Nichole Nordeman - Take Me as I Am lyrics

Oh, for a heart that does not ache
And for a backbone that won't break
For some steady feet or sturdy ground
A road that isn't gonna let me
Turn around and run
For a thousand tongues to sing

To wear wisdom like Solomon's robe
For the patience and perspective
Of a man like Job
Just to soar on wings of eagles
For no other reason
Than the bird's eye view
For a flight or two

And the list gets longer
Who I wish I was
And was no longer

I never could be good enough
To measure up
But You want to take me as I come
You're the only one that can
So take me as I am

Oh, to feel hope in hopeless times
Never mind the silver lining
'Cause the clouds are fine

To breathe prayers that move the heavens
Or save hundreds from the flames
To know my place
To know my name

But the gap grows wider
Between who I am
And all I aspire to be

I never could be good enough
To measure up
But You want to take me as I come
You're the only one that can
Take me as I am

At the end of myself
And the end of the day
I can find little else
But the courage to say
I need You, that's all
I need You, that's all

I never could be good enough
To measure up
But You want to take me as I come
You're the only one that can
Take me as I am
