Jesus, Draw Me

 

“Just as we have borne the image of the earthy, we will also bear the image of the heavenly.”

1 Corinthians 15:49 

Another great feature of the 2010 True Woman Conferences is the worship music led by Keith and Kristyn Getty. This past weekend in Indianapolis, they shared their beautiful hymn “Jesus Draw Me Ever Nearer” with the women in attendance. They also shared the news that a baby Getty is on the way!  

Below is a video of the Gettys performing this song and a few more at a past concert event.  

 

Jesus Draw Me Ever Nearer

Jesus draw me ever nearer
As I labor thro’ the storm
You have called me to this passage
And I’ll follow tho’ I’m worn
 

May this journey bring a blessing
May I rise on wings of faith
And at the end of my heart’s testing
With Your likeness let me wake
 

Jesus guide me thro’ the tempest
Keep my spirit staid and sure
When the midnight meets the morning
Let me love You even more
 

Let the treasures of the trial
Form within me as I go
And at the end of this long passage
Let me leave them at Your throne

Keith and Kristyn Getty Perform “By Faith”

“…without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”

Hebrews 11:6

Modern hymnwriters Keith and Kristyn Getty perform their powerful and inspirational song “By Faith.”

“By Faith”

By faith we see the hand of God 
In the light of creation’s grand design 
In the lives of those who prove His faithfulness 
Who walk by faith and not by sight  
 
By faith our fathers roamed the earth 
With the power of His promise in their hearts 
Of a holy city built by God’s own hand 
A place where peace and justice reign  
 
We will stand as children of the promise 
We will fix our eyes on Him our soul’s reward 
Till the race is finished and the work is done 
We’ll walk by faith and not by sight  
 
By faith the prophets saw a day 
When the longed-for Messiah would appear 
With the power to break the chains of sin and death 
And rise triumphant from the grave  
 
By faith the church was called to go 
In the power of the Spirit to the lost 
To deliver captives and to preach good news 
In every corner of the earth  
 
We will stand…  
 
By faith this mountain shall be moved 
And the power of the gospel shall prevail 
For we know in Christ all things are possible 
For all who call upon His name  
 
We will stand…
