Only You Alone

There are those who seek a gilded throne
They would store up treasure for their own
As for me, I will seek Your face
As for me, all I need is Your grace

Only You, alone, are forever
You dwell in unapproachable light
Only You, alone, can ever
Shine so high; shine so bright
Shine so high; shine so bright

Some will fall into their own desires
They would jump into the burning fire
As for me, I wait for You to reveal
The only life that's real

Only You, alone, are forever
You dwell in unapproachable light
Only You, alone, can ever
Shine so high; shine so bright
Shine so high; shine so bright

There are those who stare into the abyss
They are captured by temptation's kiss
As for me, I fight this fight of faith
I will reach for You always

Only You, alone, are forever
You dwell in unapproachable light
Only You, alone, can ever
Shine so high; shine so bright
Shine so high; shine so bright
Shine so high; shine so bright

Beautiful I really like the bluegrass tone. Great message.. Thanks

Mahalo, David!

like it...

Thank you, Jayson!

This is quite lovely...and with a real melody!  I love the lyrics too.  I would suggest considering replacing "alone" with "I AM."

"Alone" was already said:  Only.   "I AM" is God's personal name and fits nicely here.   Exod. 3:14.   I could be wrong :)  Lenny Smith

Mahalo, Lenny!  Thanks for the suggestion - I'll play with it and see - I kinda think that might be confusing to the ear, but I'll at least play with it a little!  I appreciate this!

Real Nice song!Good song writing!
