You Are

You are my bread when I am hungry
You are my strength when I am weak
You are the truth when I’ve been lied to
You are the answer that I seek
You are my water when I’m thirsty
You are my light when it is dark
You are my rock when I am breaking
You are the healer of my heart

You are the Alpha and Omega
You are the bright and morning star
Everything that I could ever need
You are

You are the way when I am wayward
You are the truth when I’m a liar
You are the life when I am dying
You are my rescue from the fire
You are the door when I am knocking
You are the shepherd when I’m lost
You are the Lord, You are the Son of God
You are the Lamb who bore my cross

You are the Alpha and Omega
You are the bright and morning star
Everything that I could ever need
You are

STORY BEHIND THIS SON...

(Read the Gospel of John)
Throughout all the Gospels, but particularly in John, Jesus proclaims, "I am..."

He is the Way, the Truth, the Life, the Door, the Good Shepherd, the Light of the World...the list goes on. In short He is everything we could ever need. This song is a simple response to all these claims of Christ. A believer's "Amen", if you will.

Yes, Lord! You are everything that I could ever need. You are my all in all.

In writing Christian music,
lyrics have to be
the heartbeat of the song.
After all, it is the lyrics
that primarily distinguish Christian music
from secular music.
It's not the only mark
of distinction,
but it is
the most important.
