More Than You Know

“More Than You Know”
© & ® by Jennifer Benson and Mark Blas

I know life goes back and forth upon these winding roads
And it seems there’s no one else to carry the load
But He’ll never leave you
Or give you up
Rest in Him and He’ll fill your empty cup

More than you know
He wants to be your friend
More than you know
He wants to be your bright and shining star
And you know He’ll never really be that far, never so
Cause Jesus loves you more than you know

Well you try so hard to live
A good life on your own
But there’s pressures in your life and you keep givin in
Though your good intentions can’t save your soul
What you need is a Savior for you sin

More than you know
He wants to be your friend
More than you know
He wants to be your bright and shining star
And you know He’ll never really be that far, never so
Cause Jesus loves you more than you know

You don’t even need to know how
Or why is it true
That every time the world gets the best of you
He never lets you go
Jesus still loves you

More than you know
He wants to be your friend
More than you know
He wants to be your bright and shining star
And you know He’ll never really be that far, never so
Cause Jesus loves you more than you know

More than you know
He wants to be your friend
More than you know
He wants to be your bright and shining star
And you know He’ll never really be that far, never so
Cause Jesus loves you more than you know

In the rivers of life flowin deep within
You carry Your way in me
There is nowhere else I’d rather be
Than in this moment right now
And You are there for me
And I long for you endlessly

I thirst for Your love
I thirst for Your touch
I thirst for Your voice
I thirst for You
You quench my heart whole
And the deepest part of my soul
You make my life anew with everything I know
I thirst for You

In the way that You move
In the way that You love
In this world as cold as stone
I don’t have to be alone
Cause Your fountains are all overflowin
And you are there for me
And You’ll be here eternally

I thirst for Your love
I thirst for Your touch
I thirst for Your voice
I thirst for You
You quench my heart whole
And the deepest part of my soul
You make my life anew with everything I know
I thirst for You

Your rainin down from the wells
That run so deep
And you give me all the best
And everything
That I will ever need
All I need

I thirst for Your love
I thirst for Your touch
I thirst for Your voice
I thirst for You
You quench my heart whole
And the deepest part of my soul
You make my life anew with everything I know
I thirst for You

I thirst for You

I thirst for You

“Only You”
Copyright 2005 © & ® by Jennifer Benson and Mark Blas

One day I was alone
But you have shown Your perfect love to me
And You have been there by my side
Even though I haven’t been there too
And I just wanna thank you
For what You’ve done
And everything you’ve given me

You have brought the sunshine to my eyes
And Your love has taken me by surprise
You have turned my darkness into light
And filled me with Your love
In everything You do
Wanna give you all my heart
Cause this song is for only You

You have captured all my heart
And You are beautiful in every way
You are like a light that shines
You lift me up with all the words You say
And I just wanna thank you
Cause now I see
That You’ve made new life in me

You have brought the sunshine to my eyes
And Your love has taken me by surprise
You have turned my darkness into light
And filled me with Your love
In everything You do
Wanna give you all my heart
Cause this song is for only You

And when I see You standing there
I can see how much You care

You have brought the sunshine to my eyes
And Your love has taken me by surprise
You have turned my darkness into light
Wanna give You all my heart

You have brought the sunshine to my eyes
And Your love has taken me by surprise
You have turned my darkness into light
And filled me with Your love
In everything You do
Wanna give you all my heart
Cause this song is for only You

This is for only You

This is for only You

When I come home
And see you at the door
You call me Mama and it makes me love you more
When I’m standing there and see your smiling face
It warms my heart and I long for your embrace
You are such a precious girl
You came in my life and changed my world

When I look in your eyes
it makes me smile
There is no one else like you
Your loving heart shine through
In all you do
And I want you to know that I'll be there for you
cause your my angel Cassady

So many days
When you feel so alone
But you should know
that God will be there for you
and so many times you'll wonder why you're here
but you can lean on me to help you through the years
more than anything I know
He'll never let you down
He'll never let you go

When I look in your eyes
it makes me smile
There is no one else like you
Your loving heart shine through
In all you do
And I want you to know that I'll be there for you
cause your my angel Cassady

More than anything I know
He'll never let you down
He'll never let you go

When I look in your eyes
it makes me smile
There is no one else like you
Your loving heart shine through
In all you do
And I want you to know that I'll be there for you
cause your my angel Cassady

When I look in your eyes
it makes me smile
And I want you to know that I'll be there for you
cause your my darling angel Cassady
