GUEST,Mike Lyr Req: Empty to be Filled (8) RE: Lyr Req: Empty to be Filled 09 Nov 12


Song is titled "Father". Was sung by Terry Talbot on his 1978 album "A Time to Laugh, A Time to Sing"

The alabaster case of oil was opened
and washing the feet of Jesus.
The sweet perfume was poured.
I am like the cask I must be broken
so from my heart will flow a life unto my Lord.

CHORUS:   Father break me. Take me through the fire.
Oh Father hold me, mold me, just as You desire.
I am just a cup to overflow Your will, but I know I must be empty to be filled.

I saw myself as only drifting.
Lost upon the water. Sinking like a stone.
But then Your tide washed around me. I was lifted.
If I follow the Morning Star I'll be sailing home.

CHORUS:   Father break me. Take me through the fire.
Oh Father hold me, mold me, just as You desire.
I am just a cup to overflow Your will, but first I must be empty to be filled
