Offering
 
From the album Home
Words: Julie de Azevedo
Music: Brett Raymond

In my hand I hold a penny
Tarnished and so small
I know it’s a meager offering
But it is my all
In return You build me mansions
Palaces and thrones
I’m offering a piece of rusty copper
You’re offering streets of gold
In my hand a bead of water
Salty frail teardrop
I know it’s a meager offering
But it’s all I’ve got
In return You send me oceans
Downpour feeds the flood
I’m offering a tiny fallen droplet
You’re drenching me with love
In my hand a blackened stone
Cold hard heap of coal
I know it’s a meager offering
But it is my soul
In return You drape me in diamonds
Gems so rare and round
I’m offering a roughened rock unpolished
You’re fitting me a crown
In my hand I hold a candle
Tiny fragile spark
I know it’s a meager offering
But it is my heart
In return Your summer sunshine
Winter is undone
I’m offering a flicker in the darkness
You’re offering the sun
I’m offering a flicker in the darkness
You’re offering the sun
You’re offering the Son
 
 
Window to His Love
 
From the album State of the Heart
Words and music: Julie de Azevedo

I want to be a window to His love
So when you look at me you will see Him
I want to be so pure and clear
That you won’t even know I’m here
’Cause His love will shine brightly through me
 
I want to be a doorway to the truth
So when you walk beyond you will find Him
I want to stand so straight and tall
That you won’t notice me at all
But through my open door He will be seen
 
Chorus
A window to His love
A doorway to the truth
A bearer of the message
He’d have me bring to you
And with each passing day
I want to fade away
’Til only He can be seen
And I become a window to His love
 
I want to be a window to His love
So you can look through me and you’ll see Him
And someday shining through the glass
You’ll see His loving countenance
’Cause I will have become like He is
 
Chorus
 
A doorway to the truth
A bearer of the message
He’d have me bring to you
And with each passing year
I want to disappear
’Til He’s become everything
And I’ve become a window to His love
