Yearn


Yearn
by Shane Barnard

holy design

this place in time

that i might seek and find my God

my God

Lord i want to yearn for You

i want to burn with passion

over You and only You

Lord i want to yearn

Your joy is mine

yet why am i fine

with all my singing and bringing grain

in light of Him

oh You give life and breath

through Him You give all things

in Him we live and move

that's why i sing

acts 17:25-28, hebrews 12:28-29
I got the chance to see Shane and Shane live last Thursday night. I have been listening to their music for years, even back to when it was just Shane Bernard, and each time I hear them live it just blows me away!! They sound so beautiful, they are so passionate for who they are singing for...Jesus! This is one of my favorite songs they sing. After the concert I went home and looked up the lyrics. I can sing a song so many times, but with out tunes I hear it very differently. I like to use this song as a daily prayer. Asking God's guidence to seek Him, to burn with a passion for Him, and to praise Him for the reason that He is who He is. :)

Absolutely beautiful. I am not familiar with their music, but their lyrics touch my heart.

Steph! Thanks for finding me on blogger. Congrats about the new baby on the way!!! Those photos are fantastic - it will be fun to see the baby grow through pictures of your belly! You are so cute.

We saw Caroline Fever at Wellspring on Monday and she mentioned you had a blog...so I'm glad we are "connected" that way. It would be fun to see you and Thad this spring/summer when he's got some time off.
