Had the privilege of preaching at a meeting for the combined churches hosted by the pastors of Mount Gambier tonight.
Another privilege is knowing that the theme of a sermon which emphasises faith in the resurrected Christ and living lives of sacrificial love in Christian community is part of the hearts of the leaders of the Churches in this town.
Matthew, another one of the local pastors, was able to lead in song and as part preparation for my preach he sang a song recorded by the group Casting Crowns called Who Am I?
It may not suit congregational singing (but then again, it might), but it is a very good song to listen to.
I don’t have any Casting Crowns in my music collection, but I think I’ll look them out.
Sadly their website doesn’t seem to handle their own albums for download.
The lyrics.
1.
Who am I?
That the Lord of all the earth,
Would care to know my name,
Would care to feel my hurt.
Who am I?
That the bright and morning star,
Would choose to light the way,
For my ever wondering heart.
Prechorus:
Not because of who I am.
But because of what you’ve done.
Not because of what I’ve done.
But because of who you are.
Chorus:
I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow.
A wave tossed in the ocean,
A vapor in the wind.
Still you hear me when I’m calling,
Lord you catch me when I’m falling,
And you told me who I am.
I am yours.
I am yours.
2.
Who am I?
That the eyes that see my sin
Would look on me with love
And watch me rise again
Who am I?
That the voice that calm the sea,
Would call out through the rain,
And calm the storm in me.
Prechorus:
Not because of who I am.
But because what of youve done.
Not because of what I’ve done.
But because of who you are.
Chorus:
I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow.
A wave tossed in the ocean,
A vapor in the wind.
Still you hear me when I’m calling,
Lord you catch me when I’m falling,
And you told me who I am.
I am yours.
Prechorus:
Not because of who I am.
But because of what you’ve done.
Not because of what I’ve done.
But because of who you are.
Chorus:
I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow.
A wave tossed in the ocean,
A vapor in the wind.
Still you hear me when I’m calling,
Lord you catch me when I’m falling,
You told me who I am.
I am yours.
I am yours.
Bridge/Outro:
Whom shall I fear?
Whom shall I fear?
‘Cuz I am yours.
I am yours.
