Eggs In A Basket

When I was young
I heard it said
To be careful
And use your head
Donít put all your eggs
In one basket

Growing up I soon found
That advice
Was profound
One too many high hopes
Had been smashed by circumstance
Or broken by wrong choices
When I wanted just a chanceÖ

So here I am
With my basket
Made of human good intentions
Self reliance woven
Through years of broken dreams
And if it was a glove
Itíd be tearing at the seamsÖ
----------------------------
Main Chorus:
Oh Iím bringing all the eggs
I have collected
Faded, cracked and old
Iíve put them all in there
And Iím giving them to you
As I bow my head in prayerÖ
---------------------------
Long ago You wove
Your amazing Grace
Painted love in blood
When you died in my place
Filled the basket full
With promises you made
Healing, peace and joy
An undeserving tradeÖ
-------------------------
2nd Chorus:
And all I can do
Is kneel at your feet
Worship you Oh Lord
For my Savior Oh So Sweet
-------------------------
My existing shell
Colorless in hue
Crumbles with your touch
Your Holiness shines through
Create in me Lord
beauty that shall last
as I shine each day
forgiven of my past
------------
Main Chorus:
Oh Iím bringing all the eggs
I have collected
Faded, cracked and old
Iíve put them all in there
And Iím giving them to you
As I bow my head in prayerÖ
------------------
2nd Chorus:
And all I can do
Is kneel at your feet
Worship you Oh Lord
For my Savior Oh So Sweet
-----------------
(repeat 2nd chorus two times at end and fade out with I'm Bringing all the Eggs....)


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
