SONG OF THE WEEK: All I Need by Shawn McDonald

Did you watch this video?  I love this acoustic version of Shawn McDonald singing All I Need.  There is something about this song that makes me want to close my eyes (like Shawn Does) and offer the song as a prayer. Too easy to look around and see things and forget- Jesus is all I need…

As I sit here and think
About all that You’ve done
About how You gave me Your one and only Son
And I’m trying to fathom
All that You are, but so far, Lord
You’re so beyond me

I fall down in reverence
And I fall down in fear
And I’m asking You, Lord, won’t You please draw near
Won’t You open my eyes
So that I can see
The way that You are working in me

All I need is Your love
To come and fill this heart of mine
My heart is a desert that has gone dry
And I need Your love to carry me bye, bye, bye, bye, bye
To carry me bye, bye, bye, bye, bye
To carry me bye

And I lay down my life
And I put it before You
All that I am is in Your hands
And I’m not going to question, why You’re so faithful
Why that You give me the blessing that You have
Let the glory be known, let the glory be shown
Lift You up unto the throne

You are my God, You are my King
To You I give, I give You everything
All that I need is Your love, my God
