There's One Thing

By Rick Founds, Rhesa Siregar and Paul Gentry

In these days of uncertainty and stress, there's a place where we can find confidence and peace. God's Word tells us, in Psalm 27, "For in the day of trouble He will keep me safe... He will hide me... shelter me... and set me high upon a rock.... He will not reject me or forsake me." Our hope is that the words of this song, and the uplifting melody will make it possible for you, like the Psalmist, to "... sing and make music to the LORD." ... no matter what may come!

(Introduction for 8 measures)

(Verse 1)
You are the light of life
the one who saves me
and frees me from all fear
I trust in Your love, Lord God of Power and might
For You are always near

There's one thing I ask
There's one thing I pray
There's one thing that I am longing for
To be closer to You
With each passing day
until I can see Your beauty Lord

(Verse 2)
You are my strength, O Lord
A shield around me
My help in time of need
I won't be afraid, no matter what may come
For You'll never leave me

(Repeat Chorus)
There's one thing I ask
There's one thing I pray
There's one thing that I am longing for
To be closer to You
With each passing day
until I can see Your beauty Lord

My soul wants to fly
My heart's overflowing with joy
A joy that will not fade away
For You've heard my cry
You'll never turn me away
You'll never leave me, Lord

(Piano Solo)

(Repeat Chorus Two Times)
There's one thing I ask
There's one thing I pray
There's one thing that I am longing for
To be closer to You
With each passing day
until I can see Your beauty Lord

There's one thing I ask
(To see Your beauty Lord)
There's one thing I pray
(To see Your beauty Lord)

Great song! I had just finished writing a sermon on Ps 23:4 and was looking for a song on the site "You're always" there but found this one! It fits exactly.
God bless

I was looking online for Bible stories to read with my children and, while surfing, came across this site. My children and I liked this song and tried to learn it and sing along. We read the comment left by Fanyihui and were touched by it. We will be praying for you and your parents Fanyihui. God bless you.

There's just one thing I desire and crave for. It is to be like Jesus and be with Him one day. I love the song as well as its lyrics. Praise God for this!
