Keep telling the story, be faithful and true;
Let others see Jesus in you

Your life's a book before their eyes they're reading it thro' and thro'
Say, does it point them to the skies, do others see Jesus in you?

All that I am, all that I have, I lay them down before You oh, Lord
All my regrets, all my acclaims, the joy and the pain, I’m making them Yours

All of my heart, all of my praise, my heart and my hands are lifted to You
*Lord, I offer my life to You
  Everything I’ve been through use it for Your glory
  Lord, I offer my days to You
  Lifting my praise to You as a pleasing sacrifice
  Lord, I offer You my life
