Give me Jesus…

I had a day today that was filled with mystery and wondering…

I found myself humming this song and repeating the words as I wondered what God might be up to….

It is a simple song…

It has powerful words…

It brings me comfort…(click on the link and listen to the clear and simple words)

Give me Jesus

In the morning, when I rise
In the morning, when I rise
In the morning, when I rise, give me Jesus

Give me Jesus,
Give me Jesus,
You can have all this world,
But give me Jesus

When I am alone
When I am alone
When I am alone, give me Jesus

Give me Jesus,
Give me Jesus,
You can have all this world,
But give me Jesus

When I come to die
When I come to die
When I come to die, give me Jesus

Give me Jesus,
Give me Jesus,
You can have all this world,
You can have all this world,
You can have all this world,
But give me Jesus

I have been a Christian for many years, and yet when I sing this song, I often find myself asking if I believe that all I need is Jesus…

I believe we are created for community….

I believe Jesus gives us much on this earth, inviting us to experience Him in very tangible ways…

AND

I believe that the words to this song offer us an invitation….an invitation to know that it really is this simple…and I want to continue to believe, live and embrace the words…you can have all this world…give me Jesus!
