"Can I Be with You" as written by Richard Mullins and Benjamin Justin Peters....
Everybody, each and all
We're gonna die eventually
It's no more or less our fault
Than it is our destiny

So now, Lord, I come to You
Asking only for Your grace
You know what I've put myself through
All those empty dreams I chased

And when my body lies in the ruins
Of the lies that nearly ruined me
Will You pick up the pieces that were pure and true
And breathe life into them, set them free?

And when You start this world over again from scratch
Will You make me anew out of the stuff that lasts?
Stuff that's purer than gold is
And clearer than glass could ever be
Can I be with You? Can I be with You?

Everybody, all and each
From the day that we are born
We have to learn to walk beneath
Those mercies by which we're drawn

And now we wrestle in the dark
With these angels that we can't see
We will move on although with scars
Oh Lord, move in me

And when my body lies in the ruins
Of the lies that nearly ruined me
Will You pick up the pieces that were pure and true
And breathe life into them and set them free?

When You blast this cosmos to kingdom come
When those jagged edged mountains we love are gone
When the sky is crossed with the tears
Of a thousand falling suns as they crash into the sea
Can I be with You? Can I be with You?

Can I be with You? Can I be with You?
Can I be with You? Can I be with You?

And when my body lies in the ruins
Of the lies that nearly ruined me
Will You pick up the pieces that were pure and true
And breathe life into them and set them free?

(Can I be?)
Will You set them free?
(Can I be with You?)
Will You set them free?
(Can I be with You?)
(Can I be with You?)
Set me free
