"Welcome Home" as written by and Shaun Groves....
Take, me, make me
All You want me to be
That's all I'm asking, all I'm asking

Welcome to this heart of mine
I've buried under prideful vines
Grown to hide the mess I've made
Inside of me
Come decorate, Lord
Open up the creaking door
And walk upon the dusty floor
Scrape away the guilty stains
Until no sin or shame remain
Spread Your love upon the walls
And occupy the empty halls
Until the man I am has faded
No more doors are barricaded

Come inside this heart of mine
It's not my own
Make it home
Come and take this heart and make it
All Your own
Welcome home

Take a seat, pull up a chair
Forgive me for the disrepair
And the souvenirs from floor to ceiling
Gathered on my search for meaning
Every closet's filled with clutter
Messes yet to be discovered
I'm overwhelmed, I understand
I can't make this place all that You can

I took the space that You placed in me
Redecorated in shades of greed
And I made sure every door stayed locked
Every window blocked, and still You knocked


Take me, make me
All You want me to be
That's all I'm asking, all I'm asking

    General Commentoh man! this song is so awesome~ when i first heard it i broke down relizing Gods love for us and how much we need him in our lifes. i think of the people that i know that put so much effort into keeping him out. But God will find that crack in the house to get in!!

    General CommentI really like this song. It's so true about our lives and how God can come in and just clean up. We give Him a lot of work to do, but He can do it all. Since, I'm into interior design, this song has even more special meaning. Love it!!

    General CommentThis song IS amazing. One of my favorites. However, I'm disappointed in the formatting and spelling of the lyrics.
