My Purpose

Written By: Michael A. Williams

My Purpose
(As written by Michael A. Williams)

Verse 1
My purpose is to glorify your name
To give you all the praise
My praise is to bring someone to you
So you can make their whole life new

Chorus
And give them purpose
Like you’ve given it to me
Purpose
You have changed my life and gave it meaning
Purpose
I’m so glad that I see
My purpose is to glorify name

Verse 2
Since my purpose is to glorify you name
My life will name be the same
I’m gonna tell it where ever I go
Jesus loves me, this I know

Bridge
You’re the reason why I sing
You’re the reason I sing this medley
You’re the reason that I breathe
You’re the reason I give you all the praise

Vamp 1
My purpose (x3)
To glorify name

Vamp 2
My hope, my joy, my all
My purpose
My Savior, my Lord, my King
My purpose

Vamp 3
You’re all I need to get by---
Jesus (x3)
My purpose

Gonna be ready when he cracks the sky
Tell all the troubles of this world good-bye
Going to a place where the streets are gold
Tell the story that’s never been told

Hardly wait ‘til tomorrow
Sit down servant work is done
Well done, the race is won
