Lyrics: When I Praise

When I Praise
by FFH

Looking for love and I lost my way
Another long night has turned to day
Nobody likes to feel this way
So I draw close to you
It’s what I’m supposed to do

Looking for love and I close my eyes
I run to you with no disguise
You hold me close and say “it’s fine”
You take me in your arms
And you soothe this heart of mine

And I throw my hands up in the air
Here’s my heart ’cause I don’t care
What they say about me, I gotta praise
I throw my hands up in the air
And I know that You will find me there
Find me when I praise

Looking for love and I hide my face (Looking for love and I hide my face)
What about the scars and disgrace (Should I hide my disgrace)
But You meet me here in spite of my shame
Your blood covers it all
And You carry me away

And I throw my hands up in the air
Here’s my heart ’cause I don’t care
What they say about me, I gotta praise
I throw my hands up in the air
And I know that You will find me there
Find me when I praise

My heart is on my sleeve and I am on my knees
And my hands are in the air, oh yeah
And it’s hard to believe that I am on my knees
With my hands in the air, oh yeah
And You come close beside me
And You say You’re here to guide me
I don’t ever have to be alone
And Your love has led me home

Looking for love and I found my way (Looking for love and I found my way)
I ran to You and I heard You say (I ran to You and I heard You say)
Everything’s gonna be OK
I don’t have to wait another day

And I throw my hands up in the air
Here’s my heart ’cause I don’t care
What they say about me, I gotta praise
I throw my hands up in the air
And I know that You will find me there

And I throw my hands up in the air
Here’s my heart ’cause I don’t care
What they say about me, I gotta praise
I throw my hands up in the air
And I know that You will find me there
Find me when I praise

Looking for love and I lost my way (Looking for love and I lost my way)
Another long night has turned to day (Another long night has turned to day)
Nobody likes to feel this way

These are the words that my heart’s crying out. I’m looking for love and I’ve lost my way. Nobody likes to feel this way. But God You hold me close and You say that no matter what, You’ll always love me. Lord, if You weren’t there for me, it’s really not worth my living. Thank You Lord for loving me when no one else does.
