The best

My old self has been crucified with Christ.
It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me
(Galatians 2:20; NLT).

1. Lord,
You are the best of me:
The only part that’s good.

2. Lord,
You are the best of me:
My flesh, and bone, and blood.

3. Lord,
You are the best of me:
My heart, and mind, and soul.

4. Lord,
You are the best of me:
The Christ, who makes me whole.
