Build My Life

Build My Life

Brett Younker, Karl Martin, Kirby Kable, Matt Redman, Pat Barrett


“These words I speak to you are not incidental additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundational words, words to build a life on. If you work these words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who built his house on solid rock. Rain poured down, the river flooded, a tornado hit—but nothing moved that house. It was fixed to the rock.”

– Matthew 7:24-25 (The Message)


Worthy of every song we could ever sing
Worthy of all the praise we could ever bring
Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe
We live for you
Jesus the name above every other name
Jesus the only one who could save
Worthy of every breath we could ever breathe
We live for you
Oh we live for you
Holy there is no one like you
There is none beside you
Open up my eyes in wonder
And show me who you are
And fill me with your heart
And lead me in love to those around me
And I will build my life upon your love it is a firm foundation
And I will put my trust in you alone and not retake it

The entire power of this song rests on the bridge. The confidence of the lyrics mixed with the soaring melody make for what we worship leaders are often looking for. This song serves as a stirring reminder of how we should be structuring our life. Whatever we set our lives within and around, none of it will last or matter if it isn’t set upon the firm foundation of Christ’s goodness. When singing this song, commit the base of your world, of single area of it, upon the sturdy ground of God’s love. -Matt Greene
