Counted The Cost Lyrics- Cory Asbury

Counted The Cost Lyrics
Cory Asbury

I’ve counted the cost
I count it all as loss
For the sake of knowing You

I peel my hands away from earthly things
God, I turn my eyes away from all these worthless things
I lay down honor and fame, I’m sick of building my own name
Lord, let everything I do be for Your glory and Your fame
Don’t wanna be building castles outta sand ’cause I know they won’t stand
In the wake of the judgment set to come from Your hand
When all wood hay and stubble will be burned away
Cause’ all flesh is fading fast, only Your word remains

I’ve counted the cost
I count it all as loss
For the sake of knowing You

So until the day
When I’ll see You face to face
I’ll be taking up my cross

I say goodbye to my father, my mother
I cling to You and You alone I’ll have no other
God, this one thing I do, I leave it all behind
Cause’ You said if I searched then it’s You that I would find
I fight the fight of faith, I run the race
Just give me grace that I could seek Your face
So until the day that I die, I’ll be living my life
So in the end when You return I’ll obtain the prize

I’ve counted the cost
I count it all as loss
For the sake of knowing You

So until the day
When I’ll see You face to face
I’ll be taking up my cross

I lay it all down
That I’d be found
A pleasing sacrifice

‘Cause I’m living for another day
Yeah I’m living for another age
Your kingdom come on earth

One day He’s gonna’ split the sky and
One day He’s gonna’ come for His bride
I know it, I know it, I know it, oh, oh, oh, oh
[x4]

I’ve counted the cost
I count it all as loss
For the sake of knowing You

So until the day
When I’ll see You face to face
I’ll be taking up my cross
