Lyrics

Building Idols in a Fallen World
©Debbie Rice (BMI)


Hair of gold, and eyes of blue
They said he looked just like me.
I poured my heart into loving him,
His face was all I could see.

You're the very same God that has given me life
And You gave him as a gift to me.
But I broke your heart when I put him first,
I was blind but now I see.
I was,

(Chorus)
Building Idols in a fallen world,
Putting people, places, things before You.
Trying to get my satisfaction from another,
Wondering why my hopes and dreams weren't coming true.
Now I don't know why I wasn't putting You first,
You held me in the palm of Your hand, but I was
Building idols in a fallen world,
Instead of building faith in Your plan.

(v2)
I was looking for a knight in shining white armor
To come riding up on his big ole horse.
Wanting Mr. Perfect to rescue me,
Broken hearts became a matter of course.
Kept waiting for a man to solve all of my problems
All I found was Mr. Wrong.
But when I found You I was made complete,
I was weak, but now I'm strong.
Now I'm not,

(Chorus)
Building idols in a fallen world
Or putting people, places, things before You.
Not trying to get my satisfaction from another,
All my hope and dreams are coming true in You.
Now I don't know why I waited so long,
You've always been there for me, Instead of
Building idols in a fallen world,
I'm building up Your presence in me.



Building idols in a fallen world,
We're lost and desperate and alone.
Storing up treasures and working all day,
We try to make it on our own.
But when we put you first Oh Lord,
We finally find our way back home. Stop
Building idols in a fallen world,
And He'll lead you on the way back home.
You'll finally find your way back home.
You'll finally find your way back home.
