Alabaster Jar

Emee O’Reilly is a dear friend and leads worship at our church.  Over the years, the Lord has given her many songs.  Emee’s music has a way of bypassing all my defenses.  There is a quality about it that leaves me completely vulnerable before the Lord.  Today’s post features a song from her album, The Alabaster Jar.  The title of the song is, “The More I Come to Know You.”  I hope it will minister to you as much as it has me.

The more I come to know You,

the more I realize

the beauty of Your cross,

the depth of Your new life,

the depth of Your new life.

The more I come to know You,

the more I realize

that all I’m really wanting

is to know the revealed Christ,

to know the revealed Christ.

For I was meant to be

filled with majesty,

nothing of my own,

just You and You alone.

Yes I was meant to be

a temple for the King,

whose living waters flow

through fragile human souls.
