All I Once Held Dear {Knowing You}

All I once held dear, built me 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 hearts 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.

-Graham Kendrick

  1. I love the lyrics to this song, you've got me humming to it as I type!
    What a beautiful display of how the gospel transforms us from who we were to who we have become in Christ, and the basis of what we build our life upon. Thanks for a great reminder!
