Shall Not Want

Updated on January 5, 2014

Shall Not Want

Whatever this world says I need

Whatever this world gives to me

Let me leave it on the table

Put some distance in between

Take a walk with my Creator

Hear the voice that gives me peace

Brings an end to the confusion

holding me from sweet release


I shall not want, I shall not want


Whoever this world says I am

Wherever this world says to stand

Let me stay here, oh to not be moved

by wind or shifting sand


On this rock of my conviction

keep my feet from changing stance

take my heart in it's condition

beating for a second chance


Whatever this world says I need

Whatever this world gives to me

I shall not want, I shall not want

Whoever this world says I am

Wherever this world says to stand

I shall not want, I shall not.
