Lyrics

Perfect People

Written By: Jon Oney

I hear you say, “Come as you are.” I am scared and run away, but you find my heart.
I’m not perfect in anyway, but you love me just the same.

God I know there’s no perfect people, but some times I feel the furthest away.
You say, “Child of weakness come and find me. Your sin is not binding; you’re new each day!”

And I try to be so good, but I always come up short. Like a solider coming home from the war, I find myself battered and torn. I’m not perfect in anyway, but you love me just the same.

No perfect people! No perfect people!
No perfect people! No perfect people here!

Here I Am

Written By: Jon Oney

All the world to find love so divine. More than lovers know. More than all I know. For all the world to see a father after me. Running from his place to catch me with his grace.

And all I need is this love. And all I need is your touch!

Here I am, broken at your feet. Cast me know aside, I’m begging you please. I’m calling from this earth come heal this hurt. I have been unease. I’m begging on my knees. Here I am!

I have laid to rest my self at your throne. The holiest of heaven is you and you alone. I’m falling on my face. I beg forgiveness and grace. Hear my cry from heaven. Hear me even now.

Cause All I need is this love. All I need is your touch!

For all the world to know it’s your love. For all the world to see it’s your majesty. For all the world to know it’s your son. I’m bound by grace just to be with you!

Here I am!

Grace

Written By: Jon Oney

Your grace is new, like the ocean water it hits you.
Smiling you take me back. You are the strength I lack.
Everyday is a struggle just to keep myself above the water.
Finding the strength I found in you, you’re my life! You breathed in me your truth.

Grace it surrounds me. Waves crash around me.
Waters that take me back to You.
Storms try to drown me. Thunder it shakes me.
Faith it keeps me close to You.

Faith, my light, I see the path that was laid out before me.
I trust it to bring me out of darkness where I can see.
Where the light cannot be seen, You are the glory that will shine that has always been my eternal guide. You will be forever. Will be always be with me

So here I am again in you!
Love restore my life your truth!
