My One Desire

By Rick Founds, Larry Holder, Steve Israel and Elton Smith

CCLI Number: 4036041

I wrote the music with some assistance from Steve. Larry suggested the opening line of the chorus, from which Rick developed the rest of chorus, taking a simple stone and creating from it a multi-faceted jewel. Larry and Steve wrote most of the other lyrics. - Elton, April 15, 2003

Steve created the recording in January 2010.

(Verse 1)
You love me as a Father loves His child
Your boundless grace pours out to me;
I am fully reconciled.
Your Spirit calls, and I reply,
"Lord lead me day by day
To know Your perfect will, Your holy Way."

(Chorus)
My one desire
To know You in the fullness of Your Grace
To hear "Well done, my precious one"
When we meet face to face
Lord, I aspire to please You in obedience and faith
For You, my God, are worthy of all praise.

(Verse 2)
Your favor has sustained me all my days
The faithfulness You've shown to me;
Oh, how awesome are Your ways.
My heart cries out; I can't contain
The joy that lives in me,
To know that You give life, abundantly!

(Repeat chorus)
My one desire
To know You in the fullness of Your Grace
To hear "Well done, my precious one"
When we meet face to face
Lord, I aspire to please You in obedience and faith
For You, my God, are worthy of all praise.

(Bridge)
As night gives way to morning
I'll arise to meet the dawn
As Your Spirit deep within me
Gives me strength to carry on,
Carry on...

(Repeat chorus)
My one desire
To know You in the fullness of Your Grace
To hear "Well done, my precious one"
When we meet face to face
Lord, I aspire to please You in obedience and faith
For You, my God, are worthy of all praise.

(Ending)
You, my God, are worthy of all praise.

My husband and I will sing this song tomorrow as we have several times before, we are always blessed as are those who hear it. It reminds us that we should desire Him above all else and look forward to meeting him face to face (another of the songs that we found here and love to share!)
My God continue to bless you as you serve him with your talents!
