About "Without You, Within Me"

 

 

I woke up one morning around 3:00am and jumped out of bed with a melody running through my spirit. I went downstairs and began praying and singing and this song began forming.  I had to go to work, but the melody kept flowing in a non-stop loop through me.  I told my boss I had to go home.  I did, and God gave the song.  I cried more that day than I ever have in my life...every time I thought I was through crying and sobbing, I would start up again......for the first time I realized that, without Jesus, I am.....nothing.  I listen to this song nearly every day.

Lyrics

 

I know there is no good within me, without you

No grace, no mercy, no peace

No early release from the prison of sin

My Lord, now I can see from down on my knees

That I am nothing -  Without you, within me

 

I know there is no hope within me, without you

No love, no freedom, no truth

And no gratitude for the great sacrifice

My Lord, now I can see from down on my knees

That I am nothing - Without you, within me

 

Oh, the spark you placed within my heart

Has become a roaring fire

Illuminating all the dark

Incinerating every lie

 

I know there is no life within me, without you

No breath, no pardon from death

No giving my best to the sweet Lamb of God

 

My Lord, now I can see from down on my knees

That I am nothing - Without you, within me

 

My Lord, now I can see from down on my knees

That I am nothing - Without you, within me

From the real Author:

 

Romans 7:18

For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.

 

Psalm 16:2

I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
    apart from you I have no good thing."

 

John 15:5

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

 

1 Corinthians 15:19

If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.

 

Psalm 31:24

Be strong and take heart,
    all you who hope in the Lord.

 

Acts 17:28

‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’

 

Jeremiah 20:9

But if I say, “I will not mention his word
    or speak anymore in his name,”
his word is in my heart like a fire,
    a fire shut up in my bones.
I am weary of holding it in;
    indeed, I cannot.

 

Isaiah 43:25
"I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more.
