My Life’s Ambition

I wrote this song as an attempt to try to capture a corporate sense of movement outwards into the world around us who so desperately need to hear about the good news of Jesus.

Of course I have my own life experience and convictions which I believe also went into the crafting of the lyrics – My heart-cry is also reflected here!

This is a lively, up-beat song that looks at the concept of outreach and mission.

My local church has sung it fairly regularly ever since I wrote it – and still does! I hope that it blesses you and your church community too.

My Life’s Ambition

CCLI Number: 5011625

It’s You who loved me first  
Gave me a life worth living
Your message burns inside
Your love consumes my life                              

My life’s ambition is to give you glory
With every breath I live to tell Your story
There’s so much love that I just can’t contain it
I’ve gotta take it to my world (I’ve gotta take it to my world – end)                 

Good news for all the earth
I carry in my heart
The story of Your Son
Whose made a way for us

I will go out, I will go into my world
They’ve got to know, they’ve got to know x2
