Building Idols in a Fallen World

Hair of gold, and eyes of blue

They said he looked just like me.

I poured my heart into loving him,

His face was all I could see.

You’re the very same God that has given me life

And You gave him as a gift to me.

But I broke your heart when I put him first,

I was blind but now I see.

I was,

 

(Chorus) 

Building Idols in a fallen world,

Putting people, places, things before You.

Trying to get my satisfaction from another,

Wondering why my hopes and dreams weren’t coming true.

Now I don’t know why I wasn’t putting You first,

You held in the palm of Your hand, but I was

Building idols in a fallen world,

Instead of building faith in Your plan.

 

I was looking for a knight in shining white armor

To come riding up on his big ole horse.

Wanting Mr. Perfect to rescue me,

Broken hearts became a matter of course.

Kept waiting for a man to solve all of my problems

All I found was Mr. Wrong.

But when I found You I was made complete,

I was weak, but now I’m strong. 

Now I’m not,

 

(Chorus)

Building idols in a fallen world

Or putting people, places, things before You.

Not trying to get my satisfaction from another,

All my hope and dreams are coming true in You.

Now I don’t know why I waited so long,

You’ve always been there for me, Instead of

Building idols in a fallen world,

I’m building up Your presence in me.

 

Building idols in a fallen world,

We’re lost and desperate and alone.

Storing up treasures and working all day,

We try to make it on our own.

But when we put you first Oh Lord,

We finally find our way back home.  Stop

Building idols in a fallen world,

And He’ll lead you on the way back home.

You’ll finally find your way back home.

You’ll finally find your way back home.
