The More I Seek You

Heard this song at my small group meeting on Monday. Actually, I like the version they played better than this one, since they played it with guitars, and a bongo, and they played it at a little faster tempo. Plus they used multiple voices. I was scheduled to lead worship this week at work, and I was trying to figure out what songs we should do. This was the first time I had ever heard the song, but the song moved me so much, I thought “we gotta do it!” This feeling was confirmed by my partner, since when I told her about the song, she was like, “I love that song!”

Unfortunately, this is the best version I can find on youtube:

I want to feel God’s heart beat. Previously I would say, “I want to see God’s face,” but I like the heart beat idea better. While I still want to see God’s face, I think it would be even more amazing to feel his heart beat. I think even demons could see God’s face – and then be thrown into hell. But to hear God’s heart beat means to be up close next to him, laying on his chest the way a child does to his Father.  I think only God’s children get to be that close to him.

We Will Glorify

 

We will glorify the King of kings
We will glorify the Lamb
We will glorify the Lord of lords
Who is the great I AM
Lord Jehovah reigns in majesty
We will bow before His throne
We will worship Him in righteousness
We will worship Him alone
He is Lord of heaven, Lord of earth
He is Lord of all who live
He is Lord above the universe
All praise to Him we give
Hallelujah to the King of kings
Hallelujah to the Lamb
Hallelujah to the Lord of Lords
Who is the great I AM

Beautiful, Scandalous Night

Go on up to the mountain of mercy
To the crimson perpetual tide
Kneel down on the shore
Be thirsty no more
Go under and be purified

Follow Christ to the holy mountain
Sinner sorry and wrecked by the fall
Cleanse your heart and soul
In the fountain that flowed
For you and for me and for all

CHORUS:
At the wonderful, tragic, mysterious tree
On that beautiful, scandalous night you and me
Were atoned by His blood and forever washed white
On that beautiful, scandalous night

On the hillside, you will be delivered
At the foot of the cross justified
And your spirit restored
By the river that poured
From our blessed Savior’s side

CHORUS

Go on up to the mountain of mercy
To the crimson perpetual tide
Kneel down on the shore
Be thirsty no more
Go under and be purified
