Empty Hands Lyrics – 7eventh Time Down

Verse 1:
All my trinkets and meaningless treasure
All my trophies, I lift it up high
All your mercy that I’ve tried to measure
Bringin’ my ego, bringin’ my pride
All my good deeds and best of intentions
My collection of withering crowns
All the stuff that won’t get Your attention
I’m layin’ it down, layin’ it down

Chorus:
I got nothing good to bring worthy of a King
All I have for You is empty hands
I trust and I believe, I’m ready to receive
God, I’m liftin’ up these empty hands
Hands

Verse 2:
Why do I keep on holdin’ these pebbles
When I know that I need to let go?
I don’t wanna miss out on Your blessing
Clinging to rocks when You’re givin’ me gold
Just a word of humble repentance
Touched the heart of the One who could save
Once a criminal facing a sentence
But everything changed because of Your grace

Chorus:
I got nothing good to bring worthy of a King
All I have for You is empty hands
I trust and I believe, I’m ready to receive
God, I’m liftin’ up these empty hands
Hands

Bridge:
Raised high as I can raise
Raised high to the One who saves
Forever and always
Raise high Your praise

Chorus:
That’s all that I can bring worthy of a King
All I have for You is empty hands
I trust and I believe, I’m ready to receive
God, I’m liftin’ up these empty hands
Empty hands
Empty hands
Empty hands
