"My Portion" Lyrics [edit]
by Shai Linne | from the album The Solus Christus Project
 

Verse 1

It makes sense that I should write this song
Itís been a while now since you turned the light switch on
And so powerfully opened up my eyes to see
Reality, now Iím free (check it out)
Reminisce on my Christ-less days
Evidence- my life and ways
It was like I was forever bent
I lived a life of decadence
Then you sovereignly intervened and Iíve been on your team ever since
I was saved and am being saved- present tense
And will be saved from the deadly pestilence
Your holiness got me worshipping You with reverence
Youíre infinite and transcendent- yet with friends
Your love letter, the Old and New Testaments
Also the Christianís best defense-It speaks of Christ, who was heaven sent
Forgive us for ever being negligent or hesitant to represent His excellence
The world chases after the cars with better tints
Your people long after Your glory- a better glimpse
The Author of my faith, praise Your marvelous grace
The type I can call and embrace when I fall on my face
So Iím lifting up my hands and Iím raising my voice
Even though the world thinks I made the craziest choice
They can laugh all they want, Lord, I do not care
And I donít want to go to Heaven if God is not there

Hook:
Whom have I in Heaven but You?
And earth has nothing I desire but You
My flesh and my heart may fail however
The Lord is my portion forever

Verse 2

The penalty for my sin deflected- so glad Iíve been elected
I spread my hands out to my Savior as I genuflected
And then reflected on Christ, the globe spinner
(You) turned this out-of-control sinner into a soul winner
I canít take credit for it- Youíre too holy
I didnít choose you, Lord, you chose me
The actual situation is ever since my youth
My natural inclination was to resist your truth
I was dead you said ďLive!Ē
Now youíre teaching me to love you for who You are and not just what You give
Itís so divine- to maintain through the pain
It blows my mind how You came the way You came
Not a conquering hero, but a Suffering Servant
Lord, You died for a zero who doesnít deserve it
You take shady dudes who hate the truth- Give them faith in You
Make them new creations too- All praises due
So praise Him- donít hesitate from the right to left
Just thank Him and meditate on His life and death
Resurrected and exalted- forever so high
And why He chose me I might never know why
But Iím lifting up my hands and Iím raising my voice
Even though the world thinks I made the craziest choice
They can mock all they want Lord I do not care
And I donít want to go to Heaven if God is not there.

Hook:

Whom have I in Heaven but You?
And earth has nothing I desire but You
My flesh and my heart may fail however
The Lord is my portion forever

Bridge:
You could give me the Lex, the coupe, the Beamer, the Benz
The sex, the loot, the Cream or the ends
But next to the truth of Jesus, friends

itís worth nothing (repeat)

Verse 3

And Lord, donít let me get caught up in my own tapes
I saw what happened when Noah got drunk off His own grapes
So many ways to stumble- many boastful and loud
The Lord gives grace to the humble and opposes the proud
The Holy Spiritís a great deposit; my life- He stabilized it
Today the object is to stay in the prayer closet
And when I come out, may they know that the Master lives in me
Through passion for ministry and loving sacrificially
No matter what, Lord, wean me off of the world
Canít believe I found the costliest pearl (it's crazy)
For the glory of your name Iíve been made your own
By your grace justified through faith alone
Thatís why Iím lifting up my hands and Iím raising my voice
Even though the world thinks I made the craziest choice
They can laugh all they want Lord- I do not care
And I donít want to go to Heaven if God is not there



Hook:

Whom have I in Heaven but You?
And earth has nothing I desire but You
My flesh and my heart may fail however
The Lord is my portion forever
