Knowing you

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 known 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
