Version:

I'VE THROWN IT ALL AWAY
That I might gain a life in You
I've found all else is loss
Compared to the joys of knowing You
Your beauty and Your majesty
Are far beyond compare
You've won my heart
Now this will be my prayer

Take the world but give me Jesus
You're the treasure in this life
Take the world but give me Jesus
Is my cry
Now I've seen You as the Savior
I will leave the rest behind
Take the world but give me Jesus
Is my cry


Into the world I'll go
That I might live this life of love
I won't be overcome
For You are in me and You are strong
For time and for eternity
I know I'm in Your care
You've won my heart
Now this will be my prayer

Matt Redman
