Woe to me, I am unclean
A sinner found in your presence
I see you seated on your throne
Exalted, your glory surrounds you

Now the plans that I have made
Fail to compare when I see your glory

Ruin my life, the plans that I made
Ruin desires for my own selfish gain
Destroy the idols that have taken your place
Til it's you alone I live for
You alone I live for

Woe to me, I am unclean
A sinner found in your presence
I see you seated on your throne
Exalted, your glory surrounds you

Now the plans that I have made
Fail to compare when I see your glory

Ruin my life, the plans that I made
Ruin desires for my own selfish gain
Destroy the idols that have taken your place
Til it's you alone I live for
You alone I live for

Holy, holy is the Lord almighty
Holy is the Lord
yeah
Holy, holy is the Lord almighty
Holy is the Lord

Ruin my life, the plans that I made
Ruin desires for my own selfish gain
Destroy the idols that have taken your place
Til it's you alone I live for
You alone I live for

    General CommentEven though I'm totally not religious I love this song. It's so inspiring. It's the atmosphere of this song that makes me think about my life and brings me to a point where I think about if what I'm doing is really what I want - and not what others want from me. I this song for me god is a metaphor for my actual Me with it's wishes, values and needs, that we tend to lose so easily.
