DAY 1: a favorite song

"Trying to choose a favorite song is like trying to choose your favorite star out of the heavens!"
I love music! I love the way music seeps into your soul and overflows into singing! I love songs that exalt our Creator and proclaim His Son as Lord of all and Savior of the world. I love songs which contrast who I am with WHO HE IS!
So consider, that when I say the following is my favorite song...it is in the top 50:)
One of the songs that has been special to me for many years is Knowing You.

Knowing You
All I once held dear built my 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 

 (Chorus:) 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 heart's 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 suffering 
To become like you in your death my Lord 
So with You to live And never die

My highest desire is to know Christ and "to be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead." (Philippians 3:7-11)
Everything else is loss to me if I KNOW CHRIST!

That song is ONE OF my favorites too! ;) It's one of those songs that gets me all choked up when I sing it. It's a constant battle to sing with sincerity lyrics like "knowing you Jesus... there is NO GREATER THING." I pray that those words are true in my life more of the time than they aren't. Thanks for sharing, Soph!
