The Song I'm Singing Today

Every thing I’ve ever wanted
Only held me back from what I see in You
The wonders of Your love are far beyond
What any one could own or do

If I tried all through forever
I could never earn the treasure that’s in store
But now standing in Your righteousness
I reach in faith and cry to You for more

That I may know You
And the power of Your resurrection
That I may know You
The communion of Your sufferings gladly shared
That I may know You
And the Life that’s flowing from Your crucifixion
That I may know You
Until in heaven I will see You there

No one on this earth, except a fool
Would try to say that they’ve arrived
My goal can not be reached
As long as this old sinful flesh remains alive
Still I leave the past behind
Like a runner with a prize that lies ahead
And I press onward toward the goal
The upward call, the resurrection from the dead

That I may know You
And the power of Your resurrection
That I may know You
The communion of Your sufferings gladly shared
That I may know You
Life that’s flowing from Your crucifixion
That I may know You
Until in heaven I will see You there

Higher up!
I hear Your Word of power call me higher
Further in!
The comfort of Your Spirit calms my fears
Higher up!
To live with You is all my heart’s desire
Further in!
Your heart of love forever draws me near

That I may know You
And the power of Your resurrection
That I may know You
The communion of Your sufferings gladly shared
That I may know You
And the Life that’s flowing from Your crucifixion
That I may know You
Until in heaven I will see You there
That I may know You
Until in heaven I will see You there
(Don Francisco)

Thank You, Father, for allowing me into Your presence this morning. Thank You for making a way for me to know You. I know that it is a privilege that came at a high, high price. A price that I will never fully comprehend but will spend eternity thanking You for.
