    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
