Have I given God enough?


I thought I had given him everything

I thought I had given him everything
When I walked up the aisle at church
I prayed the prayer the preacher said
God said there's still more, I want you to search

I thought I had given Him everything
When every Sunday I filled a pew
I carried my Bible each Sunday morning
God said theres still more I want you to do

I thought I had given Him everything
When at lunch we listened to McGee
Tuning the radio to preachers while eating
God said there's still more I want you to see

I thought I had given Him everything
When each night I started to pray
Pouring out my wants, my hopes, my dreams
God said there's still more I want you to say

I thought I had given Him everything
When I promised Him my relationships
Striving for agape with friends and lovers
God said there's still more I want from your lips

I thought I had given Him everything
When I offered Him my wife and kids
Their life and their hearts for Him
God said there's still more that your heart forbids

I thought I had given Him everything
When I looked at my life in review
I had returned to God all He had given
God said, can't you see.. I want ALL of you!
