Captivate Us

There is a song by Watermark entitled "Captivate Us" that I absolutely love. It seems to describe what my heart is feeling so much better that I can do with my own words. When I listen to this song, my heart is drawn right into the throne room of God, straight into worship. My hearts cry is "Captivate us Lord Jesus, with You".

Your face is beautiful
And Your eyes are like the stars
Your gentle hands have healing
There inside the scars
Your loving arms they draw me near
And Your smile it brings me peace
Draw me closer oh my Lord
Draw me closer Lord to Thee
Captivate us, Lord Jesus
Set our eyes on You
Devastate us with Your presence
Falling down
And rushing river, draw us nearer
Holy fountain consume us with You
Captivate us Lord Jesus, with You

Your voice is powerful
And Your words are radiant bright
In Your breath and shadow
I will come close and abide
You whisper love and life divine
And Your fellowship is free
Draw me closer O my Lord
Draw me closer Lord to Thee


Let everything be lost in the shadows
Of the light of Your face
Let every chain be broken from me
As I’m bound in Your grace
For Your yoke is easy, Your burden is light
You’re full of wisdom, power and might
And every eye will see You

Lisa, what a joy to be "found." We are living down here in South Georgia where I serve a small congregation. Kathy is busy homeschooling our four kids! (Emma 11, Elijah 8, Evan 6, Kate 5) I think of our time in Franklin often and the things that God taught us there. Blessings to you, Randy and Jonathan. (Psalm 25)
