I only need to be Intentional In God’s Intention: Listen to ‘Control’ by Tenth Avenue North

“What if I told you God doesn’t need you, He wants you?” asks Mike Donehey of Tenth Avenue North when talking about their No. 1 song “Control” from their 2016 album Followers (buy). “What if I told you that your loveliness to God doesn’t rise and fall with your usefulness to God? God doesn’t need us to be successful, He wants us to be surrendered.”

In November 2016, Tenth Avenue North debuted the video for their No. 1 Billboard Christian Airplay song, “Control.” This is the band’s third career Billboard Christian Airplay No. 1 radio single and 12th Top Ten radio single.

 

 

 

 

Control (Lyrics):

Here I am
All my intentions
All my obsessions
I want to lay them all down
In Your hands
Only Your love is vital
Though I’m not entitled
Still You call me Your child

God You don’t need me
But somehow You want me
Oh, how You love me
Somehow that frees me
To take my hands off of my life
And the way it should go

God You don’t need me
But somehow You want me
Oh, how You love me
Somehow that frees me
To open my hands up
And give You control
I give You control

I’ve had plans
Shattered and broken
Things I have hoped in
Fall through my hands
You have plans
To redeem and restore me
You’re behind and before me
Oh, help me believe

God You don’t need me
But somehow You want me
Oh, how You love me
Somehow that frees me
To take my hands off of my life
And the way it should go, oh

God You don’t need me
But somehow You want me
Oh, how You love me
Somehow that frees me
To open my hands up
And give You control

Oh, You want me
Somehow You want me
The King of Heaven wants me
So this world has lost it’s grip on me

Oh, You want me
Somehow You want me
The King of Heaven wants me
So this world has lost it’s grip on me

God You don’t need me
But somehow You want me
Oh, how You love me
Somehow that frees me
To take my hands off of my life
And the way it should go, oh

God You don’t need me
But somehow You want me
Oh, how You love me
Somehow that frees me
To open my hands up
And give You control
I give You control

Oh, give You control
Oh, I want to give You control
I give You control

You want me
Somehow You want me
The King of Heaven wants me
So this world has lost it’s grip on me
