"Magnificent Obsession" as written by and Steven Curtis Chapman....
Lord, You know how much
I want to know so much
In the way of answers and explanations
I have cried and prayed
And still I seem to stay
In the middle of life's complications
All this pursuing leaves me feeling like I'm chasing down the wind
But now it's brought me back to You
And I can see again

This is everything I want
This is everything I need
I want this to be my one consuming passion
Everything my heart desires
Lord, I want it all to be for You, Jesus
Be my magnificent obsession

Capture my heart again
Take me to depths I've never been
Into the riches of Your grace and Your mercy
Return me to the cross
And let me be completely lost
In the wonder of the love
That You've shown me
Cut through these chains that tie me down to so many lesser things
Let all my dreams fall to the ground
Until this one remains

You are everything I want
Lord You're everything I need
I want this to be my one consuming passion
Everything my heart desires
Lord, I want it all to be for You
Jesus, be my magnificent obsession
My magnificent obsession
My magnificent obsession

You are everything I want
Lord You're everything I need
You are all my heart desires
Lord, You're everything to me

You are everything I want
Lord You're everything I need
I want this to be my one consuming passion
Everything my heart desires
Lord, I want it all to be for You
I want it all to be for You

You are everything I want
Lord You're everything I need
I want this to be my one consuming passion
Everything my heart desires
Lord, I want it all to be for You
Jesus, be my magnificent obsession
My magnificent obsession
