There you are, here I am
Dere’s my heart, morning star
Darkness ends, where you begin
The pain in the hope, the rain you know
Cause you are higher than high
But made lower than low
Lord you ransomed my life
And you’ll reap what you’ve sown
You spoke to the void and now here I stand
Your sacrifice, the master’s plan
Your sacrifice, the master’s plan
Lord you hear me
You’re near me
Your grace is
Master's Plan Lyrics
