We grew together
Me and many brothers
From the second time that we were born
To our father in heaven
Every note that was sung
Every breath in our lungs
We knew it came from him

Then we found some daughters
And they looked better than
What the author of our lives had penned
He wrote life and life abundant
I don't know why you didn't want it

I know that you had thought that it was better
I'll never know until I try
The life I came to give you it was whole
I'll never stop until I know that I filled this hole

He's slow to anger
And of great kindness
A slave can now be called a son
In the morning mercy's new again
Never exhausted love

I know that you had thought that it was better
I'll never know until I try
The life I came to give you it was whole
I'll never stop until I know that I filled this hole

Your patient mother
How you gonna tell that you've grown
You can't hide it from her

She wants to be proud
Oh she wants to be proud

She wants to be proud
Oh she wants to be proud

Your patient father
How you gonna stand before his throne
You can't hide it from him

He wants to be proud
Oh he wants to be proud

He wants to be proud
Oh he wants to be proud

He wants to be proud
Oh he wants to be proud

He wants to be proud
Oh he wants to be proud

He wants to be proud
He wants to be proud

I know that you had thought that it was better
I'll never know until I try
The life I came to give you it was whole
I'll never stop until I know that I filled this hole
Return and when I see you I'll come running
Oh I don't think I'm anything but a slave
Father will take you in
You're still his son
The cup he gives you to drink
Will always fill you up
