Legacy by Nichole Nordeman
I don't mind if you've got something nice to say about me And I enjoy an accolade like the rest You could take my picture and hang it in a gallery Of all who's who and so-n-so's that used to be the best At such'n'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 lengthly 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
Not well traveled, not well read, not well-to-do or well bred Just want to hear instead, "Well Done" good and faithful one...
This is the song that Me and Christie chose to do for tomorrow's banquet. We really felt that this was the perfect fight, that best exemplifies the Legacy program. Although we had the great opportunity of being in this program, the heart behind it was not for us to be exulted but for us to be good servants to God. This song talks about how its not about the fame and glory, but about the heart behind it all.
