

The secrets that did run me

[In Your presence are defused]

Pride has no position

[And riches have no worth]

The fame that once did cover me

[Has been sentenced to this Earth]

Has been sentenced to this Earth 

 

Tell me, what's going on inside of me?

I despise my own behavior

This only serves to confirm my suspicions

That I'm still a man in need of a Savior 

 

Chorus 2x

 

[There's no other place that I want to be]

[No other place that I can see]

[A place to be that's just right]
