“Lord, I Need You” – Monday Musical Musings

In our world of self-sufficiency, it can sometimes be difficult to understand that we really aren’t self-sufficient. When it comes to our relationship with God, we desperately need Him.


IMAG1492Today’s melody teaches us this valuable lesson. Each moment of every day, our souls long for God. We need God.


Take a look at David’s words from an artistic version of Scripture called The Voice. While this is still very new to me and I will continue looking at this version, Psalm 40:17 is beautiful in this version.


“Meanwhile, I am empty and need so much, but I know the Lord is thinking of me. You are my help; only You can save me, my True God. Please hurry.” (Psalm 40:17 – The Voice)


Doesn’t this reflect our own lives? Sometimes we wait until we are bone dry to seek God and then we ask Him to hurry! Oh how we need to be reminded that we need God all the time. Each hour of every day we need Him to show up in our lives, not just when we’ve hit a rough patch.


So today, take a look at the words and listen to the recording of this song. I pray that you will be blessed as I have been.


“Lord, I Need You”


Lord, I come, I confess
Bowing here I find my rest
Without You I fall apart
You’re the One that guides my heart
Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

Where sin runs deep Your grace is more
Where grace is found is where You are
And where You are, Lord, I am free
Holiness is Christ in me


Teach my song to rise to You
When temptation comes my way
And when I cannot stand I’ll fall on You
Jesus, You’re my hope and stay

Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
