Time is short (King of this heart)

Time is too short to say it's okay
To think I can live this way
For just another day
So I'll search through the night
For the One my heart loves
Won't stop 'til I've found You
For Lord I need to hold You close

Be the King of this heart again
Be the King of this life
In my soul there's a cry today
Be the King of this heart
Be the King of this heart always

I've stood in the desert and thirsted for You
I've run through the city now I won't let go
I'm throwing myself on Your mercy O God
You say it's all or nothing
I'm saying Jesus have it all

Be the light for my eyes
Be the strength for my feet
Be the love of my soul
Be my ev'rything
Be my day and my night
When I wake when I sleep
Undivided my heart will be
