For Your Splendor - Christy Nockels

I'm so concerned with what I look like from the outside
Will I blossom into what You hope I'll be
Yet You're so patient just to help me see
The blooms come from a deeper seed that You planted in me

Sometimes it's hard to grow when everybody's watching
To have your heart pruned by the one who knows best
And though I'm bare and cold I know my season's coming
And I'll spring up in Your endless faithfulness

With my roots deep in You I'll grow the branch that bears the fruit
And though I'm small, I'll still be standing in the storm
'Cause I am planted by the river by Your streams of living water
And I'll grow up strong and beautiful, all for Your splendor, Lord

So with my arms stretched out, I'm swaying to Your heartbeat
I'm growing with the sound of Your voice calling
You're bringing out the beauty that You have put in me
For Your joy and for Your glory falling
