Nothing I Can Do

This song is by MercyMe and appears on the album Traces of Rain Vol. 1 (1997).

I'm so busy being busy
That there's just no time
To sit and listen awhile
For a rest, just for awhile
And I see it, oh I see it
But I'm not so sure
That I'm looking through Your eyes
Or through mine, let me rest awhile

I'm always trying to see
Something I'd rather see
Why can't I only see what You do

Cut the mask away
And step from the shade
Let the Son of God come
Shine upon my face
Trust the cross of Lord
That His love has been shown
And apart from You, Lord
There's nothing I can do
No, there's nothing I can do

Oh, we sing and we play
But we never think to
Take our masks away
We have needs, we all have pain
On the inside, deep on the inside
In the places where
Not too many get to see
Jesus waits to make you and me

We're all just trying to be
Someone we'd rather be
Why can't we all just be in You

Cut the mask away
And step from the shade
Let the Son of God come
Shine upon my face
Trust the cross of Lord
That His love has been shown
And apart from You, Lord
There's nothing I can do
No, there's nothing I can do
Nothing I can do
Nothing I can do

We're all just trying to be
Someone we'd rather be
Why can't we all just be in You
