I Rarely Ask, but...

...I'm asking for a few minutes of your time. If you don't have those minutes now, mark this page as a favorite (you too, Reader addicts) and come back very soon.

I've been introduced to these videos via other blogs or emails recently, and even though I often pass right by opportunities like this, I'm glad, in this case, I did not. I simply cannot tell you how much these songs mean to me, and to have such beautiful images to go along with them... they are indelibly etched in my mind, and I'm glad they are.

Make sure it's quiet for a moment, pay attention to only one thing for just this moment. Listen to the lyrics. Enjoy the visual creativity.



Lyrics--Casting Crowns/Who Am I
Who am I, that the Lord of all the earth
Would care to know my name
Would care to feel my hurt
Who am I, that the Bright and Morning Star
Would choose to light the way
For my ever wandering heart

BRIDGE
Not because of who I am
But because of what You've done
Not because of what I've done
But because of who You are

CHORUS
I am a flower quickly fading
Here today and gone tomorrow
A wave tossed in the ocean
Vapor in the wind
Still You hear me when I'm calling
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling
And You've told me who I am
I am Yours, I am Yours

Who am I, that the eyes that see my sin
Would look on me with love and watch me rise again
Who am I, that the voice that calmed the sea
Would call out through the rain
And calm the storm in me
(bridge/chorus)


I am Yours
Whom shall I fear
Whom shall I fear
'Cause I am Yours
I am Yours



Lyrics-Lifehouse/Everything
Find Me Here, Speak To Me
I want to feel you, I need to hear you
You are the light That's leading me
To the place where I find peace again.
You are the strength, that keeps me walking.
You are the hope, that keeps me trusting.
You are the light to my soul. You are my purpose...you're everything.

How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
You calm the storms, and you give me rest.
You hold me in your hands, you won't let me fall.
You steal my heart, and you take my breath away.
Would you take me in? Take me deeper now?
How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?


Cause you're all I want, You're all I need You're everything,everything
You're all I want, you're all I need You're everything, everything.
You're all I want, you're all I need. You're everything, everything
You're all I want, you're all I need, you're everything, everything.

  1. Ok, here I sit with tears in my eyes. Thank you for sharing these.

    My kids have been involved in doing "human videos" for years and I've always thought they were so powerful. One of the most thought provoking was the one to "I Can Only Imagine" that my oldest daughter and friends put together in a rest area on their way to a Mexico mission trip.

    I have never seen one like the first one and I am going to forward the link to her as she and her husband are youth pastors at our church. The 2nd one just left me in tears, what a great visual reminder.

    Thanks again, so much, for sharing!

    My oldest girls are in a Yputh Group at our church that does performances like that for our congregation and others. It is always so beautiful!

  4. That is my favorite Lifehouse song of all time. I have seen that video around on myspace, but it never ceases to be moving. It's amazing how much music can speak to us and how God uses it on a daily basis to speak to me. Thanks for sharing!
