“Take Me As I Am”
Words and Music by Ryan Newcomb

This is not the end of my road,
But my heart has said that it cannot go on,
Yes, I’ve traveled a thousand miles,
But I feel so far away from my home,

I’ve wandered over hill and valley,
I’ve sailed the waves out on the sea,
But this journey has taken its toll,
On every single part of me,
Because I don’t know where I’m headed,
And I don’t know how I got to where I am now,
And judging from the darkness up ahead,
I see no reason to think that I’ll figure it out,

So, take me as I am,
Lay me at Your feet,
Hold me in Your arms,
Find the good in me,
‘Cause I feel so far from the touch of Your hand,
So, reach a little farther, Lord,
And take me as I am,

I’ve often wondered why I should move a mountain,
If there’s just another one waiting on the other side,
It’s a simple truth my mustard seed of a heart,
Has failed to find,
Because I don’t know where I’m headed,
And I don’t know how I got to where I am now,
And judging from the darkness up ahead,
I see no reason to think that I’ll figure it out,

So, take me as I am,
Lay me at Your feet,
Hold me in Your arms,
Find the good in me,
‘Cause I feel so far from the touch of Your hand,
Just reach a little farther, Lord,
And take me as I am,

‘Cause I believe that I have nothing I can give,
Nothing that’s of worth,
But, Lord, You’ve asked for nothing more,
That every single part of this man that I hold inside,
So take me as I am,
Lay me at Your feet,
Hold me in Your arms,
Find the good in me,

Take me as I am,
Lay me at Your feet,
Hold me in Your arms,
Find the good in me,
‘Cause I feel so far from the touch of Your hand,
So reach a little farther, Lord,
And take me as I am,

Reach a little farther, Lord,
And take me as I am.
