Lyrics:

The Greatest Gift
Music and Lyrics By: Jared Akers 11/2007

At the bottom lookin' up again
So this is how it's gonna end
I've been down this road before
Lockin' the world outside my door

Some have come to plead with me
This isn't how it has to be
How'd I get here once again
This is how it's always been

[CHORUS]
I was on knees when it came through
A mother's prayer loud and true
To the one she raised from an infant son
So out of reach from everyone
The Greatest Gift that a child can give
Is that their parents they outlive

Don't you worry no need to stay
I found an easier and softer way
I know you love me but it's time to go
This is just a one man show

[CHORUS]
I was on my knees when it came through
A mother's prayer loud and true
To the one she raised from an infant son
So out of reach from everyone
The Greatest Gift that a child can give
Is that their parents they outlive

It all comes down to one basic desire
Deep down in every man women and child
You'll never fix what is broken with the man behind the facade
Surrender to win and stop playin' God

[CHORUS]
I was on my knees when it came through
A mothers prayer loud and true
To the one she raised from an infant son
So out of reach from everyone
The Greatest Gift that a child can give
Is that their parents they outlive

On my knees lookin' up again
I surrender my will to him
I finally found what I was lookin' for
