I wasted a rescue
Abandoned the mission
I've failed by my own hand
And watched it all go wrong
You said You could save me
That I couldn't save myself
You said that You loved me
No matter what I've done

When the light is gone
And life is just a dare we take
Still the fight goes on
To give my heart away

And it's out of my hands
It was from the start
In light of what You've done for me
In light of what You've done for me
You lifted my head
Set me apart
In light of what You've done for me
This is what You've done for me
It's out of my hands (out of my hands)

You grow where the light is
Like trees in the highlands
We're bent by our own plans
To keep us in the dark

And I act like an orphan
Forget that You found me
But You came like a whisper
And saved me with a spark

When the light is gone
And life is just a dare we take
Still the fight goes on and on
To give my heart away

And it's out of my hands (out of my hands)
It was from the start (was from the start)
In light of what You've done for me (no matter what you've done)
In light of what You've done for me (no matter what you've done)
You lifted my head (lifted my head)
Set me apart (set me apart)
In light of what You've done for me (light of what you've done)
This is what You've done for me (this is what you've done)
It's out of my hands (out of my hands)
It's out of my hands (out of my hands)

There's nothing in the world that I can offer
Nothing in the world that I can stand apart
Apart from You
Apart from You
There's nothing in my life
Nothing in my life that You haven't given to me

It's out of my hands
It was from the start
In light of what You've done
In light of what You've done
You lifted my head (lifted my head)
Set me apart (you set me apart)
In light of what You've done (light of what you've done)
In light of what You've done for me

Oh, it's out of my hands (it's out of my hands)
It was from the start (was from the start)
In light of what You've done for me (light of what you've done)
In light of what You've done for me (light of what you've done)
You lifted my head (lifted my head)
Set me apart (set me apart)
In light of what You've done for me (light of what you've done)
This is what You've done for me (this is what you've done)

It's out of my hands (out of my hands)
It's out of my hands
Everything I have, Lord (out of my hands)
Everything I have
It's out of my hands (out of my hands)
It's out of my hands

Oh, it's out of my hands
