So I realize that I post lots of songs, and I apologize for that if you don’t like songs. This is my blog and I will post many songs, so get used to it 🙂

I heard this song two nights ago when trying to fall asleep. Typically I listen to a CD rather than the radio because I like to wake up to quietness (well, besides my alarm), but for some reason I had my radio that night. This song came on. I was in awe. I’m sure I’ve heard it before, but never like I heard it two nights ago. I couldn’t remember the name of the song when I woke up, so I e-mailed the station and just got an e-mail back telling me the artist and title.

Jesus, my passion in life is to know You
– I was so taken by this. It has been a long day, and I had been frustrated because other passions were getting in my way. My sight was clouded and I was confused.
May all other goals bow down to
This journey of loving You more
-I was so glad to hear this line! I was able get all those other passions to go away!  I literally wanted them to bow down to my real glory, joy and passion-Knowing and loving Jesus more
Jesus, You’ve showered Your goodness on me
Given Your gifts so freely
But there’s one thing I’m longing for
Hear my heart’s cry
And my prayer for this life
– It was my heart’s cry-I wanted Jesus, I wanted Him to be in the forefront on my mind and life.

Above all else
Above all else
Above all else
Give me Yourself
-I was about to cry listening to the chorus of this song. It’s so beautiful and simple and Vicky Beeching has a very sweet voice.

Savior, the more that I see Your beauty
The more that I glimpse Your glory
My heart is captured by You
Jesus, You are my greatest treasure
Nothing this world can offer
Could ever compare to You
So, hear my heart’s cry
And my prayer for this life
-So pretty, so amazing, so true, just what I needed to hear.

This is one of my top songs and I think I will print it out to be my prayer for  while 🙂

    This is one of my favorite songs, as well. On more than one occasion, it’s completely shifted my perspective back to where it should be. And you’re right, Vicky Beeching does have a beautiful voice that suits this song perfectly.

    Funny thing: I saw this blog on Vicky Beeching’s while going through Google Reader tonight, and also trying to fall asleep. Maybe she needs to record a “sounds of the ocean” CD or something. Thank you for posting this!
