Today's Hymn: All I Once Held Dear

All I Once Held Dear

All I once held dear

All I once held dear
Built my life upon,
All this world reveres,
And wars to own,
All I once thought gain
I have counted loss;
Spent and worthless now,
Compared to this.

Knowing You, Jesus,
Knowing You,
There is no greater thing.
You’re my all
You’re the best,
You’re my joy, my righteousness,
And I love You, Lord.

Now my heart’s desire
Is to know You more,
To be found in You
And known as Yours,
To possess by faith
What I could not earn,
All-surpassing gift
Of righteousness.

Oh, to know the power
Of Your risen life,
And to know You in
Your sufferings,
To become like You
In Your death, my Lord,
So with You to live
And never die.
