Behind and Before

[Verse 1]

When all the world was void and dark

Oh, You knew me from the start

You saw me and made me anew

You reached into the deepest deep

Oh, when your Spirit set me free

Too high, yes, too great to define

 

[Chorus]

Lord of love

Behind and before me

I see your grace

So search my heart

And lead me in

Your everlasting way

 

[Verse 2]

You know each moment when I rise

Oh, the beating of my life

How precious your thoughts from above

No heart is hidden from your view

Oh, the dark is light to you

My song shall ring praise to your name

 

[Bridge]

Merciful, Jesus You’re merciful

Beautiful, Jesus You’re beautiful
