Come and Conquer My Heart!

6/25/2006

from a young lady here…

Hi : )

This is just a short song that was inspired by some time together over a year ago learning world history from some sisters… : ) We were talking about how a lot of European nations went in and took control of a lot of Africa in the 1800s and how the Africans fought back because, and this is the line that caught my attention, “It’s against human nature to just say, ‘come and conquer me!’” I scribbled that little line down on my notebook, thinking about how, yeah, that’s against human nature, but it’s what we NEED! “JESUS! Come and conquer my HEART!” i forgot about it after a while, until i came across it a couple months ago in my notebook… Anyway, this is what came of it : )

I’ve tried so hard

To fill this void inside

With things of this earth

But somehow looking at You

All of my dreams seem so worthless now

I only know when You looked in my eyes

I saw a Love like i’ve never seen before

Come, and conquer my heart

Take complete control

Take all that i am and

Come, and conquer my heart

I’m asking You

To fill my emptiness

Come, and conquer my heart

Take complete control

Take all that i am and

Come, my Conquering King

When i looked in Your eyes

They pierced right through

My gray clouded heart

Like a beam of sunshine

What can i say?

What can i do?

My heart’s desire is to be with You

And now i know i’ll never be the same

Come, and conquer my heart

Take complete control

Take all that i am and

Come, and conquer my heart

I’m asking You

To fill my emptiness

Come, and conquer my heart

Take complete control

Take all that i am and

Come, my Conquering King
