"THE KING'S PROPOSAL"

Verse 1
Like a princess in a tower walled about,
I lock my doors to keep my inner fears without.
But the key to every heart is on the ring
Of the Keeper of the Kingdom and the King.

I'm amazed you sent a Messenger of Peace,
And when I read Your Words of love You've written me,
Somehow my hurting heart believes it can trust,
And these walls of stone will crumble with Your promised touch,

Chorus 1
So, here's my stony heart! [Here's my door!]
Welcome to my secrets and my inner-longings.
Here my heart surrenders to Your fire;
[Here my heart surrenders.]
Fill it with your love until it all belongs to You.

Verse 2
Oh, You speak of such a perfect love for me;
It's too great a thing for me to understand.
I'm just a beggar and a child, and You're a King,
But You say You're waiting just to take my hand.

I'm in rags, and You're in crimson filled with light.
I'm unworthy even to hope You'd care for me.
But You will take me now, just as I am;
And You say there will be love enough to keep me Yours,

[Repeat Chorus 1]

Chorus 2
So, here, I lift my heart, [in my hands;]
Here, I show my need and great desire for You;
Here, I pledge my love and my life,
[Here I pledge my love.]
And I promise to be Yours, and You'll be mine forever.
