Knowing Jesus

All I once held dear, built my life upon
All this world reveres and wars to own
All I once thought gain I have counted loss
Spent and worthless now compared to this

Knowing You, Jesus, knowing You
There is no greater thing
You’re my all, You’re the best
You’re my joy, my righteousness
And I love You Lord

Now my heart’s desire is to know You more
To be found in You and know as Yours
To possess by faith what I could not earn
All surpassing gift of righteousness
Oh to know the power of Your risen life
And to know You in Your sufferings
To become like You in Your death, my Lord
So with You to live and never die


Tonight this song plays in my mind.   Especially the final verse.   I remember when i first heard this song back around 1999 – 2000.  My walk with the Lord was young and i had not been exposed to many of the religious systems that attempt to bring us into bondage.   Nothing but the pure grace and love of God.   Knowing that in this life I had been brought back into fellowship with the eternal God and made his son.  The Spirit of His Son in my heart crying “Abba! Father!!”

This has not changed, over time my desires have waxed and waned but God in His faithfulness has continued to restore me and breathe life into me.   Whether it is death or life, past or present, heigth or depth, at the bottom of all abides the desire and passion to know Jesus.

Spread the love
