You're Here I Am

Aaron Niequist

 

I've heard that You're mighty

I've heard that You live somewhere above

I know that you made me

But sometimes it's hard to feel You love

 

I've heard that You're righteous

I've heard that You're everything I'm not

I want to be certain,

I’ve tried for so long but I cannot

 

But I know that you hear me

`Cause I know that You're here

And I know that You're near me

So I do my best to give all of myself to You now

So here I am

Here I am

Here I am

Here I am

 

I've heard that You're patient

I've heard that You're never very far

I want to be closer

I want to know who You really are

 

But I know that you hear me

`Cause I know that You're here

And I know that You're near me

So I do my best to give all of myself to You now

So here I am

Here I am

Here I am

Here I am

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.
