More Than Life 

Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.” Psalm 63:3

(Send as an Inspirational Christian eCard

More than life itself

Is how much I love You;

My love for You, my Lord,

Motivates all I do.


Every word I speak,

May it be for Your glory;

Every conversation,

May it tell Your story.


Every breath I take,

Every beat of my heart,

To the midnight,

From the morning start,


From the high mountain,

To the depths of the valley,

From the desert sands,

To the splashing sea,


May I glorify You, Jesus,

In all things, always;

Let me glorify You, Lord,

Today and all my days.


For what can be sweeter

Than to live life for You?

What can be grander

Than to walk Your way true?


When tears are falling,

When I laugh and smile,

May I give glory to You

In all things all the while.


This is my prayer, Lord,

Yea, this is my desire:

Make me entirely Yours,

Dwell within me as a fire.


Your will make my own,

Your steps make mine,

For I am but a branch,

You are the eternal Vine.


Should for but a moment

Of You I lose sight,

Pull me close to Your heart,

Guide me with Your light.


Pull me entirely

Into Your sweet grace;

Pull me completely

Into Your warm embrace.


For I am Yours always,

You are the Reason for all I do;

Yes, Jesus, more than life itself

Is how much I love You.
