A Perfect Life
(A Song)

I know the only perfect living I can ever do

Will be because Iím hidden in the holiness of You;

But, if I could exist alone and live a perfect way,

When sunset comes and I wake up to live that endless day...



IíD GIVE A PERFECT LIFE TO YOU;

IíD SHOW YOU BLEST IN ALL I DO;

SUCH A GLORIOUS GIFT WITHOUT A MAR -

YOUíD SEE IT SHINE FROM NEAR OR FAR -

OH, IíD LOVE TO GIVE A SPOTLESS LIFE TO YOU...

BUT ITíS SOMETHING I KNOW I COULD NEVER DO...



So, early on, from childhood days, I learned to praise and sing;

I heard about the lambs that made atonement to the King;

Then I saw upon a barren hill, the cross of Calvary -

There I saw the only Lamb that could hide my misery....



SO NOW I GIVE A PERFECT LIFE TO YOU;

THE OFFERING FROM A SELF MADE NEW;

WHEN THAT CRIMSON FLOW FELL OíER ME LIKE A FLOOD -

I DONíT UNDERSTAND PURE WHITE FROM DEEP, RED BLOOD -

BUT I LOVE TO GIVE A SPOTLESS LIFE TO YOU!

AND ITíS MINE TO OFFER - MINE TO BE - BRAND NEW!

BECAUSE IíM HIDDEN IN YOUR GIFT OF LOVE -

HIDDEN DEEP WITHIN YOUR HEARTíS STRONG CRIMSON BLOOD...



The blood that Jesus shed for me...Way back on Calvary,

The blood that gives me strength, from day to day,

It will never lose its power...
