"Less Is More" as written by and Matthew Arnold Thiessen....
Jesus, I pray
Take all my mistakes
Throw them away
Destroy them for my sake

Jesus, I call out 'cause I'm sorry
Because I fall so short of your glory
To the best of my ability
I'm practicing humility
And I lay myself before
'Cause less is more

All that I have
I lay before
With my pride on the floor
'Cause to you less is more

All that I have
I lay before
With my pride on the floor
'Cause to you less is more

A part of myself
All that I am
You love me so much
That you fill me again
And may these words on my heart, on my lips
Somehow mean so much more than this

Jesus, I pray
Know what I'm trying to say

All that I have
I lay before
With my pride on the floor
'Cause to you less is more

All that I have
I lay before
With my pride on the floor
'Cause to you less is more

A part of myself, before you were Lord
I hold nothing back, 'cause to you less is more
And may these words on my heart on my lips,
Somehow mean so much more than this

Jesus, I pray
Just know what I'm tryin' to say

Jesus, I plead
Please purify me
Make my heart clean
Drench me with your mercy

Jesus, I pray
I love you, I need you
For the rest of my days
I swear I will seek you

To the best of my ability
I'm practicing humility
And I lay myself before
'Cause less is more.

    General CommentThis song is so sweet, It always makes me wanna cry when i hear it cuz Jesus has done so much for all of us and we still sin in spite of it. The least we can do is honor Him by what we do. I think this song is all about repenting to God and asking Him to help you to get on the right path that He wants you to be on. Its about just laying everything out before God and asking Him to change it and mold it into what is beautiful and worthy to Him. Its a great song and i love it.

    General Commentthis song is a perfect example of why i like relient k...a lot of christian bands write songs trying to make you think they are saints......that their walk w/ God is a bed of roses....they're a very humble bunch of guys

    General CommentI can't say enough about this song. It puts the Christian struggle into perspective better than any song I've heard so far. We all should be so humble in life. Plus the hidden track is pretty sweet to. We all should have more skittles and combos!

    General CommentThis reminds me of when I was saved. I LOVE singing this song to Jesus. it's so beautiful and exactly what I want to say to Him. "I pour out myself before you, oh Lord. I hold nothing back, 'cause to you less is more." It's great. When I hear it, it reminds me to be humble and to remember how short I fall of His glory. that I should be falling on my face in reverence to Him... Sometimes we get so proud because we're set apart that we don't understand how huge God's mercy truly is. I just make this my prayer so much right now... :) Jesus really is my best friend, you know?
