I Want More

Aaron Niequist

 

I want more, I want more

than some boring dead religion

I want more, I want more

than to color in somebody's lines

More, I want to live a life of love and passion

I want to know Jesus  Christ

 

Jesus came to earth to bring

A way to live forgiven, found, and free

For something bigger than me, for eternity!

 

I want more, I want more

than some boring dead religion

I want more, I want more

than to color in somebody's lines

More, I want to live a life of love and passion

I want to know Jesus  Christ

 

It’s Jesus we are following,          

In joining Him in everything, we sing:

"How many friends can I bring... for eternity!"

 

I want more, I want more

than some boring dead religion

I want more, I want more

than to color in somebody's lines

More, I want to live a life of love and passion

I want to know Jesus  Christ

 

Jesus I will dive into Your

Kingdom with my life today!

Jesus I will dive into Your

Kingdom with my life today!

Jesus I will dive into Your

Kingdom with my life today in

everything I am and every

way I play and pray I'll say I'll

follow You and do the things You

do in love and grace and truth and

never, never, never, never,

never be the same I LOVE YOU!

 

I want more, I want more

than some boring dead religion

I want more, I want more

than to color in somebody's lines

More, I want to live a life of love and passion

I want to know Jesus  Christ

The I Want More EP

I recorded these three songs in my basement back in 2003. They were intended to be the first three songs of a whole worship album. . . but we moved to Michigan during the recording and I never finished it! maybe some day. It’s weird. . .I was trying to write songs for the youth ministry (Student Impact) that I was a part of at the time, but the songs ended up being much more personal. it was a real dark time spiritually, and I needed to believe that there was more to God than “some boring, dead religion”. I still need to believe that. There a sadness in these songs that hints at some of the doubt and cynicism bubbling just underneath the smile. But there is also a desperate hope and a reaching upward toward something - SOMEONE - bigger than myself and my perspective. There must be more to life and faith and reality. . .and I want in.
