'Til I only dwell in Thee

Chelsea told Krista and I about this beautiful song last week...little else has been played on our ipods since. Krista even figured out how to play it on the piano. It sinks in and haunts your soul in the most awesome way.

Hymn by Brooke Fraser

If to distant lands I scatter
If I sail to farthest seas
Would you find and firm and gather 'til I only dwell in Thee?

If I flee from greenest pastures
Would you leave to look for me?
Forfeit glory to come after
'Til I only dwell in Thee

If my heart has one ambition
If my soul one goal to seek
This my solitary vision 'til I only dwell in Thee
That I only dwell in Thee
'Til I only dwell in Thee 

I have lots of goals and ambitions right now...I guess I only need One.

This is perhaps the least lame of the videos on youtube...they didn't have the song on I guess you get to enjoy the waves and other waters while you listen...sorry.

Thanks for sharing Chels!

I'm glad to hear Krista learned it on the piano. How I wish we were all together in So Ville to play music on Friday nights.
