Lyrics:

I walk the streets of London
and notice in the faces passing by
something that makes me stop and listen
My heart grows heavy with the cry
Where is the hope for London
You whisper and my heart begins to soar
as Iím reminded every street in London is Yours

I walk the dirt roads of Uganda
I see the scars that war has left behind
Hope like the sun is fading
and theyíre waiting for a cure no one can find
And I hear childrenís voices singing
of a God who heals and rescues and restores
and Iím reminded that every child in Africa is Yours

Itís all Yours God, Yours God, everything is Yours
From the stars in the sky to the depths of the ocean floor
and itís all Yours God, Yours God, everything is Yours
Youíre the maker and keeper, Father and ruler of everything
Itís all Yours

I walk the sidewalks of Nashville
like Singapore, Manila and Shanghai
I brush by the beggarís hand and the wealthy man
and everywhere I look I realize
Just like the streets of London
for every man and woman, boy and girl
All of creation, this is our Fatherís world

Itís all Yours God, Yours God, everything is Yours
From the stars in the sky to the depths of the ocean floor
and itís all Yours God, Yours God, everything is Yours
Youíre the maker and keeper, Father and ruler of everything

Itís all Yours, God
Itís all Yours, God
Itís all Yours, God
Itís all Yours, God

The glory is Yours, God
All the honor is Yours, God
The power is Yours, God
The glory is Yours, God
Youíre the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords

And itís all Yours God, Yours God
Everything is Yours
From the stars in the sky to the depths of the ocean floor
And itís all Yours God, Yours God
Everything is Yours
All the greatness and power, the glory and splendor and majesty
Everything is Yours
Itís all Yours

Itís all Yours, God
Itís all Yours, God
Itís all Yours, God
Itís all Yours, God

Itís all Yours, God (my life is Yours)
Itís all Yours, God (my heart is Yours)
Itís all Yours, God (my hands and my feet)
Itís all Yours, God (every song that I sing)

Itís all Yours, God
Itís all Yours, God
Itís all Yours, God
Itís all Yours, God

Itís all Yours, God (all gifts are Yours)
Itís all Yours, God (all our dreams are yours)
Itís all Yours, God (all our plans are Yours, God)
Itís all Yours, God (this whole earth is Yours, God)

Itís all Yours, God (everything is Yours)
Itís all Yours, God
Itís all Yours, God (everything is Yours)
Itís all Yours, God

Itís all Yours, God
Itís all Yours, God
Itís all Yours, God
Itís all Yours, God

*****The 2008 radio single version adds this fourth verse*****

Iíve walked the valley of deathís shadow
So deep and dark that I could barely breathe
Iíve had to let go of more than I could bear
And questioned everything that I believe
But still even here
in this great darkness
A comfort and hope come breaking through
As I can say in life or death
God we belong to you.




Behind the Song:
'Yours' (new verse) includes a new 4th verse that Steven has written since the loss of his daughter Maria in a tragic accident on May 21, 2008.

Steven felt it was important to acknowledge what the family has been going through over these past 8 weeks, and 'Yours' has taken on new meaning in recent weeks to many who work alongside Steven. Already a very special song, Steven's reflections since Maria's loss in the 4th verse only make the song even more challenging, compelling, and passionate. Concertgoers this past weekend had a chance to take in the new lyric, and on each of the 3 occasions rose to their feet in a standing ovation as Steven sang the closing line in the new verse.' - Jim Houser, Steven Curtis Chapman's manager (July 15, 2008)
