"Counted the Cost" as written by and Cory Asbury Anna Asbury....
I've counted the cost
I count it all as loss
For the sake of knowing you

I peel my hands away from earthly things
God, I turn my eyes away from all these worthless things
I lay down honor and fame, I’m sick of building my own name
Lord, let everything I do be for Your glory and Your fame
Don’t wanna be building castles outta sand 'cause I know they won’t stand
In the wake of the judgment gonna come from Your hand
When all wood hay and stubble will be burned away
'Cause all flesh is fading fast, only Your word remains

I've counted the cost
I count it all as loss
For the sake of knowing You
So until the day
When I'll see You face to face
I'll be taking up my cross

I say goodbye to my father, my mother
I cling to You and You alone I’ll have no other
God, this one thing I do, I leave it all behind
'Cause You said if I searched then it’s You that I would find
I fight the fight of faith, I run the race
Just give me grace that I could seek Your face
So until the day that I die, I’ll be living my life
So in the end when You return I’ll obtain the prize

I lay it all down
That I would be found
A pleasing sacrifice
'Cause I’m living for another day
Living for another age
Your kingdom come on earth

One day He’s gonna split the sky
One day He’s gonna come for His bride
I know it, I know it, I know it, oh, oh, oh, oh
