    the only magic in the whole universe
    is the story of Your miraculous birth
    life and death on the cross
    you did away with the legalistic albatross
    around man's neck
    you made it so that we can expect
    to be richly blessed
    considering the Trinity
    divine expression of Your totality
    i am outdone
    aspect one-the Son
    He died for me
    erased all the painful things
    so that i could be more than conquering
    and have grace
    whether sinning
    or running around befuddled with life's pace
    but the utter fact that
    for 33 1/2 years He joined the human race
    stepped out of heaven
    into the womb of a maiden
    subjected Himself to disgrace
    just to become someone to whom
    i could really relate
    One who could translate
    when I don't have the words
    and pray for me when life
    is more than i can take
    He died first so i would never be last
    because of what He did
    we apprehend
    inexplicable, mysterious things
    aspect two-the Holy Spirit
    indwelling inner man
    inside of me and you
    greater is He
    who lives in me
    i love knowing
    that i was chosen
    knowing that I am part of the plan
    that i have communion with the Man
    Finally aspect three-the Father
    Your hand
    has never let me roam farther
    than i should
    You have helped me understand
    the vanity of being "good"
    you lead by gently speaking
    when i am seeking
    and even when i am not
    the threefold cord
    won't be broken
    i don't have to spend one second hoping
    You show me everything to do
    each step unfolds like 1's and 2's
    when i think too much
    you gently touch
    my temples
    and remind me that the formula for life is simple
    just call Oh Lord
    and climb aboard
    help me become
    someone
    You would entrust
    with divine things
    "religious" people say
    be careful what you pray
    because great faith
    comes with great pain
    yes, everytime i die it stings
    but with each death my spirit is released
    and all the angels in the heavenlies sing
    i've fallen in love with GOD
    i'd like to be able to say I see
    how much You truly love me
    but if i thought i knew Your inumerable thoughts toward me
    i would be deceived
    all i can speak on is the grace i've received
    what does it take
    to show the world
    that of all the choices we make
    love is the easiest road to take
    it is no questioning
    because unconditional love
    means people don't fight for positioning
    there is no act of conditioning
    no precertification
    or qualifying
    no first look rights or testing
    just lots of resting
    love embraces everything
    no one on earth knows
    better than You
    how it must hurt
    to faithfully pursue a lover
    to never come first
    while they choose everything else
    from their career to their earthly mother
    unwilling to trust
    what You said about
    doing exceedingly and abundantly beyond what we ask or think
    it means we can have all the trappings of the world
    as long as we don't sell our souls for a bowl of beans
    use me
    i am willing to be used
    i want to be loosed
    to use my gifts
    for gaining as many
    or as few
    this is the very best
    i can do
    to truly honor You
