06. Please Only You

All Things New
by Steven Curtis Chapman



 

So here I go again, again
Iíve let myself get spread so thin
I can see right through my skin
And I donít like what Iím finding in my heart
So many different voices call
And I try hard to please them all
I run in circles Ďtil I fall
So Iím falling on my knees and praying

Please, please, please only You, only You
Please, please, please take my heart and make it true
Let everything I say and everything I do
Please, please only You
Please only You

For every moment of my time
For every thought that fills my mind
For every melody and rhyme
This is the prayer that Iíll be praying

Please, please, please only You, only You
Please, please, please take my heart and make it true
In everything I say and everything I do

This is what it means to be
The reason why I live and breathe
To know that I am totally existing for Your pleasure
Iím still learning but I know
As this becomes my only goal
The more I find my heart and soul is filled up with joy when I
Please only you
Please only you

Please, please, please only You, only You
Please, please, please take my heart and make it true
Let everything I say and everything I do
Please, please only You
I want to please only You
You, you, you, you, only you
Please, please, please take my heart and make it true
Let everything I say and everything I do
Please only You

Behind the Song:
'ďPlease Only YouĒ is a prayer that I had been praying as I started writing this record. I always struggle with how do I keep everybody happy, how do I please everybody? Ultimately, I just want God to be pleased with what I do, with the gifts that Heís give me; Heís the only audience at the end of the day that matters. Itís like what Eric Little says in the movie Chariots of Fire, my favorite movie of all times, where he says, ďWhen I run, I feel Godís pleasure.Ē And I felt in this recording, in particular this song, I felt Godís pleasure in it, and that was a pretty exciting thing for me.' - Steven Curtis Chapman
