i have chosen you

I Have Chosen You       (Don Francisco)

 

Like a king who hides in shadows while a thief usurps his throne
You stumbled down through all your days without direction.
While the soldiers and the servants who should be at your command
Are all abandoned to surrender and defection.

As the kingdom groans beneath the load,
Your feet go running down the road
In panic you’ve forgotten all I’ve told you.
If you’ll just call you’d see Me there
At the very instant of your prayer
But you’ve bought a bill of goods the liar’s sold you.

I have chosen you
There’s no need to run away.
I have chosen you
Why do you doubt the words I say.
Through it all I’ve been right by your side.
Ask me and you will not be denied.

Like a slave who wears the collar of a hard and cruel man
And is convinced that he deserves the treetment given.
Tortured to believing nothing’s ever going to change
Till you’ve forgotten there was ever more to living.

But as you struggle with your load
The messengers come down the road
And the slaver flees in fear as he beholds them.
They break your chains and set you free
To stand amazed in liberty
And at last they give the word that God has told them.

I have chosen you
And I will not turn you down,
I have chosen you
You were born to wear a crown.
I’ll give you what you need to carry on
Till all that stands opposed to you is gone.

I have chosen you
And I will not turn you down,
I have chosen you
You were born to wear a crown.
Through it all I’ve been right by your side.
Ask me now, you will not be denied.
