I Know Your Arms Are Open Wide

I know Your arms are open wide
Father in I run with my whole life
And I sing to You an offering
The very best that I could bring
You deserve much more than I could give

I'd never heard a sweeter voice
Lord You made my aching heart rejoice
Did angels in Your presence sing
And all the courts of heaven ring
When You called my name
When You called my name
When You called my name

It's like You whispered in my ear
When You saved my soul and brought me near
That now I am found and I am Yours
And true it's You my heart adores
I cry out with all that is within me
