Knowing You, Jesus

Lots of people have asked about the new song we sang on Sunday. It's taken from an old song & some of our amazing songwriters added a bit to it.
Here are the lyrics:

Knowing You, Jesus

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

Knowing you, Jesus
Knowing you
There is no greater aim
In your presence here
My joy is found
There is no higher gain

Now my heart's desire is to know you more
To be found in you, and known as yours
To possess by faith what I could not earn
All surpassing gift of righteousness


Your love is higher
Your glory brighter
My hope is set on you
My greatest longing
Is found in knowing
My hope is set on you

Oh to know the power of your risen life
And to know you in your suffering
To become like you in your death my Lord
So with you to live and never die



  1. YES! Thank you! I know I can always count on your blog for lyrics to songs that aren't out yet. So helpful! Love worshipping with you on Sundays!

  2. God bless you!! what a wonderful song
    I heard it sang in VERGE 2013 and I was so excited to get the lyrics here

    1. Yes, me too. I absolutely loved it. I can't find it anywhere else though. Is there a YouTube link for it anywhere?
