02. You Overwhelm Me

Born To Worship
by Sarah Kelly


You overwhelm me
Your goodness, Your kindness
You overwhelm me
Your faithfulness, Your mercy

Even in the morning Iíll praise You
I will put my trust in You

I come before You and lay down my crown
You are the King of my life
You lift my head and Iím blameless before You
You are the King of my life

You overwhelm me
Your nail scars, Your pierced side
You overwhelm me
the beauty of Your sacrifice

even in the night I will praise You
I will put my hope in You

I come before You and lay down my crown
You are the King of my life
You lift my head and Iím blameless before You
You are the King of my life

All glory, all honor, all mercy, all power
You are the King of Kings

Holy, holy, holy is the King of Kings

Behind the Song:
"This was the 2nd choir piece I ever wrote. The first version of this song was definitely more ballad Disney style and makes me laugh still, but give me a break I was 8 years old! Though I decided to leave most of the choir parts off for this recording, I know they will pop up in my future as they are too close to my heart to let go of completely. The story that inspired this song was the woman who reached out for Jesusí garment as he passed by her. (Mark 5:25-34) How absolutely shamed her life was, even though she did not probably deserve the lonely painful life that she had. I tried to catch the moment when she touched Jesus, and was instantly healed. That thought birthed the words "you lift my head and I'm blameless before you." I wrote the 2nd verse just this year, so this song is literally 20 years in the making! One of the most surreal and beautiful moments of divine purpose I have ever experienced was hearing this song sung by Alvin Slaughter and Phoenix First Assembly on a Sunday morning that I was just passing through. They didn't know who wrote it and I still don't know how they heard it, probably from a college student, because this was one of the favorite congregational songs I introduced in my 5 years as worship leader to a college group in Rockford, IL." - Sarah Kelly
