Our culture is obsessed with reality makeover shows and the outward appearance of beauty. But before we makeover the external, it's so much more important to look at what's happening in our spirits. At the time I wrote this song, I was desperate for a spiritual makeover, and so this is my way of expressing that need-it's my heartfelt prayer.
I've been silent instead of speaking up Gave my advice instead of giving love I have been unfair, faithless and unkind I have shut my eyes just so I would stay blind It's not what I'm meant to do Cause I wanna honor You
Make me over, make me new Make me a mirror, a reflection of You Take me all apart, take me to Your heart And pull me closer Oh Jesus, make me over
Take away the pride that whispers in the dark Take the stone out of the middle of my heart Hidden underneath my insecurities Is the servant that You've destined me to be Day after precious day I get in my own way
So make me over, make me new Make me a mirror, a reflection of You Take me all apart, take me to Your heart And pull me closer Sweet Savior, make me over
I am only made of Your imagining I'm dust and clay on the wind Wash me in the river of Your sacrifice Until I'm changed, purified
Take me all apart, take me to Your heart And pull me closer My Jesus, make me over
