So many voices telling me which way to go
So many choices come from those who think they know
There's a way that seems right to a man
But it only brings him
I wanna go the way that leads to life
Till I draw my dying breath

Don't wanna be a manpleaser - I wanna be a Godpleaser
I just want to have the wisdom to discern the two apart
Don't wanna be a manpleaser - I wanna be a Godpleaser
I just want to do the things that please the Father's heart

Some make a sacrifice and never let it show
Some make a point of letting everybody know
Some will live their lives as unto men
And they have their reward
I just wanna do everything I do
With all my heart unto the Lord

I just want my life to glorify His Son
To make my Father proud that I'm His child before I'm done
No need to pat me on the back or stop the shake my hand
I just want to hear my Father say "Well done, well done"
I just want to hear my Father say "Well done"

    General CommentWow, I am surprised at how barren these songs are from this time period. All these old Petra songs are the best music I've ever heard, as they are associated with actual Bible SCRIPTURES!!!

    Now regarding this song: If only everyone would live this way...Of course, its about pleasing our Father Yahweh!! Who is being everything!! OUR VERY EXISTENCE!!
