The only thing I want in life

is to be known for loving Christ.

To build His church, to love His bride

And make His name known far and wide.

For this cause I live. For this cause I’d die.

I surrender all for the cause of Christ.

All I once held dear I will leave behind

For my joy is this, oh the cause of Christ.

He is all my soul will prize regardless of the joy or trial.

When agonizing questions rise in Jesus all my hope abides.

For this cause I live. For this cause I’d die.

I surrender all for the cause of Christ.

All I once held dear I will leave behind.

For my joy is this, oh the cause of Christ.

Jesus, my Jesus

For your glory, for your name

Jesus, my Jesus

I will only sing your praise

For this cause I live. For this cause I’d die.

I surrender all for the cause of Christ.

All I once held dear I will leave behind

For my joy is this, oh the cause of Christ

For my joy is this, oh the cause of Christ

It is not fame that I desire, nor stature in my brother’s eye.

I pray it’s said about my life that I lived more to build your name than mine.
