Music Monday: "Your Heart"

I like a lot of Christian musicians, and one of them that I enjoy listening to is Chris Tomlin. I recently purchased a compilation album called, "Music Inspired by The Story". All of the songs on the CD are based on a character in the Bible, to go along with a book by Max Lucado (a Christian author that I sometimes enjoy!) I have been LOVING the whole CD! It is filled with meaningful, picturesque lyrics and a variety of music types, as well as many different singers lending their voices to the project. You can read more about The Story music here. You may have heard a song on the radio from this CD, called "I'm with You" sung by Amy Grant and Nichole Nordeman. I enjoy that song too, since I enjoy Amy and Nichole as Christian music artists.

The lyrics (for all songs) were written by Nichole Nordeman and this song is sung by Chris Tomlin. "Your Heart" is the song about King David. The chorus is based on this verse:

Acts 13:22 (NIV)

After removing Saul, he made David their king. God testified concerning him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.’

Below are the lyrics to this powerful song. I hope you'll take a minute to listen to it, following the link below the lyrics.

Your Heart- Chris TomlinIt never was about the oil dripping from my head
I never did dream beyond the pastures I could tend
It never was about the praise, not about the street parade
I didn’t really need a crowd when Goliath fell down

I never meant to woo a king with simple shepherd songs
Or hide away inside a cave, safe from danger’s arms
I never meant to wear a crown, or try to bring armies down
It never was about me and who I hoped to be

At the end of the day, I wanna hear people say
My heart looks like Your heart, my heart looks like Your heart
When the world looks at me, let them agree
That my heart looks like Your heart, my heart looks like Your heart

I never thought I would be much more than Jesse’s kin
Who would ever dream a king would come from Bethlehem?
I know that I’ve crashed and burned, lives have been overturned
But You redeem everything, yeah, even me

At the end of the day, I want to hear people say
That my heart looks like Your heart, my heart looks like Your heart
When the world looks at me, I pray all they see
Is my heart looks like Your heart, my heart looks like Your heart

Five little stones, or a royal robe
Shepherd or king doesn’t mean a thing
At the end of the day

At the end of the day, I wanna hear people say
That my heart looks like Your heart, my heart looks like Your heart
Unashamed I will dance, In Your name, lift my hands
‘Til my heart looks like Your heart, my heart looks like Your heart 

Chris Tomlin / Nordeman/Bernie Herms (arr.)
