“Jesus” – a song about seeing my reflection in Living Water

Jesus!

By, Chelan Rene’ Russ

10/2006

The way I lived last week, even last night

Has not been a reflection of you, Lord

The very things I claim are so important

I’ve put myself above and just ignored

::

Oh, let everything I do

Let everywhere I go

Let every word I say

Seek your glory and your fame

::

Jesus!

Jesus!

Jesus!

Oh the power in that name…

Jesus!

Jesus!

Jesus! (Repeat)

::

The power in my life is seeping out

I’m … finding myself so dry and thirsty

I don’t know what my purpose is; I doubt (but I believe)

The sun came up this morning with new mercies…

::

So let everything I do

Let everywhere I go

Let every word I say

Scream out your holy name…today!

Here’s my attempt to video this song; I think I tried it a few keys too high 🙂 oh well!

    sweet song chelani… that should be the cry of all our hearts, even when our “purpose” is a little fuzzy. At least HE knows the plans he has for us, & we know they’re good! I think part of that “plan” is just the day-to-day- reflecting of him!!! so simple, but that’s what it’s all about. I love you! :))) you are awesome!!
