02. Much Of You

All Things New
by Steven Curtis Chapman



 

How could I stand here
And watch the sun rise
Follow the mountains
Where they touch the sky
Ponder the vastness
And the depths of the sea
And think for a moment
The point of it all was to make much of me
ĎCause Iím just a whisper
And you are the thunder and

I want to make much of you Jesus
I want to make much of your love
I want to live today to give you the praise
That You alone are so worthy of
I want to make much of your mercy
I want to make much of your cross
I give you my life
Take it and let it be used
To make much of you

And how can I kneel here
And think of the cross
The thorns and the whip and the nails and the spear
The infinite cost
To purchase my pardon
And bear all my shame
To think I have anything worth boasting in except for your name
ĎCause I am a sinner
And you are the Savior

I want to make much of you Jesus
I want to make much of your love
I want to live today to give you the praise
That You alone are so worthy of
I want to make much of your mercy
I want to make much of your cross
I give you my life
Take it and let it be used
To make much of you

This is your love, oh God
Not to make much of me
But to send your own son
So that we could make much of you
For all eternity

I want to make much of you Jesus
I want to make much of your love
I want to live today to give you the praise
That You alone are so worthy of
I want to make much of your mercy
I want to make much of your cross
I give you my life
Take it and let it be used
To make much of you

I want to make much of you
Much of you Jesus

Behind the Song:
'A lot of times as Iím writing an album Iíll read books, and certain books will come along and at the right time, will impress, affect and inspire me. One book I read was by John Piper called Donít Waste Your Life, and by the time I finished reading it, I think I had eight or nine songs started and several that ended up on this album. I felt as I finished this book my understanding of just who God is and why Iím here, what the whole point and purpose of my life is, is ultimately to glorify God and to really make much of Him. I feel like He created us for this purpose. Heís the point, not me. This book helped put that in such great perspective for me - to get a new deeper understanding of that.' - Steven Curtis Chapman
