Legacy Lyrics

I don't mind if you've got something nice to say about me

And I enjoy an accolade like the rest

 

And you can take my picture and hang it in a gallery

Of all the who's who's and so-and-so's

 

That used to be the best at such and such

 

It wouldn't matter much

 

I won't lie it feels alright to see your name in lights

We all need an atta boy or atta girl

 

But in the end I'd like to hang my hat on more besides

 

The temporary trappings of this world

 

I want to leave a legacy

 

How will they remember me

 

Did I choose to love

 

Did I point to You enough

 

To make a mark on things

I want to leave an offering

 

A child of mercy and grace

 

Who blessed Your name unapologetically

 

And leave that kind of legacy

 

I don't have to look too far or too long awhile

 

To make a lengthy list of all that I enjoy

 

It's an accumulating trinket and a treasure pile

 

Where moth and rust thieves and such will soon

Enough destroy

 

I want to leave a legacy

 

How will they remember me

 

Did I choose to love

 

Did I point to You enough

To make a mark on things

I want to leave an offering

 

A child of mercy and grace

Who blessed Your name unapologetically

 

And leave that kind of legacy

 

Not well-traveled not well-read

Not well-to-do or well-bred

 

I just want to hear instead

Well done good and faithful one

 

I want to leave a legacy

How will they remember me

Did I choose to love

Did I point to You enough

To make a mark on things

I want to leave an offering

A child of mercy and grace

Who blessed Your name unapologetically

And leave that kind of legacy

 

I don't mind if you've got something nice to say about me
