Modern Hymns- In Me

It’s hard to find a person, Christian or not who has listened to Casting Crown and is not a fan. Those guys are excellent musicians, awesome lyricists and most importantly anointed children of God.

I have put up some of their songs before, Here and Here, easy to see I love them… innit? Today’s song has two lines that awe me anytime I listen to the song or think about the song.

How refreshing to know You don’t need me
How amazing to find that You want me

I can’t express in words just how much those lines affect me, sometimes I want to scream in wonder, other times I just want to roll on the floor and worship the awesome God that loved me enough to call me friend.

   In Me– Casting Crowns

If you asked me to leap
Out of my boat on the crashing waves
If you ask me to go
Preach to a lost world that Jesus saves

I’ll go, but I cannot go alone
‘Cause I know I’m nothing on my own
But the power of Christ in me makes me strong
Makes me strong

‘Cause when I’m weak, You make me strong
When I’m blind You shine Your light on me
‘Cause I’ll never get by living on my own ability
How refreshing to know You don’t need me
How amazing to find that you want me
So I’ll stand on Your Truth, and I’ll fight with Your Strength
Until You bring the victory, by the power of Christ in me

If you ask me to run
And carry your light into foreign land
If you ask me to fight
Deliver your people from Satan’s hand

I’ll go, but I cannot go alone
‘Cause I know I’m nothing on my own
But the power of Christ in me makes me strong
Makes me strong

‘Cause when I’m weak, You make me strong
When I’m blind you shine Your light on me
‘Cause I’ll never get by living on my own ability
How refreshing to know You don’t need me
How amazing to find that You want me
So I’ll stand on Your Truth, and I’ll fight with Your Strength
Until You bring the victory, by the power of Christ in me

To reach out with Your hands
To learn through Your eyes
To love with the love of a savior
To feel with Your heart
and to think with Your mind
I’d give my last breath for Your glory

‘Cause when I’m weak, You make me strong
When I’m blind you shine Your light on me
‘Cause I’ll never get by living on my own ability

when I’m weak, You make me strong
When I’m blind you shine Your light on me
‘Cause I’ll never get by living on my own ability
How refreshing to know You don’t need me
How amazing to find that You want me
So I’ll stand on Your Truth, and I’ll fight with Your Strength
Until You bring the victory, by the power of Christ in me
The power of Christ in me
The power of Christ in me

I finally updated the HIV/AIDS series I’ve been running on www.chynanu.blogspot.com, I haven’t updated it in nearly four months- I can’t even explain why. Anyway, Here’s the link to the latest post.
