"And the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their Shepherd. He will guide them to springs of living water; and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes." Revelation 7:17


[verse 1]
Gotta focus on what matters.
Gotta get back on track.
I spend way too much time
Concentrating on what I lack.
If I get lost in what I want,
Then I might not find my way back.

[chorus]
Magnify my comprehension.
Make it clear: Your intention.
You’re the center of my attention.
Save me from this condemnation.
And I’ll keep from the pretension
That I’m worthy of Your mention.

[verse 2]
Please keep my mind from wanderin’,
On You my eyes are based.
Keep those demons from this heart,
Which You have now replaced.
Don’t let them stop these feet from running,
Though I’m sick of being chased.


[bridge]
Will I get a second chance?
There is way too much suspense.
I am locked inside this trance:
Needing knowledge to enhance.
But still this misrepresents
Just how extremely intense
Is what I’ve received in advance:
What covers my offense.

[verse 3]
How is it I never saw You?
All my life I’ve been so blind.
But now I know that You were there,
And always working on my mind.
Now I’m Yours, do what You will.
Send me all the lost to find.

[chorus]
Magnify my comprehension.
Make it clear: Your intention.
You’re the center of my attention.
Save me from this condemnation.
And I’ll keep from the pretension
That I’m worthy of Your mention.
