Song of the Week - You Are My Passion

A song that Tricia and I wrote very easily in 1995. I wrote this melody and when I played it to Tricia, she told me that she had lyrics that would fit perfectly. If only all our songs could be written so quickly! 

In the season when we wrote this song, other writers were writing songs in a similar vein. Intimacy with God was something the church was re-discovering.  

This is a song about drawing near to God and hearing his heartbeat. 

If you are weary in this current season, perhaps as you listen to the song, you will have a sense of being gathered up and carried by our loving God.

You are my passion 
Love of my life 
Friend and companion 
My lover 
All of my being 
Longs for Your touch 
With all my heart 
I love You 


Now will You draw me close to You 
Gather me in Your arms 
Let me hear the beating of Your heart 
O my Jesus 
O my Jesus
