Drops In The Ocean Lyrics

I want you as you are, not as you ought to be
Won’t you lay down your guard and come to me
The shame that grips you now is crippling
It breaks my heart to see you suffering

Cause I am for you
I’m not against you

If you want to know
How far my love can go
Just how deep, just how wide
If want to see
How much you mean to me
Look at my hands, look at my side
If you could count the times I say you are forgiven
It’s more than the drops in the ocean

Don’t think you need to settle for a substitute
When I’m the only love that changes you

Open your heart
It’s time that we start again

  • Veteran says:

    I’m going through some old stuff from the Iraq war and this song spoke to my heart tonight as I work to open my heart to healing from the war in counseling. I loved the phrase “Open your heart, it’s time that we start again” as well as “Lay down your guard and come to me”. I know with Christ ALL things are possible, and I’m claiming victory over the dullness and numbing to my emotion and self as a result of being a soldier in a time of war.

      We’ll be praying for you at Life 102.5 I can’t imagine what you must be going through. I hear the hope and perseverance in your words. Thank you so much for sharing.
