In Your Presence, Lord

One thing have I inquired of the Lord
That will I seek after
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
All the days of my life

In Your Presence, Lord
In Your Presence, Lord

Let me behold Your beauty, Oh Lord
Inquiring in Your temple
For in Your Presence is fullness of joy
In Your right hand are pleasures forever

In Your Presence, Lord
In Your Presence, Lord

Oh I was glad when they said unto me
Let us go to the house of the Lord
When You called saying, “Come seek My face”
My heart said, “Your face, Oh Lord….
Will I seek.”

One thing have I inquired of the Lord
That will I seek after
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
All the days of my life

In Your Presence, Lord
In Your Presence, Lord

Gazing at Your beauty
Praising all Your glory
Drinking of the River
Of Your purest delight
Hiding in the shadow
Of Your wings forever
Dwelling in Your temple
All the days of my life
In Your Presence, Lord

A Few Words About This CD...

Presented to all who hunger and thirst for the Presence of God.
Drink deeply of these mysteries.
The songs are little, but the truths they contain are not.
Every song presented here should be thought of in its Eucharistic context.
May God grant us light as we contemplate.

In writing Christian music,
lyrics have to be
the heartbeat of the song.
After all, it is the lyrics
that primarily distinguish Christian music
from secular music.
It's not the only mark
of distinction,
but it is
the most important.
